The Seahawks, currently 6-5, are aiming to bounce back after consecutive losses, while the Cowboys, standing at 8-3, seek to extend their three-game winning streak. This Thursday Night Football matchup is set to be a pivotal one, shaping the playoff landscape as teams enter the final month of the regular season.

The Seahawks, grappling for a wildcard spot in the NFC, suffered a Thanksgiving defeat at home against the San Francisco 49ers. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have showcased a robust season, securing the top wildcard spot and winning three consecutive games, including a Thanksgiving Day blowout against Washington.

In their Thanksgiving victory, the Cowboys’ DaRon Bland made history with five pick-sixes in a season, while Dak Prescott threw four touchdowns.

Dallas Dominance

The Cowboys have excelled throughout the season, with their only losses occurring on the road. Their home performance has been particularly impressive, averaging over 30 points per game, including three consecutive games with 40 or more points. Currently leading the league in scoring with 31.5 points per game, the Cowboys display offensive balance with both passing and rushing contributions.

Dak Prescott leads the passing attack, accumulating over 262 yards per game, complemented by Tony Pollard’s impactful rushing performance. The receiving core, led by CeeDee Lamb, has displayed remarkable balance, with multiple players contributing touchdowns.

Seattle’s Struggles

The Seahawks, once tied with the 49ers at the top of the NFC West, are now focused on fending off the Los Angeles Rams.
