Seahawks crush Cowboys in home opener
The Seattle Seahawks recorded a comfortable victory against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon, winning their home opener 27-7.
Right from the start, the Seahawks grabbed the game’s momentum, as Michael Robinson forced a fumble from Felix Jones on the game’s opening kickoff. That turnover led to a field goal and, four minutes later, Malcolm Smith blocked a punt, which Jeron Johnson then scooped up and returned for a touchdown to put Seattle up 10-0 in the first quarter, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Seattle’s win had everything head coach Pete Carroll is trying to instill in his football team, beginning with a dominant defensive and special teams performance and ending with an offense that does not make mistakes.
In the second half, the Seahawks’ offense, led by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, extended Seattle’s lead with two long touchdown drives that ended with a Wilson touchdown pass to tight end Anthony McCoy and a three-yard touchdown run from Marshawn Lynch.
After the game, Michael Robinson commented on his team’s performance to the Seattle Times. ”Fast and physical and smart. That’s us,” he said.
Seattle will look to continue their winning ways next week against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, while Dallas will try to bounce back against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
