The Cowboys lost their first game of the season, but have won four-straight since then and roared into a tie for the NFC East lead at the start of Sunday’s games.
Dallas wasn’t expected to compete for the division title so early, so Seattle will be a great test for the ‘Boys as the nation waits to see if the Lone Star State’s team is real or a fluke.
The Seahawks, on the other hand, were expected to not only compete for the NFC West crown this year, but make it to Glendale, Ariz., to defend their Super Bowl title.
After a rocky 1-1 start, the Seahawks have won respective games against the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins.
Seattle’s 3-1 record has them in a tie with the Arizona Cardinals atop the NFC West.
The Seahawks’ defense was tested by Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense back in Week 3, but on Sunday they will see one of the best run offenses in the league.
DeMarco Murray has become the league’s leading rusher, averaging 134 yards per game on the ground.
His opponent, the Seahawks defense, only allows 62 rushing yards per game, the best in the NFL.
What will give first? Will the Cowboys offensive attack be enough to upset the Seahawks en route to becoming just the second team since 2012 to beat Seattle at CenturyLink Field?
Or will the Seahawks shut down Murray and his outstanding season, forcing the Cowboys to head back to Dallas with a lot more to prove during the 2014 campaign?
