Will the numbers lie for Dallas Cowboys-Seattle Seahawks matchup?

The Dallas Cowboys travel to face off against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks for the fourth time in the last five years. The Cowboys currently sit 1-1 on the year tied for first place in the NFC East. Coaches say they’re treating this week just as any other week on the calendar. Players still show faith this offense will show some resemblance of a good NFL unit. Let’s take a look at how the numbers predict how exactly the Cowboys will do. Because numbers never lie, right?
