It's amazing how fast this preseason has flown by. We are already in the final week before the regular season starts. The Dallas Cowboys have one more opponent to face for their last game. Will the Seattle Seahawks Prevail in this preseason finale? Or will the Cowboys have another big game?
One thing we can look forward to is starters. The Seahawks have confirmed that Quarterback Drew Lock will be playing a couple of snaps this game and perhaps a full drive. Their backup running back Kenneth Walker is out due to injury so that opens up more room on the roaster for starting running backs to play.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys will have no starters play. Players like Ezekiel Elliott will not be playing in any preseason game. Dak Prescott will also be absent from the field for the Cowboys. This game seems to be a “Backup vs Starter” type matchup.
Last game against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Cowboys managed to score 32 points thanks to KeVontae Turpin. Turpin scored two touchdowns from punt/kick returns that game, but will that success carry into this game? It's hard to tell so early in his career. He showed off some incredible talent and hopefully, it keeps up.
With that said, the score before halftime should look something like 17-7, Seattle leads. This is mostly because we will be seeing a lot of starters early on in the game from the Seahawks and none from the Cowboys.
Within this game, we should see Turpin put up some good yardage from his famous punt and kick returns. Later in the game, the Seahawks will start pulling their starters out which will allow the Cowboys to make a comeback.
In my Seahawks vs Cowboys game preview that I published a couple of weeks ago the idea was that the final score would be low. Now that the Seahawks will be playing starters, and the Cowboys have gotten a bit better on offense we should see a final score around 24-17, Seahawks win.
The Cowboys should still be focusing on getting their offense in better condition while trying hard to avoid any injuries. They must remember that this is still a preseason game, and the only important trait is to develop their offense and keep their players healthy.
