Dallas has won seven of its last eight games, including a gritty performance last week while playing without Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys came from behind to win 36-35 in an otherwise meaningless game. It showed the potential of the offense when Dak Prescott is on his game and not throwing interceptions while the defense held New York to 298 total yards of offense. Prescott threw for 387 yards on 27-of-44 with four touchdowns and no picks. The defense is seventh in the league in yards allowed while allowing 20.2 points per game and the rush defense is fifth. Seattle is #16 in yards allowed and gives up 21.7 points per game. The Seahawks got the fifth seed in the NFC when Sebastian Janikowski nailed a 33-yard field goal on the final play to give his team a win in a game where the Seahawks were a 14-point favorite against one of the worst teams in the league. Seattle did get a big win over Kansas City the week before, but otherwise has feasted on some of the weaker teams in the NFL. The Seahawks are 6-2 at home and only 4-4 on the road while the Cowboys are 7-1 at home and in revenge after losing to the Seahawks 24-13 in September when Dallas was a different team than it is now. Seattle is 1-5 ATS its last six playoff games and the Cowboys have covered six of their last eight games overall and and six of their last seven versus NFC teams. Dallas is 17-8 UNDER its last 25 games and 5-2 UNDER its last seven playoff games. Also, the UNDER is 11-3 in the Cowboys' last 14 games when following a win. Look for Dallas to carry over the momentum from last week's come-from-behind win, so play the Cowboys and the UNDER.
