Seahawks VS Cowboys- Cowboys Emerge Victorious
In an action packed game, the Dallas Cowboys emerged victorious against the Seattle Seahawks. In a last quarter, the Cowboys pulled out a win 24-22 and scored a home game victory. As I predicted, it was an action packed game, with two strong offense teams. Russell Wilson starred in several plays that went off half cocked, and many that didn't. The result was gaining only 73-yards in 24 plays when they were ahead. The wildcard game was fun to watch of you are a Cowboys fan, as the Seahawks only made 113 yards in 39 plays. What do you think? We're the teams evenly matched?

Seahawks VS Cowboys! This game is going to be interesting.
As a fan of the Seahawks and a Seattle resident, any game where the Hawks face a major team peaks my interest. Saturday's game is going to be alot of fun to watch. This is a wildcard game and Russell Wilson is going to bring the fire tomorrow. The Dallas Cowboys lost 21-12 to the Seahawks earlier this year and will be hosting them on Saturday. The Seahawks famously had the most penalties ever this year and are well known to bring the fire in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the game. Both teams have expetiemced quarterbacks, offensive lines and are known the be aggressive on the field. I am excited to see these evenly matched teams play. The Seahawks have won 6/7 of their last games while the Cowboys have won 7/8. I believe the Hawks will take home the victory. What's your take?

Seattle Seahawks lose to 49ers!
Seattle lost to the 49ers due to their surprising amount of penalties. They officially broke the record for yards lost to penalties. The Seattle Seahawks are well known for being an aggressive team and for losing yardage to penalties. They lost in overtime 23-26 most definitely for all their penalties. It was an exciting game overall. What are your thoughts on the Seahawks this season and all their aggressive action?
Who needs to listen to their coach? The thin line between a hero and a goat.
The answer to that question is... it depends. Like everything in life, decisions and actions are measured by results. If you end up with the desired result (like winning a game) then you chose wisely. If you don't (like you lose the game or turn to ash after drinking from the wrong Holy Grail) then you chose poorly. This weekend in the NFL, two special team players decided to defy their coaches. One is a hero... the other is a goat. There is a thin line between the hero and the goat. This one just couldn't choose. Let's start with the goat (I'd like to end on a happy note). With just over 2 minutes left and the Green Bay Packers trailing the L.A. Rams 29 to 27, the Packers sent their kick return team on to the field. Packers coaches specifically instructed their kick returner, Ty Montgomery, to take a knee if he fielded the ball in the end zone. Take a knee? Don't even try? Are they freaking cowards? Ummmm no. The Packers happened to have Aaron Rodgers warming up on the sidelines. Do you know what Aron Rodgers does when games are on the line? He turns into a version of himself from Madden NFL 19 and he throws seemingly impossibly perfect passes one after another until his team scores. Perhaps he does it too quickly and his defense still loses... but if you don't think Aaron Rodgers is your best bet to win a game in the 4th quarter, then you haven't been watching football for the past 10 years. So why did Ty Montgomery defy his coaches and run the ball out? Reports indicate that he was pissed that he was taken out on the previous drive. I respect the desire to compete. I can understand wanting to slam your helmet in frustration because you want an opportunity to help your TEAM win. But when he decided to run the ball out, he was putting himself before the team. If you'd like to be a goat, a good place to start is taking the ball out of #12's hands. Fate has a way of finding and punishing the selfish and the foolish. Sunday was no exception. After selfishly and foolishly taking the ball out of the End Zone, Ty Montgomery fumbled. The Rams recovered. Rodgers never got the chance to transform into "video game mode". Ty Montgomery became the goat. Meanwhile in Detroit, Seahawks punter Michael Dickson attempted to obey his coaches... but ultimately became a hero when he decided not to. With 2:18 left in the game, the Seahawks lead 28 to 14. They were trapped on their own 3 yard line facing a 4th and 8 for the first down. Naturally, they decided to punt. Quite unnaturally, Seahawks coach Pete Carrolll instructed his punter to run around the back of the End Zone, waste some clock, and take a safety. Then something unexpected happened. The Lions decided not to chase the punter. Most turned their backs and ran down the field to block for their returner. Seemingly wanting to cement his team's victory, Dickson took off running. Nine yards later, the Seahawks began their first and 10 and sealed the deal. If your punter needs 8 yards with 1 guy to beat, you better hope he's from Australia. Dickson is a hero and probably the most famous punter in the NFL today (this week at least). So who needs to listen to their coach? Everyone of course... sometimes.
