S Jeff Heath picked up two assisted tackles, one interception and one pass defensed in the Dallas Cowboys' Week 6 destruction of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Heath, the 57th-ranked DB to this point in 2018, had a quiet game outside of the interception. The Jaguars' offense didn't challenge the Cowboys' defense at any point in this one.
The Dallas Cowboys have slotted Jeff Heath to start at strong safety and Xavier Woods to start at free safety after veterans Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne, Orlando Scandrick and Barry Church were released in the offseason.
Heath had his best season as a pro in 2017 finishing with 63 solo tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. Woods, expected to be more of the coverage option for Dallas, enters his second season. The Cowboys, who added former Seattle coach Kris Richard to coach the secondary, could still trade for Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.
Heath brought some vibrancy to a struggling Cowboys defense by grabbing two interceptions from a faltering Jameis Winston in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.
The Dallas defense is still shaky and not to be trusted in anything more than a streaming scenario, even though Heath showed some resilience in the loss to the Buccaneers.
