The Seahawks handled the Cowboys with relative ease back in Week Three. Ezekiel Elliot ran for over 100 yards, but the Dallas passing game was terrible. Chris Carson ran well for the Seahawks, and Russell Wilson did enough to lead Seattle to the win.
However, the team Seattle played back then is not the same team they will face this week.
Ever since the Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper, they have had a legit passing game. There were even a couple games down the stretch where they leaned on Dak Prescott to pull out a win with the passing game—and he did.
But the Cowboys also had an absolute stinker of a game in Week 15 against the Colts giving fans reason to worry that the bad version of the team could rear its ugly head.
Seattle will approach this game much in the same way they approached Week Three. They are going to try to run the ball with enough magic from Russell Wilson sprinkled in to win the game. If they can keep Prescott from getting on track early, maybe they can keep the Dallas passing game from getting on track.
Spread: Cowboys by 2.5
Dallas will get out to an early lead, but when they settle for field goals like they often do, it will not be hard for Seattle to get into the game. The Seahawks will keep this one interesting, but in the end, the Cowboys will cover the spread.
The Cowboys don’t tend to score a lot, and their defense will not let the Seahawks score a lot. Take the under.
Money line: Seahawks +115.00; Cowboys -135.14
The two teams will give fans an entertaining game with Dallas edging out Seattle in the end.
