It was neither easy nor especially pretty, but the Seahawks played enough defense to get what might prove to be a key road win in Dallas Sunday and get back to .500 on the season at 4-4.
The Seahawks didn’t give up a touchdown — most notably holding the Cowboys to a field goal early in the fourth quarter after an interception set up the Cowboys at the Seahawks’ 16-yard line — and held on for a 13-12 win.
The Seahawks held the Cowboys to 220 total yards and four field goals.
A Steven Hauschka 24-yard field goal with 1:10 left provided the winning points and sent the Cowboys to their fifth straight loss. The Seahawks scored the game’s only touchdown in the second quarter on a Russell Wilson pass to Luke Willson.
Cowboys quarterback Matt Cassel was 13-of-25 for 97 yards. Playing for the first time since Week 1, Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had just two catches for 12 yards.
Jimmy Graham caught seven passes for 75 yards to lead the Seahawks, who got 71 yards rushing from Marshawn Lynch.
The Seahawks are off next week before hosting the first-place Cardinals on Nov. 15. The Cowboys slip to 2-5 and play the Eagles next week.
