It’s playoff time! The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys both finished 10-6 in the 2018 NFL regular season, but Seattle was second in the NFC West, while the Cowboys won the NFC East, so this game will be held at Dallas, and it’s a primetime affair on Saturday night.
When these two teams met in Week 3, the Seahawks won at home by the score of 24-13, with Chris Carson rushing for 102 yards and a touchdown, while the defense forced three turnovers. However, a lot has changed since then. Brandon Marshall isn’t on Seattle’s roster anymore. Dallas traded for Amari Cooper, who has been great for them. Earl Thomas picked Dak Prescott off twice in that first game, he’s out for the season. Doug Baldwin didn’t play for the Seahawks due to injury, neither did Justin Britt nor K.J. Wright. Rookie LB Leighton Vander Esch has an increased role in Dallas’ defense compared to back then.
This is the third meeting between Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott, and the previous two games have gone in Seattle’s favor. Will the third time be the charm for Dak? The Seahawks will make sure that isn’t the case, and that they can shut down him and Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper, while imposing their rushing attack on offense, along with the big play abilities of Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett.
