82% of NFL RUSH Pick Em users have picked the Cowboys to beat the Seahawks in Week 2, but that just means a lot of wrong people on Sunday. I know what you are going to say: “The Cowboys played great in their opener, what’s up with that?” That’s absolutely true. Cowboys QB Tony Romo stepped up and their defense did pretty well. But that was a game in which they were pumped to play against the defending Super Bowl champions. Expect to see a letdown in focus when they visit the Seahawks.
That is only half the story, because the new and improved Seahawks have all the keys to upsetting the Cowboys. New QB Russell Wilson can run and pass, which can cause a lot of problems for a defense that likes to blitz as much as the Cowboys do. Then there’s RB Marshawn Lynch, who can go BEASTMODE in the blink of an eye. Throw in a surprisingly good defense, and this team has all they need on the field. However, the single biggest reason the Seahawks will win is the 12th Man. That crowd is the craziest, loudest group of fans in the NFL. They have been known to cause earthquakes with their cheering.
Hey Cowboys! You’re on Upset Alert!
