Russell Wilson throws five touchdowns, outduels Dak Prescott in 38-31 win

The Russell Wilson vs. Dak Prescott duel was every bit as enjoyable as advertised.

Wilson threw five touchdowns, giving him 14 for the season. (He should have had a sixth but more on that later.) That’s the most in NFL history through three games.

Prescott threw for 472 yards and three touchdowns. He became only the second quarterback to throw for more than 450 passing yards in consecutive games, joining Jameis Winston.

Prescott, though, threw his second interception with six seconds left as cornerback Ryan Neal picked him in the end zone, giving the Seahawks a hard-earned 38-31 victory. Seattle remained undefeated, while Dallas fell to 1-2.

Prescott drove the Cowboys 70 yards on 16 plays as they took a 31-30 lead on a 42-yard Greg Zuerlein field goal with 3:59 remaining. It was too much time for Wilson.

DK Metcalf redeemed himself after a careless fumble on his way into the end zone for what should have been a 63-yard touchdown in the first half. The Seahawks budding star caught the game-winning touchdown on a 29-yard pass from Wilson on third-and-three with 1:47 left.

The Cowboys tried to double him, but Metcalf ran by safety Darian Thompson.

Wilson’s pass on the two-point try fell incomplete, but Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill hit Wilson in the head. The Seahawks got another chance. It’s all Wilson needed.

He connected with Jacob Hollister for the conversion, giving the Seahawks a 38-31 lead.

Prescott got the Cowboys as close as the Seattle 22 before an Alton Robinson sack and Neal’s pick.

Tyler Lockett caught nine passes for 103 yards and three touchdowns, while Metcalf had four receptions for 110 yards and one touchdown.

Cowboys pass rusher Aldon Smith had three sacks of Wilson.

Both teams entered with big injuries and left with more.

Seahawks running back Chris Carson grabbed for his left knee after Hill grabbed the running back’s leg and rolled over it on the tackle with 3:03 remaining.

The Seahawks also lost safety Jamal Adams in the fourth quarter. He limped off with a groin injury and didn’t return.

  1. Russell Wilson is the Seattle Seahawks. He is unbelievable. He has been so good for so long, it’s his time to get the recognition he deserves. He is never injured and consistently carries this team. He cannot have an off game and he consistently delivers. Dak racks up the numbers but still just cannot get it done when it matters. Overated.

  2. Russ did fantastic. Would have had 6 TD’s for the day. Also, poor Chris Carson. Since when can a defender grab your ankle and do a gator roll after you’re already on the ground? Hope he’s okay.

  3. It would have been 6 TDs if Metcalf didn’t hotdog at the 1 yard line but he made up with it with the game winner.

    Seattles secondary injuries are a huge problem. At DB they cant cover anybody and now Jamal Adams is hurt.

  4. Cowboys defense just can’t close out a game. They let the Seahawks go down the field in two minutes to score the winning touchdown and did nothing to get in the way. Then the Seahawks defense gets two sacks and a pick to end the game. The Cowboys defense has allowed 77 points in the last two games. If I’m Jerrah Jones, I’m chartering a bus home for the defense.

    Hard to blame this loss in Dak…. Dallas’ defense needs to get their act together

  6. Russ is lights out when needed. DAK will always be a numbers guy but will never lead this team to the promise land. Both teams dealt with injuries but that’s the difference 1 QB can and 1 can’t. McCarthy had a year off and said he studied the game… I think he needs to take a couple more to study again… this Cowboys team look like a wade phillips team or even a Jason garret team. No heart and bad game management.

  7. Dak doesn’t win the big ones. Doesn’t beat winning teams. Is not clutch. Wilson does all of those things. Dallas is a stupid Atlanta onsides kick from being 0-3. But..but, Dak can really throw for a lot of yards. Zeke not looking to great either.

    ==

    A bus? The way they played, more like a fleet of old vans.
    If they get tired and need a rest on the ride home they can park ’em down by the river. That ought to motivate them to play better.

  9. What a low class move by a low class organization.

    Grabbing and rolling Carson. I’m sure it’s ACL.

    He should be suspended for the year and Dallas fined their 1 pick.

    Sickening.

  10. Aldon Smith a beast!!! Imagine where he be if he hasn’t been gone from the league all these years!!!

  11. BEST PLAYER IN FOOTBALL. Machines has the arm, Russell has the brains. Keep doing your thing Russell! We came close last week, but man, what an amazing player he is!

    -Patriots Fan

  12. The Cowboys collectively lack talent. They have stars who literally are only good for one big play a game. Once again they’ve been overrated. Accept what you are and pound the ball. Anyway, the NFC Least is looking prime for a 6 win team to take the division.

    Hawks just trying to get RW an MVP.

    I tend to think its far more likely that
    they’re playing to their strengths because they want to win games. Just sayin’

    Hawks just trying to get RW an MVP. 3 tds from the 1 yard line. No run game and zero defense
    —————————
    Which is exactly why he should be the MVP!!!!!!!

  15. I’m not sure who the Seahwaks DB was who had a Dak Prescott pass hit him in the chest at the Dallas 20 yard line and then kicked it into the air for Gallup to catch for a 1st down.

    Without that wierdness the game wouldn’t have been as close as it was. The Hawks would’ve had a 1st down in the red zone or at the very least the cowboys punt from deep in their own territory.

  16. If Jerry wants to see the Cowboys win another SB, I suggest he go into a cryogenic chamber and be thawed out in 25 years.

