Cowboys vs. Seahawks final score: Russell Wilson wins NFC shootout, outshines gritty Dak Prescott performance

It wasn’t initially the shootout everyone was expecting to see, but it most certainly became one as the game rolled along between the Seattle Seahawks and the Dallas Cowboys en route to a 38-31 win by Seattle. For the most part, the Cowboys were doing well with containing the deep ball by the Seahawks, having made only two big mistakes in the first half and cleaning up one of them with an effort play by rookie second-round pick Trevon Diggs — who punched a would-be touchdown loose from D.K. Metcalf and forced a touchback. The other mistake was damaging though, allowing Tyler Lockett to score one of his three touchdowns on the day.

Lockett’s second was a punctuation mark on a second-quarter drive fueled by three defensive penalties against the Cowboys, marking yet another week in which Dallas had to attempt to overcome its own mistakes. His third ended the half to give the Seahawks distance and digging away from just a one-point lead. Cedrick Wilson got his digs in before the half, putting the teams neck and neck before Lockett reeled his career-best third touchdown

Things ratcheted up in a major way in the second half, with Dak Prescott throwing for more than 400 yards in his second consecutive game, lifting Wilson to a career day and getting big numbers from Michael Gallup. Not to be outdone, Russell Wilson continued his campaign for MVP, throwing for five touchdowns with a 130.7 passer rating. In the end, it was the shootout we were all promised, with the Seahawks narrowly escaping to keep their undefeated record intact.
