The Dallas Cowboys will attempt to extend one streak and halt another when they kick off Week 13 of the 2023 NFL schedule against the visiting Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. Dallas (8-3) demolished Washington, 45-10, last week for its 13th consecutive home victory, its longest such run since the franchise-record 18-game streak from 1979 to 1981. However, the Cowboys have lost four straight regular-season meetings with Seattle (6-5), which was trounced 31-13 by San Francisco last Thursday for its third loss in four contests.
Kickoff from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tx. is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. Dallas is a 9-point favorite in the latest Seahawks vs. Cowboys odds, while the over/under for total points scored is 47.5.

Why the Cowboys can cover
Dallas leads the NFL with an average of 31.5 points per game and has scored at least 30 in its five home contests. It recorded 43 or more points in three straight games at home and has averaged 42.3 during its current three-game overall winning streak. Quarterback Dak Prescott has been on fire since the team returned from its bye, throwing 17 touchdown passes and only two interceptions in five outings after making just six TD tosses over his first six games of the season.
The Cowboys also have been strong on the other side of the ball, ranking third in total defense (276.3 yards allowed) and second against the pass (167.2). Cornerback DaRon Bland leads the league with seven interceptions and has returned an NFL-record five for touchdowns. Linebacker Micah Parsons is sixth with 11.5 sacks, two shy of the career-high he set last year, and is just the third player since the statistic became official in 1982 to register at least 11 in each of his first three NFL seasons.

Why the Seahawks can cover
Seattle is facing a Dallas team that hasn't lost at home since the 2022 season-opener, but has yet to defeat a team this year that currently is .500 or better. The Cowboys are the fifth club in NFL history with eight or more victories through Week 12 of a campaign but none against opponents with at least an even record at that juncture. Dallas is one of the top offensive teams in the league this campaign and was no slouch in their meeting in 2020 (522 total yards, 461 passing), but the Seahawks still came away with a 38-31 victory.
Tyler Lockett was a scoring machine in the opening half of the contest, as he had a 43-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and a pair of 1-yarders in the second. The 31-year-old wideout, who is 425 receiving yards away from his fifth straight 1,000-yard season, finished with 100 in that win and DK Metcalf hauled in four passes for 110 yards and the winning TD with 1:47 left in the fourth quarter. Metcalf is closing in on his third career 1,000-yard campaign and leads Seattle with 678 yards. See which team to pick here.
