They were also one of the hottest teams at the end of the regular season. Seatt;e won six of their last seven games, which included wins over the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs.
Russell Wilson has been great for the Seahawks this season. He’s completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 3,448 yards, 35 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He didn’t have to carry the offense this season like he has done in the past, thanks to a consistent running game led by Chris Carson, who rushed for 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns.
Seattle has also played well defensively this season and will go into this game with a lot of confidence because they defeated the Cowboys during the regular season.

The Cowboys also ended the season on a high note. Dallas beat the rival New York Giants with a last second touchdown in their last game. The fact that they got the job done without Ezekiel Elliott, who was given the day off, should make them feel good about their chances heading into the playoffs.
Dak Prescott took a lot of flak earlier in the season but he once again showed why Jerry Jones has a lot of confidence in him. He finished the regular season completing 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,885 yards, 22 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

The Cowboys are favored to win this game by 2.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 43.5.
Seattle will be a tough opponent, but the Cowboys are playing at a very high level right now and they should be able to get the win. Take Dallas -2.5 and the under in this game.
