Cowboys hold off Seahawks to advance to divisional round

Cowboys hold off Seahawks to advance to divisional round

At least the Cowboys' offense was held down by Seattle's defense, limiting Dallas to a 3-0 lead. On the very next play, Wilson targeted Tyler Lockett, and the pair's flawless chemistry produced again for a 40-yard connection that put the Seahawks in the red zone. Oh, and why were the Seahawks going for two?

Garrett added to a news conference: "I don't want to get into too many details, but it was a significant injury to his lower leg".

But the missing kicker left the Seahawks no good options on an onside kick with 1:18 remaining. Breaking down in a hurry and taking a great angle to Lockett, Thomas made the play that forced the Seahawks to drive a long field for three points. Seattle's front seven is capable of wrecking a game with their speed and tenacity, both things the Cowboys matched with their offensive line and tight ends in an incredibly physically game.

So, when players emerged for the second half, it was rookie punter Michael Dickson practicing a few field goals out of the hold of quarterback Russell Wilson - Dickson is usually the holder for Janikowski's field goals. How the Cowboys responded from losing an important locker room presence could have decided the game, and fortunately the defense was ready.

As Lockett reversed field on the punt return, Thomas was the only Cowboy standing between him and a big return.

The 2-point conversion was actually Seattle's second of the half, as they also made one in the third quarter to take a 14-10 lead. K.J. Wright intercepted Dak Prescott in the end zone, giving Seattle the ball back with a chance to get back in it. Prescott scored on the next play. The game will be Saturday night with a 7:15 p.m.
