The Seahawks play the Cowboys somewhere in Texas on Saturday. Here is what to see and how to watch the Wild Card matchup.
The Seahawks don’t just feel lucky to be in the playoffs. With a few plays that went a different way, Seattle could have won 12 games this season. Seattle is a good team. But are they good enough to beat the Cowboys on the road to start the playoffs?
Dallas is a lot like Seattle. The teams, not the cities. The Cowboys want to run the ball a lot and rely on a young defense to win games. So do the Seahawks. But Seattle has the better quarterback in Russell Wilson. Wilson has won a Super Bowl. Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott has not.
Sure, Dallas does have home-field advantage for the Wild Card game. But did you know that historically speaking, home teams have won only about 60 percent of the time in Wild Card games. Seattle winning on Saturday is not out of the question simply because they have to travel to Dallas.
Plus, Wilson normally either keeps his team in important games or brings them back to make it close. Most likely, Saturday will be a close game and not easy for those with weak hearts. Or even those with strong ones.
