The Dallas Cowboys seek their first playoff win since 2014.
Dallas (10-6) claimed the NFC East championship and finished the regular season in thrilling fashion with a narrow 36-35 win over the New York Giants.
The Cowboys rested most their key offensive starters in Week 17, including NFL rushing leader Ezekiel Elliott, but decided to keep quarterback Dak Prescott under center.
Prescott would lead Dallas with a season-high four touchdown passes on 27-of-44 completions for 387 passing yards.
Tight end Blake Jarwin had a breakout performance with seven receptions for 119 yards and three touchdowns.
Wide receiver Cole Beasley was the change of pace spark the Cowboys needed, catching six passes for 94 yards and a touchdown.
Dallas finished the regular season allowing the sixth fewest points in the NFL with (19.3 ppg).
The Seattle Seahawks (10-6) picked up a second straight win to end the regular season, taking down the Arizona Cardinals 27-24.
Russell Wilson had a quiet day against Arizona, completing 12-of-21 passes for 152 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Seattle's running attack of Chris Carson and Mike Davis controlled the game.
Carson finished with 19 carries for 122 yards and one touchdown, while Davis had seven rushes for 44 yards and a touchdown.
Carson ended the season strong by topping 100 yards rushing in each the final three games, and had five touchdowns in the final five games.
Seattle finished the regular season as the NFL's top rushing team averaging (160.0 ypg).
Seahawks vs Cowboys Spread
Dallas is giving Seattle 2.5 points in this playoff matchup.
Dallas and the playoffs tend to not mix well with just two wins over the past 20 years.
Meanwhile, Seattle has won eight of the 12 playoff games behind Wilson since 2012.
The Seahawks are also (2-0) against the spread and straight up verse Dallas over the past three seasons.
Take the Seahawks with the points.
Seahawks vs Cowboys Over/Under
The over/under is totaled at 43 points in this matchup.
Both times these teams have faced off over the past three seasons the total has gone under.
However, I expect Wilson and Prescott to both make some noise offensively this time around.
My final score prediction: Seattle Seahawks 27, Dallas Cowboys 24
