These 2014 Dallas Cowboys are a different bunch than what we’ve seen in quite some time. Take today’s 30-23 win in Seattle as proof. Dallas dominated Seattle much more than the final score would indicate.
You just don’t go into Seattle and win a football game nowadays. There is surely no way you can come from behind in the fourth quarter and win a game in that stadium. You certainly don’t win a game in such a hostile environment, after allowing a blocked punt to be returned for a touchdown, turning over a muffed punt at your own 14-yard line and later giving away a botched snap at your own 20-yard line. Those are recipes for a blowout.
Dallas made all the above-mentioned mistakes in this game, but the miscues only kept the final score closer than it should’ve been today. This game could’ve been a blowout. But it was the Cowboys who dominated the Seahawks on this day, piling up 401 total offensive yards, to Seattle’s 206 yards, and out-rushing Seattle by a 162-to-80 margin. Dallas showed confidence, resolve and determination, while beating the defending Super Bowl Champions in their house.
If you didn’t believe in this team before today, it might be time to get on the bandwagon, because there is definitely something different about the Dallas Cowboys this year.
