Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks: Live Score, Analysis for NFL Week 2
A fumble on a kick return, a blocked punt returned for a touchdown and an interception by Tony Romo have accounted for the turnovers.
Well there you have it folks, the Cowboys are officially 1-1 on the season after a depressing 27-7 loss to the Seahawks.
Dallas will travel home to face the Bucs next week in their home opener as they will try to get back on a winning track.
As we march toward the two minute warning, if the Sehawks hold on to win, they will improve their record to 1-1. With the loss, the Cowboys will match Seattle's record.
Next week Dallas travel's home for their first home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Seattle stays home for a Monday night contest against Green Bay.
I asked a question about my man Felix Jones before the game and if he would show up.
Well he had a fumble to start the game and the team seemed to follow his leadership.
Jones had one carry for one yard, two catches for four yards and five kick returns for 109 yards. His biggest impact was on special teams, for good and bad, but he had little to not impact when he was given the ball either by rush or pass.
The offensive line did an ok job. I wouldn't give them a failing grade.
But the defensive line is a different story as they were physically dominated up front and gave up almost 200 total yards in the second half.
Lynch had 95 rushing yards in the second half for a healthy 6.8 yards per carry and Seattle scored 14 points in third and fourth combined.
A lot of questions still lingering for this Cowboys unit.
Is it to early to call for soul searching this early in the season?
The Cowboys were physically dominated in this game as evidenced by the score. Russell Wilson has only been sacked once and that was on a blown block as linebacker Anthony Spencer came free off the corner.
Dallas has injuries all around as Gerald Sensabaugh and Barry Church are out. Jay Ratliff didn't make the trip and Sean Lee got his bell rung by Golden Tate.
Spencer went down with an injury and Witten doesn't seem to be himself.
After playing so well in week, it seems that Dallas is back to the drawing board after playing so bad against Seattle. They were not a cohesive unit this Sunday and the 27-7 score indicates that.
The Seahawks are just about coasting to victory.
Witten just dropped another pass and Romo was just sacked by Seattle defensive end Jason Jones.
Just as a side note, the Cowboys offense only has three first downs in the second half.
Seattle up by, 27-7.
Marshawn Lynch just scored on a three yard run.
The Seahawks are up 27-7 with 7:57 minutes left in the fourth quarter.
For any Cowboys fans out there, I hope you have some cushion in your knees because your prayers will be needed for the team to pull out this victory.
On that last drive, the Seahawks held the ball for 7:35 seconds, went 88 yards on 12 plays.
Seattle is now up by three touchdowns.
Seattle has a first and goal on the Cowboys five yard line with 8:22 left in the 4th quarter.
The Cowboys defense looks tired as they are being dominated and out played right now.
If the Seahawks score, Dallas' chances of making a comeback are about as slim as Mobb Deep getting back together.
Seattle has a slow, methodical drive going right now as they are now deep in Cowboy territory.
Running back Marshawn Lynch has over 100 rushing yards and now Seattle has a 1st and ten on Dallas' 17 yard line.
Seahawks driving with 9:35 seconds in the 4th quarter.
Holy snikes Sean Lee just got his bell rung.
Seahawks receiver Golden Tate just got a peel back block on Lee after Russell Wilson took off running from the pocket.
There was a flag on the play but it turned out to be on Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter for a personal foul injury for pushing Wilson out of bounds.
An egregious mistake by the replacement refs after Lee was rocked by Tate.
Seattle has the ball on the Cowboys 27 yard line with 13:32 seconds left in the 4th quarter.
It's second down after a false start penalty but this is when they can start to eat time away from the clock.
Dallas is getting lost in the crowd noise and Seattle's momentum.
They have been forced to punt with just 40 seconds left in the third quarter.
Seattle now has the chance to break Dallas' will with another touchdown as they still lead 20-7.
Seattle seems to be a pretty disciplined team when it comes to tackles and being physical.
Running back Felix Jones was just punished by linebacker K.J. Wright.
Romo found Jones in the flat and after he attempted to wiggle his way out of Wright's arms, he was simply wrestled to the ground.
Oh by the way, offensive linemen Tyron Smith was just flagged for a false start.
So now its time for Dallas to respond as time continues to tick away.
The second half can't be blamed on turnovers as they will have their chances to make up for their mistakes.
What's been the most surprising part of the contest to me is how physical the Seahawks defense has been. They are putting the wood to the Cowboys receivers and while the defense has been on the field for awhile, they aren't breaking.
The Cowboys are officially on the ropes. The Seahawks are now up by 13 after scoring a touchdown.
After Lynch's 36 yard run, Wilson found tight end Anthony McCoy for a 22 yard touchdown down the seam.
The Cowboys didn't seem to know what was going and they paid the price for their confusion.

Beast Mode, or Marshawn Lynch as his government suggests, just broke for a 36 yard scamper to place Seattle deep within the Cowboys territory.
With a little over five minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Seattle is driving...
The Seahawks Kam Chancellor has been all over the field for Seattle.
On third down and three, Romo dropped back to pass and found Dez Bryant. Before he could turn to run, Chancellor was on him to stop him from crossing the first down marker.
Dallas has been forced to punt.
BTW: Chancellor has five total tackles and four on his own.
Dallas has the ball, with 12 minutes left on the clock, on the Seahawks 20 yards line and its second and ten.
The Cowboys forced Seattle to punt and the would be gassed Seahawks defense is back on the field.
The Seahawks will start the second half with the ball and, I imagine, will try to add to their six point lead.
But how will the Cowboys respond after doing such a great job of shooting themselves in the foot to start the game?
As Dallas heads into halftime reminiscing on lost opportunities, lets take a look at a few stats that should give them hope of a second half comeback.
Dallas has 11 first down to Seattle's 5.
Cowboys have held the ball for 16:18 seconds compared to 13:42 seconds for Seattle.
Dallas has 211 total yards to the Seahawks 118.
Even on penalties, Seattle has four for 30 yards and the Cowboys only have one.
So there is no reason for the Cowboys to have a points deficit in this game.
Look for a different Cowboys team in the second half.
So on third and three, the Cowboys failed to convert and are forced to punt it away.
Only 35 second remain on the clock and going into halftime, Dallas has to know that the Seahawks lead is their own doing.
Three turnovers led to ten points for Seattle while the Cowboys only have seven points to show for their dominating performance. Well, at least on paper.
Seattle will head to the locker room with a 13-7 lead.
Dallas will try to score before the halftime horn sounds.
