Matchups to Watch
Tony Romo vs the LOB
Despite the ground game getting so much attention, it will still be a lot of fun to watch the passing game in action. Tony Romo is infamous for his interceptions and late game breakdowns. Today he faces The Legion of Boom and arguably the greatest secondary that the NFL has seen in decades.
Cowboys star WR Dez Bryant will likely be a factor, especially if he matches up on the opposite side of Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell is tasked with defending the 6-2 220 pound monster.
When Sherman and Bryant do meet, expect all eyes to be on the two players that could arguably be considered the best at their respective positions.
Seahawks O-Line vs Cowboys D-Line
Easily one of the weaknesses of the Seahawks is their offensive line’s tendencies thus far to commit penalties. On top of that, C Max Unger is listed as doubtful and G Stephen Schilling will likely make just his third NFL start, his first since 2011! The Seahawks signed C Patrick Lewis off of the Browns practice squad for depth.
Marshawn Lynch can run over anyone. Russell Wilson can evade anyone. But if Schilling can’t manage to block effectively for the two then it’s going to be a long day watching plays breakdown before they really have time to develop.
