Dallas Cowboys edge-rusher Micah Parsons showcased his dominance against the Carolina Panthers, recording 2.5 sacks in a 33-10 victory at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. However, Parsons revealed a regrettable mistake after the game that affected his performance.
Despite his outstanding plays, Parsons admitted that he wasn’t at his best due to the effects of consuming too much C4 energy drink powder. The star defender mentioned feeling his heart racing just a few plays into the game.

“I got some water to help put it down. By the fifth play, it felt like my heart was gonna jump outta my chest. I felt like I was about to explode. I’m never doing that [stuff] again,” Parsons explained.
Micah Parsons was not sick. He took some C4 energy powder before the game. “I got some water to help put it down. By the fifth play it felt like my heart was gonna jump outta my chest. I felt like I was about to explode. I’m never doing that shit again.”— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) November 19, 2023
While Parsons acknowledged the mishap, he seems inclined to continue using the pre-workout beverage but with a more cautious approach, likely opting for a smaller dose in the future.
