Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is special.

The 23-year-old recorded his 11th interception of the season when he picked off Washington Football Team quarterback Taylor Heinicke in the first quarter of Sunday night's game at AT&T Stadium.

He leads the NFL in interceptions and tied Everson Walls for the most interceptions in a season in Cowboys history. He also has the most interceptions of any player since Walls recorded 11 in 1981.

Diggs is just three interceptions shy of tying the NFL's all-time record. After Sunday's game against Washington, he'll have two more games to either tie or set the record.
