1 Ogletree’s encore
Receiver Kevin Ogletree took advantage of single coverage when the Dallas Cowboys went four-wide because Jason Witten was on his side and got a lot of attention from the New York Giants. But the Seattle Seahawks’ secondary is much healthier than the Giants’.
2 Better timing
The Cowboys committed nine pre-snap penalties on offense last week. Left tackle Tyron Smith had three false starts. Right tackle Doug Free had one. There were two delay-of-games. And that was in relatively quiet MetLife Stadium. The Seahawks’ place won’t be quiet.
3 Front and center
Ryan Cook drew raves for coming in on short notice against the Giants and playing center in place of Phil Costa from the second possession on. Offensive line coach Bill Callahan said Cook, a seven-year veteran who was about to be released by the Miami Dolphins before they traded him
to Dallas, got better with a week of practice.
4 Tall order
The Giants tried cornerback Morris Claiborne on the first play last week, but, after that, kind of stayed away. The Seahawks get to send 6-foot-3 Braylon Edwards and 6-4 Sidney Rice his way. Both will have a height advantage on him.
5 Balancing act
The Seahawks don’t have the Giants’ pass rush, but they have a better secondary. So while Tony Romo might not get as much pressure, it might not be that inviting to throw. This might be a game in which the Cowboys run more than they pass, which might mean a heavy workday for DeMarco Murray.
