The Seattle Seahawks (3-1) are coming off a sloppy performance against the Washington Redskins. Seattle had several scoring opportunities called back due to penalties. It was a surprisingly undisciplined performance by the defending champs. If the Seahawks are going to win this week, they’ll need to correct the mental mistakes.
The Dallas Cowboys (4-1) are coming off an overtime victory against their in-state rivals, the Houston Texans. Tony Romo played brilliantly throwing for two touchdowns on the afternoon. Romo’s escape from what looked like a guaranteed J.J. Watt sack, turned into a 43 yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, demonstrated his superior play making abilities. Romo will need to continue to play at an elite level if the Cowboys have any chance of going into CenturyLink Field and pulling off the upset.
Seahawks Vs Cowboys Week 6 Odds
Here are the odds from Betonline.ag
Dallas +8 (-110)
Seattle -8 (-110)
Seahawks: Seattle is coming off a win but no one in the Seahawks’ locker room played particularly well in the victory. The exception, of course, is Russell Wilson who ran 11 times for 122 yards and 1 touchdown. He also threw for 2 scores. It was a one-man-show and Wilson was the star. While it’s great to see Wilson succeed as a dual threat quarterback, leaving the pocket exposes Wilson to the risk of injury. There have been many comparisons between Russell Wilson and RG3 because they are from the same draft class and have a similar skill set. Unlike RG3, Russell Wilson has excelled being a pocket passer. With RG3 lost for much of the season, his injury should serve as a lesson to all mobile quarterbacks: Think, pass first. Then, if there’s no other option and the play is breaking down, run. Quarterbacks cannot make a living outside the pocket in the NFL. The Seattle coaching staff must learn from the mistakes of others. Wilson needs to settle down and get back to sitting back and handing the ball off. If no one is open, throw the ball away. Don’t expect to see Wilson running like that again any time soon.
Cowboys: Dallas is coming off an overtime win that could have easily gone the other way. Houston running back Arian Foster had a lot of success on the ground to the tune of 157 yards and 2 touchdowns. If Dallas has any chance against Seattle this week, they’ll need to contain Marshawn Lynch, Percy Harvin, and Russell Wilson. Dallas, on the other hand, has arguably the best offensive-line and running back combination in the league. DeMarco Murray has rushed for over 100 yards in every game this season. Facing a solid Seattle defense, it will be paramount that Dallas establishes a ground game early. The Cowboys balance on offense has so far lead to 4 victories on the season and it will play an important role this week as well. If the Cowboys can run the ball early and setup short second and third downs, Dallas will have a shot at the upset.
The Seahawks are the best team in the NFL but the Cowboys might be the most improved. DeMarco Murray will be the focus of the Seattle defense. If Murray rushes for more than 100 yards, then the Cowboys will win. Murray has not only rushed for over 100 yards each week this season, but he has also fumbled in every game. This game will come down to who can play error free football. If the Cowboys can run the ball and control the clock, then they’ll keep it close. This game will be decided by less than 7 points. The home team won’t cover the point spread but where there’s Russell Wilson there’s a way. The Seahawks win by a field goal.
