Dallas and Seattle finished the regular season ranked second and fourth, respectively, in the NFC in fewest points allowed per game, and, unsurprisingly, the game was a defensive battle. The Cowboys’ defense held the Seahawks’ league-best rushing attack to just 73 yards on 24 carries.
The first NFC Wild-Card game of the weekend is going to be an unlikely showdown between the Cowboys and Seahawks. Two months ago, it didn’t look like either of these teams were going to get anywhere near the playoffs and that’s because the Cowboys were sitting at 3-5 and the Seahawks were 4-4.
The playoff win by the Cowboys (11-6) was the first for Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott on their second try after losing a divisional game as rookies two years ago. Dallas will play either New Orleans or the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round next weekend.

As Dak Prescott goes, so go the Cowboys. Zeke is all-time great. Dak is the leader, the gamer, the play-maker.
