High off a resounding Week 1 victory, the Dallas Cowboys face the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field
The game begins at 4:05 p.m. EDT and will be shown by Fox, or you can watch a live stream online by purchasing NFL Sunday Ticket Max.
Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree lit up the Giants secondary for eight receptions and 114 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.
Quarterback Tony Romo played so well last week the Dallas Cowboys are already talking about extending his contract beyond the 2013 season. Romo went 22-for-29 for 307 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys 24-17 win over the New York Giants.
Dallas receiver Kevin Ogletree took advantage of the Giants' weak secondary, and made eight receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns, while running back DeMarco Murray ran for 131 yards on 20 carries, including a 48-yard scamper down the right sideline.
The Cowboys finished the game strong by scoring on three of their final four drives, much unlike the team that squandered several leads late last season.
Seattle's second half did not go nearly as well.
The Seahawks held a 16-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb put together a late scoring drive off the bench and the Cardinals prevailed 20-16.
Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson made two turnovers early and settled down late, but failed to connect on several red zone passes on the team's final drive. Wilson went 18-for-34 for 153 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Despite a promising young defense that allowed only 253 yards, the Seahawks allowed Kolb to march down the field on a 66-yard drive that resulted in a six-yard touchdown reception by receiver Andre Roberts late in the fourth quarter.
Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch ran 21 times for 85 yards, but didn't reach the end zone.
On Sunday, the Seahawks could miss tight end Zach Miller and offensive tackle Russell Okung, who are listed as questionable.
Dallas cornerback Mike Jenkins will make his 2012 debut, as he was rehabbing from shoulder surgery and missed all of training camp and the preseason.
Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff and center Phil Costa have been ruled out for action Sunday.
Betting Odds: Dallas is favored by 3 points.
Prediction: Dallas fielded a complete offense against the typically stout Giants defense, while Seattle showed signs of failing to play all four quarters. If Romo continues his strong play, Dallas should win handily. Still, Wilson has shown he can create a comeback out of nowhere.
Predicted Score: Seattle 30, Dallas 27
