Seahawks at Cowboys: 5 takeaways from Seattle’s 13-12 win

1 of 5

It wasn’t pretty, but the Seattle Seahawks did what they had to do. The went on the road and defeated the Dallas Cowboys in an ugly 13-12 defensive showdown. The win gets the Seahawks back to .500 with a 4-4 record.

Now the Seahawks get a week off. Next week is their bye week, and they need. There is a lot of work to do before the team hosts are Arizona Cardinals in two weeks.

Before the Seahawks check out for their week of rest, lets get to my takeaways from today’s win.

The offense doesn’t work unless Wilson plays well

Russell Wilson did not have a good game. He was off target too much, and made some questionable decisions throughout the game.

When Wilson is having an off-day, this offense grinds to a halt. With the offensive line being such a mess, the rest of the unit lacks the ability to pick up their QB.

Marshawn Lynch is still great. He grinds out yards better than any other back in the NFL. All it takes is one false start or missed block on a run play and the Seahawks have to throw the ball to sustain drives.

Seattle’s offense only works when Wilson is efficient. He wasn’t efficient for most of this game, and points were hard to find as a result.
