Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's out there for today — Friday, December 22 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Leading up to the Seahawks' crucial Week 16 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium, NFL.com put together a photo essay with "mind-boggling" stats for each team. The Seahawks and Cowboys are both battling for a spot for the playoffs and loser of the Christmas Eve game will be eliminated from postseason contention.
Here are a few of the numbers:
*The Seahawks have made the playoffs in five straight seasons - the NFL's second longest active streak behind the Patriots. They have made the playoffs in six of the previous seven seasons in the Pete Carroll era and are in danger of missing playoffs for the first time since 2011. The Cowboys are seeking their first back-to-back playoff appearance since 2006-07. *
*The Seahawks have allowed a 100-yard rusher in back-to-back weeks and will face Ezekiel Elliott in Week 16. The Seahawks have never allowed a 100-yard rusher in 3 straight weeks in the Pete Carroll era. *
*Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott have accounted for a combined 60 touchdowns this season (Wilson 33, Prescott 27, both top 5 in NFL). They are two of four players to account for 20+ wins and 50+ touchdowns in first two seasons (Prescott, Wilson, Andrew Luck, Dan Marino). *
