The Seattle Seahawks and the Dallas Cowboys will be coming off of close wins in week two as they head into Sunday’s matchup at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks will stay home after beating the New England Patriots after stopping Cam Newton at the goal line as time expired. The Cowboys are looking to build on their own momentum after coming back from a 20-point deficit against the Atlanta Falcons. With both offenses coming off of fantastic performances, this week three matchup will be a must watch. 

Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott, threw for 450 yards with a touchdown and was just as effective rushing, with three touchdowns on five carries. Seattle’s defense will need to apply pressure on Prescott and make him uncomfortable in the pocket if they look to win. In the previous two games Seattle had struggled getting to the quarterback as they allowed Matt Ryan to throw for 450 yards and Newton for nearly 400. 

The Seattle Seahawks enter this week with a diminished defensive lineup with cornerback Marquise Blair and linebacker Bruce Irvin out for the season. This only adds pressure to a defense that ranks last in the league for total yards and passing yards allowed per game. This is arguably the toughest group of receivers Seattle has played this season with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and rookie Cee Dee Lamb leading Dallas. 

Seattle will also face their biggest threat on the ground with Ezekiel Elliot in the backfield who has had a touchdown in each of the first two games. Seattle has fared well against the run as they rank second in the league with allowing only 69.5 rushing yards per game. Stopping Elliot is no easy task and Seattle will need a big game out of linebackers Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright, and rookie Jordyn Brooks, who will start in place of Irvin. 

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense have proven to be an elite force in the league thus far. Wilson had another near perfect performance with throwing for 288 yards and five touchdowns to five different receivers in week two. Seattle’s receivers DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and David Moore will look to have another great game against the Cowboys struggling secondary as they rank 25th in the league in passing defense. Wilson has also included running back, Chris Carson, in the passing game as he has back to back games with a receiving touchdown. The Seahawks offense that ranks 6th in the league for passing yards per game with 287 yards, will look to continue their strong start and attack the Cowboys defense through the air. 

This will be another high scoring affair between two of the NFL’s best offenses. This game will come down to whichever quarterback possess the ball in the final seconds. I see the “Cardiac Hawks” losing in a nail bitter and falling to 2-1 heading into week four.
