Seattle -7 over Dallas
8:00 PM EST. Cowboys coach, Mike McCarthy, despises the preseason. He’d rather not bother, as these games are for the “young guys.” Well, it didn’t happen in a meaningless game, McCarthy’s biggest fear happened this week in practice, as All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith tore his left hamstring. He needs surgery and will be out until December. This offensive line was supposed to be the anchor of these Cowboys and the last line of defense for Dak Prescott. Now his #1 protector is out for months. Why Smith, who has a history of injuries was even out there is a legitimate question, but he's going down will have McCarthy playing it even safer tonight. All of the Cowboys starters will sit.
The Seahawks are still auditioning many players for many jobs, but the QB battle is the most fierce, with Drew Lock and Geno Smith facing off. Lock missed the ‘Hawks preseason game last week, a 27-11 loss to Chicago, and will likely be chomping at the bit to get back out there and prove himself. Pete Carroll was happy with how Lock looked in practice and said that, “the plan has been adjusted,” Lock will "play a lot" in Dallas. With the Seahawks still auditioning and the Cowboys shutting it down, these points are a lot easier to swallow.
