Trent Richardson had high praise for the Dallas Cowboys' defensive unit -- especially DeMarcus Ware.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has high praise for the Dallas Cowboys' defensive unit -- especially DeMarcus Ware.

When asked about what stands out about Dallas' defense, Richardson responded by singling out Ware, and his ability to change a game on his own.

Their defensive ends, especially (DeMarcus) Ware. He's one of the most amazing d-ends and vet that has been in the league for a while that knows the game. If you don't cover him up, he can make a lot of trouble in the backfield, whether you're throwing the ball or you're running the ball. With their linebackers, they like to come up and hit you in your mouth. They have pretty quick, fast linebackers that run sideline to sideline. You've got to try to hit one move and go."

Dallas currently ranks 13th in the NFL in run defense, limiting opponents to just 105.2 yards per game on the ground. Dallas' passing defense has been even better, allowing just 213.6 yards per game -- good for No. 7 in the NFL.

Ware has registered nine sacks this season -- good for fourth in the league. He's also notched 39 tackles, and has forced four fumbles, with one fumble recovery to his credit as well. Ware has recorded at least 11 sacks each season since 2006.

With Dallas boasting such a strong pass defense, the onus will be on Richardson on Sunday to drive Cleveland's offense, as the Browns look to dampen Dallas' playoff chances.
