The Cowboys will roll into Seattle in less than 48 hours, as they face the Seahawks in one of the best matchups of the young season. Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy spoke in a radio spot about the two quarterbacks in the game, and had nothing but praise for both Dak Prescott and Russell Wilson. Speaking of Wilson, the Cowboys must pressure the star Seattle quarterback if they want to have any hopes of slowing the MVP candidate.
Injuries in the secondary won’t help the Cowboys cause, as cornerback Chidobe Awuzie was ruled out this week, joining Anthony Brown who was placed on the IR a week ago. Seattle’s secondary is also under pressure, as they face the explosive Dallas offense that features standout rookie CeeDee Lamb. Lamb has had an excellent start to his career, working primarily out of the slot, and the Seahawks have been the worst team at defending the slot through two games. The Dallas native, Jamal Adams, has talked the talked, but we’ll see if he walks the walk against his once potential trade suitor.
Long-time Cowboys writer Mickey Spagnola breaks down what he believes to be the key for the Cowboys in their showdown in Seattle. The key is the Dallas pass rush, and the importance of that aspect of the game is immense, as Spagnola notes.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy appeared on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Thursday. Our own K.D. Drummond reveals the most relevant quotes from the interview, including McCarthy’s high-praise for his signal caller, Dak Prescott.

Last Sunday CeeDee Lamb became just the twelfth rookie in Cowboys history to reach the 100 yard mark in a game. While it was a special moment for the talented rook, there are plenty of games like this ahead for the uber-talented Lamb.

Missing Leighton Vander Esch and Sean Lee to injury meant that the Cowboys needed a linebacker to step up and fill the massive void, and veteran Joe Thomas has done just that. Thomas excelled in his lone start this year, and talked to the media about his expanded role and the upcoming matchup with Seattle.
The biggest surprise so far for the Cowboys has been Aldon Smith. Well, it might not be the biggest surprise for fans who followed Smith’s off-season hype, but Smith’s hot start after missing five seasons is impressive any way you look at it.
NFL Live analysts Marcus Spears and Mina Kimes discuss the Cowboys game against the Seahawks, and both think that Seattle, and Russell Wilson, might just have too much firepower for a banged up Cowboys defense to stop.
