DeMarcus Ware is looking for a game like Von Miller and Aldon Smith had last week

Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller had three sacks and two forced fumbles in his team's 30-23 victory over the Chargers on Sunday. 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith was even better the next day, with a career-high 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in his team's 32-7 victory over the Bears.

"Crazy," Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware remarked.

Ware, who twice has led the league in sacks, now trails Smith (15), Miller (13) and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt (11.5). He has 10 this season, his seventh season with double-digit sacks. Only Reggie White, who had nine consecutive double-digit sack seasons, and John Randle, who had eight, have more in NFL history.

"I just look at [the sack leaders] at the end of the season," Ware said. "I don’t really think about. I think about what can I do to affect the quarterback in this game coming up. We’re going to have to get some pressure on [Robert Griffin III] to win this game."

Ware is due a big game. He has had eight games with three or more sacks, but he hasn't had one of those since an Oct. 30, 2011, game against the Eagles when he had a personal-best four.

"I’m due for something," Ware said. "I watched those pass-rushers [Smith and Miller]. They’ve been playing really well. It’s time for me to blossom a little bit."
