    Kris Richard, the Cowboys X-Factor Against the Seahawks

    In the NFL, wins are hard to come by. That is why teams do their due diligence each and every week to try to come up with some advantage, however slight. This week, the may have the biggest advantage they could possibly hope for over their opponent, the , and he goes by the name of .

    The hiring of Kris Richard may have been Dallas' biggest move. We have already seen in the first couple of games of the the impact he's had on the Cowboys . The entire defensive unit has been playing possessed and has pretty much dominated their opponents. I believe Richard deserves the majority of the credit.

    But this week is different. The Dallas Cowboys travel to Seattle for a Sunday afternoon game against the Seahawks, who are a tough opponent when playing at home. hasn't always been kind to the Cowboys when playing on the road in Seattle.

    In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if doesn't still have nightmares about playing in Seattle. A mishandled snap on a routine 19 yard field goal attempt ended up costing the Cowboys a playoff victory in 2007. Then he sustained the back that would ultimately end his career in a meaningless game against the Seahawks in 2016.

    To say history hasn't been kind to the Cowboys in Seattle would probably be an understatement. But still, that's where they're heading for this Week 3 matchup.

    Luckily, I believe the Dallas Cowboys have an ace in the hole in 2018. I think their new Coordinator and , Kris Richard, is going to be the X-Factor. Who could give you more inside information than someone who spent the last eight years with Seattle as both a coach and a player than Richard?

    Kris Richard should know just about all of the ins and outs about the Seattle Seahawks, especially on the defensive side of the ball since he served as their the previous two seasons before joining the Cowboys. But, his knowledge of their could prove to be invaluable as well.

    Richard has seen the Seahawks offense and on a daily basis in practice firsthand. He should have a very good understanding of not only their tendencies, but what types of plays they run out of different formations. It should be just like having a spy within their own huddle.

    Now, having inside information is one thing, but executing the is something different entirely. Kris Richard can possibly predict with high probability exactly what the Seahawks plan on doing, but it falls on the Cowboys players as to execute the game plan.

    In the end, this game will ultimately come down to which team executes better on the field Sunday afternoon. The Dallas Cowboys may have an X-Factor in Kris Richard, but he's not the one suiting up against the Seahawks. It all falls on the player's shoulders, as it always has.

    Do you think Kris Richard can be the Cowboys X-Factor against the Seahawks?
