The Dallas Cowboys improved to 1-1 on the season after an incredible 40-39 victory over the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday. Dallas trailed 20-0 at the end of the 1st quarter and by a 39-24 margin with just 7:57 left in regulation, however, the Cowboys put together two quick TD drives to make it a one-possession game and after an outstanding onside kick, the Cowboys completed the comeback after making a 46-yard FG as time expired. Dallas outgained Atlanta by a 570-380 margin, however, did commit 3 turnovers in the victory. Leading the way for the Cowboys was QB Dak Prescott who completed 34 of 47 for 450 yards and a TD while also adding three rushing TD’s.
On the season, Dallas is averaging 28.5 ppg on 488.5 total yards per game (130.5 rushing yds/g; 358.0 passing yds/g). Offensively, Dallas has been led by QB Dak Prescott who has completed 68.6% of his passes for 716 yards & 2 TD. Prescott also has shown that he can be a force at the goal line with his 3 rushing TD’s. RB Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 185 yards & 2 TD’s on 44 carries (4.2 yds/carry) while also adding 11 receptions for 64 yards & a TD. The Cowboys have a bunch of talent on at the receiver positions and have been led by Amari Cooper (16 rec, 181 yards), CeeDee Lamb (11 rec, 165 yards), Michael Gallup (5 rec, 108 yards) and Dalton Schultz (10 rec, 99 yards).
Defensively, Dallas is allowing their opponents to average 29.5 ppg on 407.0 total yards per game (133.0 rushing yds/g; 274.0 passing yds/g).
The Seattle Seahawks improved to 2-0 on the season after defeating the New England Patriots, 35-30, this past Sunday night. In an exciting back-and-forth battle Seattle was able to take a 35-23 lead late in the 4th quarter and held on to win after an incredible goal line stand against a Cam Newton QB sneak as time expired. Seattle was outgained by New England by a 464-429 margin and committed one turnover in the victory. Leading the way for the Seahawks was QB Russell Wilson who completed 21 of 28 passes for 288 yards, 5 TD’s, and an INT.
On the season, Seattle is averaging 36.5 ppg on 424.0 total yards per game (119.0 rushing yds/g; 305.0 passing yds/g). Offensively, Seattle is led by QB Russell Wilson who has completed an incredible 82.5% of his passes for 610 yards, 9 TD’s and an INT. Wilson is also a major threat with his legs as he has 68 rushing yards and 2 TD’s on the season. Leading the Seattle backfield has been Chris Carson (23 att, 93 yards) & Carlos Hyde (12 att, 45 yards, TD). The top receiving threats for the Seahawks have been DK Metcalf (8 rec, 187 yards, 2 TD), Tyler Lockett (15 rec, 159 yards, TD), Chris Carson (9 rec, 81 yards, 3 TD), and David Moore (6 rec, 76 yards).

The Cowboys are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog, however, are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Seahawks are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite, however, just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Seattle is one of the better teams in all of the NFL and arguably have the best player in the NFL in Russell Wilson who has been unreal in his first two games this season. As dangerous as the Seattle offense can be, Dallas has some great weapons of their own and showed in their comeback victory against Atlanta that they can put up points in bunches. Seattle is the better overall team, however, their defense certainly has some question marks in the passing game and although you never know what to expect from the Cowboys, I think Dak Prescott and the offense do enough in this one to at worst, cover with the points. Good Luck.
