Week 3 Review: Seattle Seahawks Defeat the Dallas Cowboys

Another Sunday slate of NFL games is in the books, ladies and gentlemen. The Seattle Seahawks toppled the Dallas Cowboys, 38-31.

Russell Wilson continues his strong start to the season with five touchdowns to zero interceptions. Wilson made history this week by throwing the most touchdowns by a quarterback through the team’s first three games, with a total of 14. Seattle managed to start the season 3-0, even after allowing a 400 yard passer in each of their first three games.

Jamal Adams Injury

Arguably the best Seahawk defender, Jamal Adams was ruled out for the rest of the game after injuring his groin early in the first half. This is an injury on which to keep a close eye for an already-struggling Seattle defense. The injury did not seem to be long term, but those groin injuries can be nagging throughout the season. Hopefully, Adams can get right, and be available for Seattle’s next game against the Miami Dolphins.

Russell Wilson Makes Magic Happen

I said it once, and I will say it again: Russell Wilson is heading straight toward the league’s MVP award, and it doesn’t look like he will be slowing down anytime soon. Wilson followed up his five-touchdown performance last week with another one this week. It has been an insanely successful start for Wilson and the rest of the squad so far. D.K. Metcalf also continued his strong start to the 2020 campaign with another deep touchdown grab in this one. Metcalf should have had two deep touchdown grabs, but a premature celebration and a great effort play by Trevon Diggs stopped that from happening.

Overall, Wilson looks unstoppable to start the season. There may be no real race, or I may be speaking too soon, but Wilson looks like the MVP to me thus far.

Offense Over Defense

Both the Cowboys and Seahawks seem to have this motto as team when playing on Sunday. Dallas nearly had another miracle comeback in them, but came up just short. Like I said in my preview, this game was going to be a shootout. The final score ended with a combined 69 points.

Dak Prescott threw for nearly 500 yards in this contest, coming in at 472 passing yards against a beat-up Seattle secondary. The Cowboys can’t win like this consistently. They can’t wait until the second half to get their offense going with that kind of talent littered throughout their offense. Both offenses hit on all cylinders in the game, and the points came in bunches.

Look Ahead

The Seattle Seahawks will travel to the Sunshine State to take on the Miami Dolphins, while the Dallas Cowboys will host the Cleveland Browns. A more in-depth breakdown of the Seahawks’ Week 4 match-up will be covered in a separate piece.

Betting Results

Seattle covered the spread of -4.5 by winning 38-31, and the over hit with a total of 69 points.

This made me 4-0 when taking bets for the Seattle Seahawks.
