The Seahawks won in dramatic fashion for the second straight week, this time holding off the Cowboys for a 38-31 victory that improved their record to 3-0. In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of Seattle's Week 3 win:

2

Times under Pete Carroll the Seahawks have started a season 3-0, this year and 2013.

35

The Seahawks have scored 35 or more points in each of their first three games, the first time since 2015 they've scored 35 or more in three straight.  

5

Touchdown passes for Russell Wilson for the second week in a row. Wilson became the first quarterback in league history to throw four or more touchdown passes in the first three games of a season, and the fifth to throw at least five touchdown passes in consecutive games.

14

NFL-leading touchdown passes for Wilson this season, the most ever in the first three games of a season, passing Patrick Mahomes' start in his MVP-winning 2018 season.

33

Game-winning drives, postseason included, in the fourth quarter or overtime led by Wilson in his career, the most in the NFL since 2012.

3

Touchdown receptions for Tyler Lockett, a career high, all of them coming in the first half, marking the fourth time in franchise history a player has had three touchdown catches in a half. Lockett had nine catches for 100 yards, his seventh game, postseason included, with eight or more receptions, all of which have come since the start of last season.

4

Receptions for DK Metcalf, the same total of catches he had in each of the first two games. Metcalf has certainly gotten a lot out of those 12 caches, gaining 297 yards, including 110 on Sunday, and scoring three touchdowns, including the 29-yard game-winner.

15

Tackles for Ugo Amadi in two games since taking over the nickel role. Amadi had two third-down pass breakups on Sunday, as well as a tackle on third down that forced a Dallas punt, and he also got the stop on a 2-point conversion attempt that would have tied the score in the fourth quarter.

3

Takeaways by Seattle's defense, which also forced a safety. The Seahawks are now plus-four in turnover differential, tied for the second-best mark in the league.

4

Career games played over two-plus seasons for Ryan Neal, who was activated off of the practice squad on Saturday. Neal was forced into action at safety due to Jamal Adams' groin injury, and clinched victory with his first career interception on Dallas' final play.

5

Receptions for 61 yards by Greg Olsen, his most as a Seahawk so far. That total included a great sideline grab that set up a touchdown, as well as a fourth-down catch that extended the eventual game-winning drive. 

9

Pass plays of 20 or more yards for Dallas, including three touchdowns of 40 or more yards, something Pete Carroll and the defense know needs to improve, with Carroll noting, "We have a lot of work to do on our pass defense; it continues to be a problem."
