Seattle will be looking to gain some momentum heading into the regular season as they take on the Dallas Cowboys which showed off its offensive prowess against the Dolphins last week.
As the regular season gets closer, both the Seahawks and the Cowboys will be hoping to fire at the key positions and bettors will likely see more from the top-quality quarterbacks and receiving corp.
With fine weather and high temperatures expected for Thursday’s final preseason hit out, expect both teams to substitute heavily and it should be a high-scoring affair in perfect conditions.
Dallas back-up quarterback Dak Prescott is doing everything possible to show the Cowboys coaches that he’s the go-to guy when Tony Romo isn’t available.
Prescott followed up a strong week 1 performance with an even better showing against the Miami Dolphins last week. Prescott went 12/15 and threw for 199 yards for two touchdowns.
The versatile QB also ran for 28 yards at an average of 9.3 yards per carry which will give the Seattle Seahawks plenty to think about on Thursday.
Tony Romo also scored some action and looked good going 4/5 for 49 yards. Third-string QB Jameill Showers continued to struggle in the preseason and will likely be used sparingly in this game.
Dez Bryant has made a big impact in the preseason with limited game time. The star wide receiver had two receptions for 46 yards against Miami and he will be looking for another strong performance again.
The strong Dallas offensive line didn’t allow a sack against Miami and that’s the biggest weapon they possess.
Getting past the O-line will be Seattle’s biggest test, but do they have the firepower to do it?
There wasn’t much to get excited about in Seattle’s 11-18 loss to the Vikings last week. Russell Wilson went 5/11 for 77 yards, Trevone Boykin went 10/20 for 127 yards and Jake Heaps only had garbage time.
To make matters worse, the Seahawks offensive line gave up six sacks which resulted in a loss of 68 yards. The offensive line will have to do a much better job against a hungry Cowboys defense which is improving nicely.
The highly-touted Seattle secondary didn’t get much game time against the Vikings, but expect the likes of Richard Sherman to see more minutes against the Cowboys.
A positive for the Seahawks was the rushing game. They ran for 187 yards on 31 carries with the best performer being Troymaine Pope who went 86 yards on 10 carries.
The Seahawks were best at stopping the run game of the Vikings, but Dallas will likely pick up yards in the passing game.
An improved performance is expected against the Cowboys, but the wrong team might be favored in this game.

The Cowboys looked impressive last week and they finally have some confidence in the quarterback ranks when Tony Romo isn’t in the game.
Being on the road won’t discourage the Cowboys much as they have a great against the spread record in Seattle and the hot temperatures will make them feel right at home.
Getting 5.5 points is a good line for Cowboys bettors and they look impressive heading into the regular season.