  17. Outduels? Dak played behind for most of the game. Almost threw 3 picks, fumbled one away and took a sack on a 3 man rush on the last drive. Russell outshined Dak, and it wasn’t even close.

  18. The two best players on the Cowboys right now are Aldon Smith and CeeDee Lamb. Considering the circumstances of both, a rookie and a guy who hasn’t played in 4 years….that’s sad.

  19. Dumb play but DK but redeemed himself. I remember yelling at my TV during last year’s draft begging my team to get him. They didn’t, got an avg player instead.

  20. Russell’s deep ball is lethal. Very hard for DBs to defend. But high powered offense can only take you so far if your defense is not good. Seattle’s defense is average at best.

  21. Great Game! The Cowboys gotta get their O Line healthy and their D Backs right or it is going to be a long season!

  22. I loved it in the playoffs when the Packers gained the game-ending 1st down and Carroll threw a tantrum like a toddler whose mom wouldn’t buy him that shiny toy.

  23. Proving once again how Dallas is overrated! you guys praise them when they beat up on a losing team but they have yet to beat a winning team!

    Sounds like Buffalo.

  25. Trysten Hill needs to be suspended for at least as long as Carson is injured, minimum 4 games. Intentionally injuring another player after he’s down is a dirtbag move. No place for that in football.

  26. What can you say about Wilson that hasn’t already been said? Seattle might be 0-3 if they hadn’t decided to scrap the old game plan and let Russ cook. I’m concerned about the O-line and the lack of a pass rush that would do wonders for that terrible secondary if they could sign a couple of guys to fix it, but Wilson has proven time and time again that he can overcome the Seahawks’ shortcomings.

  27. Don’t worry Cowboys fans….you’re still leading the NFC East. Actually you’re tied with Washington at 1-2.

  28. Russell Wilson has had the best career by far out of all the QBs in his draft class which is not news today but if you told someone that back in 2012 they would have thought you were crazy.

  29. Dallas is way overrated and will probably finish 2nd in there division again. I’ve never seen a team get as much hype as Dallas.

  30. The Seahawks are about 3 plays from 1-2. Dak had what, 3 turnovers in the game and it was a one score game? If the NFL starts calling holding again, that O line is DOOMED. They couldn’t get to the edge last week without mauling players and it wasn’t much different today.

    That being said, Russell Wilson is amazing. The throws, the footwork, and the timely scrambles. He is something to watch.

  31. Lots of ignorant Dak haters here this morning!

    When a QB is able to get 31 points, with a makeshift O-line (half of the game with only 2 starters!) and no running game, then this ain’t on him! That last second INT? Yeah, avoided a definite sack and still gave his guys one last chance to make a play on the ball.

    And don’t forget; if Zuerlein could kick a damn extra point, Seattle would most likely have had a 3-point lead, with the Cowboys well in range for a field goal to send the game in OT. But I guess Dak is also responsible for that…

    It won’t happen, but I agree. That was disgusting.

  33. And yet he was sacked how many times?

    He might end up with most TD’s and most sacked in the same season.

    Side note, man Russ must be wondering what on earth is going on.

    The first 3 years of his career, Russ saw Aldon Smith in his nightmares when he played for San Fran ( since then its been Aaron Donald ), and then yesterday, 3 sacks by the Smith. Scary thing as well, he looks like he hasnt missed a beat, what a game by him.

    ——————————

    My team picked a receiver who has caught a total of 10 passes in 2 years (none of them in 2020 despite playing in all 3 games) because he could run the cone drill better than DK. If you put JJAW on waivers right now I am not sure anyone would claim him but since, you know, he was the guy drafted over Metcalf, they can’t admit their mistake.

    Oh look, Desean Jackson is hurt again as well, it must be a Monday.

  35. Lets face it the Seahawks have played 3 teams whose defenses aren’t great, the falcons who are being falcons, the Patriots who had 8 players opt-out for COVID before the season where the majority was on Defense,( This is NOT the same Patriots defense from last season) and now the Cowboys. I find it wacky and hilarious that Mahomes and the Chiefs are on a 9 game WINNING streak and still as we speak polishing all their Championship Hardware but after 3 regular-season games, they are some out there trying to crown other folks out here for doing what exactly … I’m still waiting.

  36. Dak seems to be the king of bringing his team back to ALMOST wins. If it werent for the hypnotizer, they would be 0-3

  37. “So much for McCarthy’s strategy…”
    ____________

    File this under: Things that happen when your gameplan is EXACTLY what the opponent hopes you’ll do.

  38. Cowboys secondary and line backers are killing us. They should have kept the veteran dix they had but at this point they need help now before it gets worse and as stop gaps they should sign Clay Matthews and Thomas to one year deals

  39. If you get into a shoot-out with Russell Wilson,you probably will come up on the short end. What I cannot figure out is why McCarthy hardly used one of the best RB’s in the NFL. It doesn’t make any sense.

    MVP for what….the first three games of the season?

  41. Russell Wilson plays the position smarter than anybody ever has with the exception of Joe Montana. And how does he always throw such a perfect deep ball?

  42. Man oh Man…a lot of hatters out there. Russell is MVP and Dak is Horrible, Cowboys stink; yet Cowboys were winning with 4min to play…ummm…chew on that. Long Season folks.

    If we’re playing ‘yah but’ maybe you missed Wilson’s 6th TD pass.
