The Seahawks get the 24-13 win over the Cowboys in their Week 3 home opener. With so much talk of Earl Thomas continuing as he sat out a couple days of practice this past week, he showed up big in a game against a team that was the talk of the offseason as a potential destination for him. Thomas picked off Dak Prescott early on in the game and then again in the fourth quarter to essentially seal the victory for Seattle.
After all of the offseason talk about running the ball and how Chris Carson would be the lead back, the Seahawks certainly made good on that promise with 32 attempts going to Chris Carson alone as he eclipsed 100 yards. 39 carries in total on the ground as Russell Wilson was 16 of 26 with two touchdown passes and 192 yards through the air.
Even with some pieces missing from their offensive line, the Cowboys still have a solid unit and the Seattle defensive line was able to sack Prescott five times, with Jarran Reed getting two and Frank Clark getting his third sack in three games. Next up, the Seahawks will head down to Arizona and we'll preview the game and break down more of Sunday's win coming up on Episode 220 this week.
