The Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks are considered to be two of the NFC’s top Super Bowl contenders, and they'll meet in what should be one of the best games on the schedule in Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season.

The early betting line favors Seattle by 4.5 points at home, according to odds compiled by OddsShark. Sunday’s over/under is 55.5, the highest on the entire slate.

The Seahawks and Cowboys are among the best offensive teams in the league. Seattle ranks second overall with 36.5 points per game and 6.9 yards per play. A season after finishing first in total offense, Dallas is second with 475.0 yards per game. The Cowboys are fifth in yards per play (6.3) and eighth in points per game (28.5). 

Neither team has excelled defensively, to put it kindly. 

The Seahawks are dead last in total defense and 30th in yards per play allowed. The Cowboys rank 25th in yards allowed. Seattle has three sacks. Dallas has only sacked the quarterback twice.

Dallas needed a historic comeback and an onside kick to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 40-39 in Week 2. Seattle beat Atlanta 38-25 in the season opener, winning rather handily.

Self-inflicted wounds put the Cowboys in an early hole. Dallas lost three fumbles and failed to convert on a pair of fake punts. An explosive offense plus a little bit of luck helped Dallas pick up its first win of the year.

Dak Prescott was terrific in Week 2, throwing for 450 yards and a touchdown while rushing for three more scores. He wasn’t as good in the opener, throwing for 266 yards and a 92.5 passer rating in a 20-17 road loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Matt Ryan threw for a league-high 450 yards against the Seahawks in Week 1. Cam Newton had 397 passing yards—his highest passing total since he was a rookie—and came two yards shy of helping the New England Patriots upset the Seahawks in Week 2.

Russell Wilson was just too good. Seattle beat New England 35-30.

Wilson leads all quarterbacks with nine touchdown passes and a 140.0 passer rating. Seattle’s signal caller has thrown one interception off a dropped pass that wasn’t his fault. He hasn’t had a multi-interception game in two years.

Inarguably the NFC’s best quarterback, Wilson might be starting his first MVP campaign.

Both teams should score a lot of points in a competitive contest at CenturyLink Field. If the Cowboys can avoid making unforced errors, they can challenge the Seahawks for four quarters.

But against such a poor defense, Wilson should find a way to get Seattle the win.

Prediction: Seattle over Dallas, 33-30
