This followed a last-second win against Kansas City in Week 1 when Trevone Boykin completed a 37-yard touchdown pass. Pete Carroll takes every game seriously as he now is 26-17 straight-up and 28-14-1 ATS in preseason, and he is also 12-1 ATS against an opponent that is coming off a win of more than three points. Dallas defeated Miami 41-14 after blowing a lead and losing in its first game against Los Angeles. Jason Garrett is 9-14 straight-up and 7-15-1 ATS in exhibition play and the Cowboys are just 1-8 ATS after a win. Russell Wilson was 5-of-11 for 77 yards against the Vikings, and Boykin finished 10-of-20 for 127 yards. The Seahawks had a net total of 327 yards of offense and held Minnesota to 70 yards on the ground. Tony Romo made his preseason debut, and after three holding calls in the first five plays, Romo finished four-of-five for 49 yards. Dak Prescott was 12-of-15 for 199 yards. Seattle beat San Diego 16-15 in Week 3 last season while Dallas was losing 28-14 to Minnesota. The Seahawks have covered the number four of their last five Week 3 games while the Cowboys are 0-3 ATS in this spot. Play the Seahawks.
