Seahawks-Cowboys final score: Russell Wilson sharp in dress rehearsal victory

NFL: Preseason-Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-17 in the third preseason game of 2016.

Russell Wilson played into the second half, completing 16-of-21 passes for 192 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions. He threw a score to Paul Richardson in the first half and his final throw was a touchdown to Tyler Lockett that came after yet another incredible scramble after his pocket fell apart.

Watch this awesome breakdown of Wilson’s first TD throw to Richardson, by Field Gulls’ own Samuel Gold.

Christine Michael was great again, rushing for 58 yards on seven carries, good for 8.3 YPC. I don’t think Thomas Rawls’ job is in trouble, but they’re going to have to share the ball more than we would have thought a few weeks ago. Rookie C.J. Prosise made his preseason NFL debut, rushing for 23 yards on four carries. Alex Collins had 19 yards on three carries, while Troymaine Pope had four carries for 14 yards.

Wilson hooked up with Tanner McEvoy for a 43-yard gain in the third quarter. Lockett had 41 yards on three catches.

Tony Romo was pulled in the first series after a sack by Cliff Avril tweaked his lower back. Romo told head coach Jason Garrett that he was good to go back in, but Garrett quickly shut down that idea. Ezekiel Elliott, fourth overall pick out of Ohio State, looked awesome as he gained 48 yards on seven carries against the NFL’s number one rush defense from a year ago.

Seattle finishes their preseason next week against the Raiders in Oakland. Don’t expect to see much of Wilson, if at all.
