It was only a matter of luck (and the Falcons’ ignorance to the onside kick rules) that gave the Dallas Cowboys their first win in 2020, and if they expect to earn their second victory this season then they better figure out a way to overcome all those injuries they are dealing with.
Dallas passed on free-agent safety Jamal Adams and the Seattle Seahawks said Yes Please and he has made all the difference for a team that was already powerful on offense thanks to their future Hall of Fame QB Russell Wilson and his favorite talented target DK Metcalf.
These two NFC rivals have played each other a total of 20 times (including 2 postseason games), with the Seahawks winning 9 of those games and the Cowboys winning 11 games.
Can the Cowboys Overcome Injuries on Both Sides of the Ball?
Some key injuries to the Dallas Cowboys early in the season have made them questionable on both sides of the ball, especially in terms of depth, which hampers their starters from getting breathers during the games.
On offense, the Cowboys front line must play without OTs Mitch Hyatt (knee), La’el Collings (hip), Cameron Irving (knee – MCL), and with OT Tyron Smith (neck) currently listed as questionable.
On the other side of the ball, LBs Sean Lee (sports hernia) and Leighton Vander Esch (collarbone) are huge losses for the season, and right now CB Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) and DE Demarcus Lawrence (knee) are both listed as questionable.

Can Jamal Adams Be the Difference Maker in Seattle?
The former Jets safety Jamal Adams was a free agent and ironically enough, the Dallas Cowboys passed on him and the Seattle Seahawks said heck, yeah, and now he has become one of the main reasons for their early success in 2020.
In just two games roaming the Seahawks’ secondary, Adams has already posted 2 sacks and 4 quarterback hits, plus 22 total tackles with 3 of those for a loss – not bad numbers for a guy who was supposed to be “bored” in Seattle.
Adams will be a pain in Dak Prescott’s passing game, and he will be a factor slowing down Zeke Elliott, so the regret that Jerry Jones will feel on Sunday will be very real as Adams becomes the difference-maker in this one.
Cowboys Key Player: (DE) Demarcus Lawrence
Cowboys veteran defensive end Demarcus Lawrence is key to Dallas’ pass rush and their ability to stop the run game, but for this trip to Seattle, Lawrence is currently listed as questionable due to a knee injury that he suffered in during the first half of the Falcons game in Week 2.
Last season, Lawrence had 5 sacks and 16 quarterback hits, and so far in his first two games of 2020, he has zero of either and just 3 solo tackles, so his game has to improve if the Cowboys expect to win on Sunday and beyond.
The Seahawks have an effective passing attack, so Lawrence has to neutralize it from the left side, but that would require the use of his knee, and so far that question remains unanswered until most likely game time.

Seahawks Key Player: (TE) Greg Olson
In his fourteenth season (first in Seattle), tight end Greg Olson has had some wonderful NFL seasons, but most of them have unfortunately been before 2017 when his recurring foot injury wasn’t an issue.
In Week 1, Olson caught four passes for 24 yards and a touchdown, giving hope that QB Wilson now has a solid target who is brave enough to run patterns across the middle of the field and large enough to survive that.
Olson came up blank against the Patriots in Week 2, and that can’t happen in Week 3 against the Cowboys, where Wilson and he should be able to make easy work of their injury-laden linebacker corps.
