The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys are set to face off on Thursday Night Football this week and it promises to be a can’t-miss game. Here are the top five reasons you should tune in:1. The RivalryThe Seahawks and Cowboys have had some epic battles over the years, with the most recent one coming last season when the Seahawks knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs with a thrilling 24-22 victory. There’s no love lost between these two teams and you can bet that they’ll be looking to take each other down again on Thursday night.2. The Seahawks’ DefenseThe Seahawks boast one of the best defenses in the NFL, led by All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner. They’re coming off a dominant performance against the 49ers in which they held San Francisco to just nine points and sacked Jimmy Garoppolo five times. If they can replicate that kind of performance against the Cowboys, it could be a long night for Dak Prescott and company.3. The Cowboys’ OffenseOn the other side of the ball, the Cowboys have one of the most potent offenses in the league. They’re led by Prescott, who is coming off a career-best season, and Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott. Dallas also has a talented group of receivers, led by Amari Cooper. If the Cowboys can get their offense clicking, they could put up a lot of points against the Seahawks.4. The Seahawks’ Quarterback SituationThe Seahawks’ quarterback situation has been a bit of a mess this season. They started the year with Russell Wilson, but he was replaced by Geno Smith after suffering an injury. Smith then had to leave the game last week after getting hurt, so Wilson had to come back in and finish the game. It’s unclear who will start on Thursday night, but it’s worth tuning in to see how the situation plays out.5. The Thursday Night Football FactorThursday Night Football games are always must-see TV. They’re typically close games and this one promises to be no different. The Seahawks and Cowboys are two of the best teams in the NFL and they’ll be going head-to-head on Thursday night. You won’t want to miss it.
