Seahawks Lose to Cowboys: A Look At Some Of The Numbers

The basic stats don't tell the whole story, but they're worth looking at.


Seahawks vs. Cowboys, NFL Scores: Seahawks Fall 23-13 in Big D

The Seattle Seahawks were hanging tough with the Dallas Cowboys for the first half of play at Cowboys Stadium, but the Cowboys took over in the second half. They scored 23 points before the Seahawks could respond, finding a possibility of a comeback too little too late as Dallas beat Seattle by the score of 23-13. 

Both offenses couldn't get much going in the first half, trading a pair of field goals between Dan Bailey and Steven Hauschka to a 6-6 halftime tie. The Cowboys looked to open it up in the third quarter when Tony Romo found Jason Witten for a 33 yard touchdown, followed by a six yard reception from Laurent Robinson to push the score to 20-6 early in the fourth. 

A Tarvaris Jackson interception would lead to a 42 yard Dan Bailey field goal a few minutes later, putting the Seahawks in a 23-6 hole with about 10 minutes left in the game. Jackson would lead a 10 play, 70 yard drive later in the quarter that concluded with a 4 yard Marshawn Lynch touchdown, though it wouldn't be enough for Seattle this Sunday. Jackson would finish the game with 17 for 30 for 221 yards, including three unfortunate interceptions and no touchdowns.

Tony Romo finished the day 19 for 31 for 279 yards and two touchdowns, while DeMarco Murray pounded his way for 139 yards on 22 carries. Dez Bryant added 4 catches for 76 yards. 

Marshawn Lynch was the sole bright spot for the Seahawks offense today, rushing for 135 yards on 23 carries including the aforementioned touchdown. Sidney Rice had three catches for 69 yards to lead the way in the air for Seattle, while Mike Williams added three catches of his own for 41 yards.  

With the loss the Seahawks move to 2-6 on the year. Full box score can be found here

Seahawks vs. Cowboys, In Game Update: A Touchdown is Scored, Cowboys Lead 13-6

After 30 minutes with only four field goals worth of scoring, a touchdown was actually put on the board by the Dallas Cowboys, who now lead the Seattle Seahawks 13-6 after three quarters at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. 

Tony Romo connected with Jason Witten for a 33 yard touchdown reception with 8:47 left in the third quarter to break the stalemate and gain the lead 13-6. The Cowboys charged down the field in only six plays after some nice field position gave them an opportunity, driving 64 yards in only three minutes. 

Tarvaris Jackson got it going a bit more at the start of the second half, finding Sidney Rice for a 43 yard bomb en route to completing 10 of 19 passes for 150 yards through three quarters, though also added a third quarter interception in the middle of a promising Seattle drive. Rice leads the Seahawks with 53 yards on only two receptions, while Marshawn Lynch has 91 yards on 17 carries so far.

Seahawks vs. Cowboys, Halftime Score: Dueling Field Goals Lead to 6-6 Halftime Tie

Another pair of second quarter field goals leaves the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys tied 6-6 heading into the locker room at the half at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

A 20 yard Dan Bailey field goal put the Cowboys up 6-3 early in the second quarter, while Steven Hauschka tied it up once again with about 5 minutes left in the half with a 32 yarder of his own. Tarvaris Jackson continues to struggle, completing only five of his 12 passes on the day for 59 yards, while Marshawn Lynch continues to be the lone bright spot of their offense, carrying the ball 11 times for 56 yards including a 19 yard run as well.

Tony Romo moved the ball well in the first half, completing 14 of his 21 passes for 206 yards. He also distributed his passes well to his receivers, led by Dez Bryant with 4 catches for 76 yards, though is also responsible for the game's only turnover with a fumble. 

Let's see who makes the better adjustments in the second half, or this one might go down to the wire.

Seahawks vs. Cowboys, In Game Update: Offenses Start Slow, Tied 3-3 After First Quarter

Not a whole lot of offensive action between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys in this first quarter down in big D, as a pair of field goals represents the only scoring thus far this afternoon, with a 3-3 tie through the first quarter at Cowboys Stadium. 

Both teams got going with some long drives, but couldn't get into the end zone in the first 15 minutes. A 20 yard Dan Bailey field goal gave the Cowboys the lead early, though Steven Hauschka tied it up with about four minutes left in the period with a beautiful 45 yarder of his own. Tarvaris Jackson couldn't get much of anything going in the first quarter though, going only 3 for 6 for 23 yards, though Marshawn Lynch is off to a decent start, carrying the ball five times for 24 yards, including a nine yard burst. 

It's looking like it's going to be a grind of a game, so get comfy, and get your popcorn ready.

Seahawks Vs Cowboys: Mike Williams Expected to Play Sunday

Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams is expected to play on Sunday after being a late scratch last week. Williams aggravated a hamstring injury during pre-game warmups prior to the Bengals game. This week, he was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but practiced fully on Friday. 

Williams has only nine catches this season in five starts after catching 65 passes for 751 yards last season in 13 games. He's yet to get on the same page with either Tarvaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst and will be looking to get that started on Sunday. Williams doesn't get a ton of separation but thrives on back shoulder throws and using his big frame to make the difficult catches. He's got the potential to be a beast in the the redzone so his return could be helpful for the Seahawks on Sunday. 

Also on the Seahawks WR front, Deon Butler is close to returning from the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a broken leg suffered last season. Butler's roster spot is definitely in question - the Seahawks are deep at receiver and Butler may not have a role on this team. Per Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have until Tuesday to put him on the active roster.

Seahawks Vs Cowboys Injury Update: Tarvaris Jackson Probable; Alan Branch, Cameron Morrah Questionable

The biggest question of the day for Seahawks fans hinged on the status of Tarvaris Jackson and his strained pectoral. Jackson was hurt in Week Five against the Giants, missed the bye week and Week Seven against the Browns, and played two and a half quarters last week against the Bengals. His pec is far from fully healed though, and after practicing on Wednesday fully this week, he was limited on Thursday with shoulder pain related to that injury. The good news for Seahawks fans is that he practiced again fully on Friday, but it becomes a waiting game as to whether his shoulder pain will flare up again or whether he'll suffer a setback between now and Sunday.

Pete Carroll pointed out after practice that they're just going to have to wait and see, and Jackson will be a game-time decision. "I don't know until we get there. We're going to keep fingers crossed because we'd love to have him and he'd love to play. If it's even close, he's going to tell me can. So we've just got to evaluate it as we go and we'll watch him throw in pregame (warm-ups) to make sure it's right."

"Tarvaris does not feel great. He's barely making it through practice," Pete Carroll noted. "But he did. We go into the weekend thinking he's got a chance to play for us."

Also injured for the Seahawks are Cameron Morrah, Alan Branch, and David Vobora, all listed as questionable. Sidney Rice is on the probable list, but the Carroll did announce today that he'll be a go on Sunday along with Mike Williams, and Kam Chancellor

Here is the official injury reports for both teams for Friday:


Questionable - TE Cameron Morrah (toe/knee), DT Alan Branch (knee/hip), LB David Vobora (calf)

Probable - WR Sidney Rice (foot), WR Mike Williams (hamstring), QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral), LB Leroy Hill (knee), SS Kam Chancellor (knee)


Out - CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring), RB Felix Jones (ankle)

Doubtful - LB Sean Lee (wrist)

Questionable - P Matt McBriar (foot), OG Kyle Kosier (foot)

Probable - QB Tony Romo (ribs)
