Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks NFL Predictions
Friday, September 14th, 2012By Jim Sanders
The Dallas Cowboys will look to start the season 2-0 for the first time in four years as they visit the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Cowboys are coming off a nice win on opening night against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants while Seattle lost a tough one at Arizona in Week 1. Here is a look at this game and the pick.
Cowboys -3, total 41.5
The oddsmakers seem to believe that last week’s win by the Cowboys was for real as they are now road favorites at Seattle. Tony Romo was excellent last week as he threw three touchdowns against the Giants. Kevin Ogletree was the fantasy football surprise of the week as he had two touchdowns and running back DeMarco Murray ran for 131 yards. The Cowboys have had 10 days to prepare for this game as they look to start the season 2-0 for the first time since 2008. "It's always a challenge to move on," Dallas head coach Jason Garrett said. "But we continue to preach it. It's a good philosophy for football players and it's a good philosophy for life. We're focused on Seattle."

Cowboys vs. Seahawks Notes
The Cowboys have dominated the Seahawks recently winning the last three regular season games by a combined score of 95-39. It should be noted though that all of those games were in Dallas. This is the first game for the Cowboys in Seattle since the 2007 playoffs when Romo dropped the snap on a potential game winning field goal. The Cowboys have lost their last two meetings in Seattle overall. The Seahawks have won eight of their last nine home openers and they are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. Looking at the total in this game, the Under is in the Cowboys last 4 road games but the Over is 6-1 in the Seahawks last 7 home games. In this series, the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Everyone seems to be on the Dallas bandwagon but it is only one week. I will look for the Seahawks to find a way to win this one at home so I will take Seattle plus the points.
