As the Dallas Cowboys prepare to face their third straight NFC opponent to open the season, there are still plenty of questions to be answered with this team despite their resilient and impressive comeback victory last Sunday.
This week the test gets no easier as they head to Seattle to face early season MVP Russell Wilson. The Seahawks have developed into one of the more intriguing non-division matchups that the Cowboys face regularly over the last handful of years. The Cowboys won the last matchup 24-22 in the NFC Wild Card game and lead the series 11-9.
As for Sunday’s game this matchup will be defined by how well these two explosive offenses play, both defenses have struggled thus far this season and it will be on the offenses to set the tone and control the tempo for this matchup. The Cowboys secondary is beat up as they will be without start Chidobe Awuzie,
who was filling in for Anthony Brown and now both are on IR. Trevon Diggs is also dealing with a shoulder injury that has limited him in practice. For this Cowboys secondary to hold up versus DK Metcalf and Tyler Locket it’s important the Cowboys do something they have yet to do this year and that’s pressure and sack the quarterback. If the Cowboys can create havoc for Russell Wilson with their four down lineman
that will allow the Cowboys to mix their coverages in the secondary in hopes of forcing Wilson into a bad decision that they can capitalize off of.
