NFL Week 16 Predictions: Seahawks vs. Cowboys to be High-Scoring? 12/22/17

NFL Week 16 Predictions: Seahawks vs. Cowboys to be High-Scoring? 12/22/17

For the second straight week, the Cowboys (8-6) face an opponent with the exact same mindset: playoff mode.

The Dallas Cowboys have won three games in a row keeping their playoff hopes alive but have a tough test ahead against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16. Ezekiel Elliott is one of (if not) the best running back in football, and he will have an enormous effect on the Cowboys offense.

This will not be your usual matchup between these two NFC teams, both clubs have lost several players to injury so things are bound to get interesting on Sunday.

"He definitely going to have fresh legs", Bennett said on Thursday.

"They're a terrific team", the Seahawks coach said. Now that he's back, and apparently in much better shape, the Cowboys offense could get the kick in the trousers it needs. I think this defense will hang in there enough against Russell Wilson to make the necessary stops late in the game. "I think we can use him as much as we want to". Dak Prescott running will be a factor as well as the defense keys even more on Zeke.

But Thursday, the mayor and the many city residents who wanted to the statues to go were jubilant. So, we're here for social justice and liberation. "We want this city to be all that it can be".

OUR PREDICTION: The Seahawks allowed over 40 points last week in an ugly loss to the Rams and they remain beat-up defensively. In a game that seemingly pits two teams heading in opposite directions against one another, there will be a lot of big plays and hard hits when Sunday rolls around.

While Leonard Fournette and Todd Gurley are outstanding running backs that took advantage of their opportunities against Seattle, a heathy, rested Elliott is not what the Seahawks wanted to see with their season on the line.

Specifically, because the Seahawks will be missing safety Kam Chancellor, cornerback Richard Sherman, and pass rusher Cliff Avril.

When Elliott is in the backfield for the Cowboys, opponents have to play with an understanding that any time he touches the ball he is a threat for an explosive play. Wilson and back-breaking plays will be too much: Seattle 28-20. I love the over in what should be a fun game. The Seahawks employ the best player in this matchup, and his name is Russell Wilson. The Cowboys' roster should be in especially good shape with Elliott returning to the lineup, and I expect him to play well. He's going to make big plays in this game - there's just no doubt in my mind. Getting Prescott on the move and to the edges of the defense allows the Cowboys' pass catchers to have a schematic leverage advantage against their defenders, and to get the ball on the run to make plays after the catch. He's going to throw for 300 and rush for a touchdown on top of that. He re-entered Cowboys headquarters at the Star in Frisco, Texas, on Monday for meetings and the team run. I think Zeke can help them get to 31 points, and the defense will find a way to hold Wilson. Smith, who hyperextended a knee in the Cowboys' win over Oakland, was not expected to practice on Wednesday.
