Unfortunately for QB Tony Romo, there really aren’t a lot of fond memories that he has of playing against the Seattle Seahawks. The lasting memory that he’ll have is sitting down on the field at Qwest Field after botching the snap for what could have been the game-winning field goal in the first round of the playoffs. However, what we need to remember is that Romo’s Dallas Cowboys have destroyed the NFL odds against these Seahawks in their history.
These two teams have faced each other 14 times all-time. The Cowboys have won nine of these games, and they are a remarkable 10-4 ATS in those games.
The Seahawks just haven’t been able to get anything going offensively. They have scored just a total of 39 points in three games since beating the Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs in January 2007. All-time, Seattle is averaging just 17.2 PPG against the Cowboys, and it is allowing a tremendous 26.4 PPG.
All told, Romo really has had a heck of a career against the Seahawks. He has played them three times in the regular season in his career, and beyond a 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS record as a starter, he has thrown for 866 yards and eight TDs against just one pick.
In fact, Romo has played better against the NFC West than any division in his career. He has faced the foursome of teams a total of 10 times, and in those 10 games, Dallas’ quarterback has thrown for 2,985 yards and 24 scores versus just two INTs.
This is going to be Dallas’ fourth trip to CenturyLink Field since it opened in 2002. The Cowboys have taken two victories SU and all three decisions from an ATS standpoint.
The Cowboys are going to have a long week of preparation for this game after beating the New York Giants on the first Wednesday night of the season. They opened up at -2.5 against the Seahawks, and they’ll hope that their domination of their Week 2 adversaries continues this week.
