Expect Seahawks and Cowboys to run the ball early, often in playoff showdown
The Seahawks and Cowboys like to run the football. That’s rare in today’s pass-happy NFL. Seattle was, in fact, the only team in the league to run the ball more times than passing it this season. That commitment to the ground game led the Seahawks to the top rushing offense in the NFL. The Cowboys finished 10th, with bruising running back Ezekiel Elliott’s 1,434 yards claiming the rushing title.
