Seattle Seahawks Big Win

The Seahawks entered yesterday’s game, as underdogs, against the Dallas Cowboys.  They left the field as victors over the group otherwise known as “America’s Team.”

The Cowboys had just come off of a huge victory over the reigning Superbowl champions, the New York Giants.  Tony Romo led the offensive charge with three touchdown passes and only one interception.  The Cowboy’s defense effectively shutdown the powerful offensive attack of the Giants, allowing only one TD pass from Eli Manning and mediocre yardage from their running game.  But unlike the Giants, the Seahawks came prepared for their match up against the Cowboys in week 2.

The Seahawks came out guns blazing as their defense sparked a 10-0 jumpstart after a blocked punt was returned to the house.  Their defense continued to trifle all of the Cowboy’s offensive opportunities and frustrated their leader, Tony Romo.

In the second half, it was all about the Seahawks rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson and running back, Marshawn Lynch.  This dynamic duo effectively managed the clock by moving the chains down after down.  Russell calmly threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to tight end, Anthony McCoy, in the third quarter.  While Lynch finished out his 122-yard day with a touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

The Cowboys continue to disappoint as they have the talent to become a top-level team, but they proceed to have these unexplainable losses.  Whatever the case, they were not in sync on any level yesterday and the Seahawks took advantage.  Seahawk fans beware, their week 3 match up could be their toughest one yet, as they are set to face the Green Bay Packers.
