They’ll meet up in a Sunday afternoon NFC tilt that both squads would really, really like to win.
The pressure is on the Cowboys to find some consistency after yet another disappointing loss last week, falling to the New York Giants as recently-named starting quarterback Matt Cassel threw three interceptions. Then, of course, there was the Greg Hardy incident.
The defensive standout, who was suspended for the first four games of the season after a domestic violence incident, not only got into it with a special teams coach on the sideline, but also verbally barbed with teammates as well. That, quite simply, can’t happen. Not if Dallas is still going to content for an NFC East title.
Kickoff for Sunday’s matchup is slated for 4:25 p.m. ET. Here’s everything you need about the the matchup’s betting information, per OddsShark:
Line: Seattle -5.5
Moneyline: Seattle -260, Dallas +210
What To Watch For
The Seattle Seahawks are, finally, starting to feel like the Seattle Seahawks again.
The reigning NFC champions took down the San Francisco 49ers 20-3 last Thursday night in a performance that saw the offense rolling and the Legion of Boom get back to their usual plan of defensive attack.
“We’re on the verge,” safety Kam Chancellor said. “You don’t want to get too high, but we’re on the verge. We’re going in the right direction.”
Now, the Seahawks square off against a Dallas Cowboys team that is floundering on offense. Matt Cassel threw three interceptions against the New York Giants last week – a secondary that is more injured than just about anyone this season.
If the Seattle secondary can bring pressure on the Cowboys, either picking off Cassel or taking advantage of the lack of Dallas receivers on the roster, the Seahawks could very well post a dominant victory in Texas this season.
