The Cowboys avoided a disastrous 0-2 start by beating the Giants on Football Night in America. It was hardly an indicator that this team is going to challenge Philly in the division, though they did not look very good either. This is another winnable game though that could change some opinions. .
Seattle is in a rough spot right now at 0-2. With the Rams soaring the changing of the guard in the NFC West might be a little more painful than expected. Seattle just doesn’t look right in any phase of the game right now. Russell Wilson is all on his own.
There were not a ton of positives from last week’s win against the Giants but sometimes you just have to get the job done and they covered too so there can’t be too many complaints. This is still a flawed group missing a key player in center Travis Frederick.
Even without Frederick the Cowboys put up decent numbers on the ground. Ezekiel Elliott was OK but they are not mauling opponents with the running game the way they did when he was a rookie. They need to get back to that style for a bunch of reasons.
Dallas did do a good job on defense against the Giants. Saquon Barkley got nothing going on the ground even if he was a fantasy darling with 14 receptions. Odell Beckham Jr. was essentially quiet all night too. They sacked Eli Manning six times and anytime you can get that sort of pressure you are going to be in a good spot.
The Cowboys can come into this game with some measure of confidence but they need to get off to a good start. Seattle might not have the team it did a couple of years ago but CenturyLink is still a tough place to play. Pounding away with Elliott early and grabbing a lead would make a big difference.
For a while it was obvious that the Seahawks were one of the best teams in the league but as it is these things cycle through and it seems like a down cycle is upon them. They suddenly went from being a star laden team to one with a good quarterback and perhaps not much else. They were fun when they were rolling!.
Even though Wilson is still a strong quarterback the core of the Seahawks success was a pounding running game and a punishing defense. They were able to turn over the Bears a couple of times on Monday night but through a couple of games the rushing attack has been pathetic. There is no reason to fear this group right now. .
Things do not look good and unfortunately for Seahawks fans it does not look like they are going to get much better. Nobody in the league believes that their offensive line is any good which means that Wilson will be running for his life and they are still not going to get the balance they want to be successful.
Seattle always gets great support from their home fans but they need to get off to a good start in this one. There is nothing worse than a stadium that is usually rocking getting quiet enough to hear a pin drop. Dallas is not a dynamic opponent but their strength in running the football could pose some challenged for Seattle.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Seattle -1
Even with the way they are struggling I think the Seahawks can gut out a win here. Wilson outplays Prescott. .
NFL Free Week 3 Score Prediction: Seattle 23 – Dallas 17
The pressure is on the Seahawks way more than Dallas. I still have some faith in Pete Carroll to get his guys up for a big game.
