Cowboys offense vs. Seahawks defense
The Cowboys’ offense has, unfortunately, been hot. Yes, it’s been against garbage defenses, but it’s still been hot.
Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb enjoyed an impressive stretch, one that lasted for three games. He eclipsed 150 receiving yards from Week 8 to Week 10. He has cooled off though as of late.
Still, CeeDee is easily the Cowboys’ best pass catcher.
He’s only collected 91 yards off of 18 targets over the past two games. Will he go back to being an elite threat or is he going to stay in his slump? Well, that depends on the Seahawks' defensive backfield.
The Seahawks have gone from the 'Legion of Boom' to the 'Legion of Whom?' to the 'Legion of Spoon'. Rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon is good at his job. If it weren’t for Jalen Carter being the destructive ball of muscle he is, the Hawks' first-year cornerback would probably win Defensive Rookie of the Year.
On the other side of the field will be Riq Woolen, who is also really good at his job. We won't say they’ll nullify the Cowboys’ wide receivers, but they should be able to stymie some production.
If the Seahawks can keep the Cowboys’ passing game in check, they’ll be in pretty good shape. It’s a tough task, but not an impossible one. If they make the Cowboys rely on running the ball, that’s going to be huge for them.
