Dallas Cowboys can learn from Week 3 loss to Seattle Seahawks

The Dallas Cowboys are 1-2 following a Week 3 loss in Seattle but there are takeaways both positive and negative ahead of a Week 4 showdown with Cleveland.

DALLAS — The Dallas Cowboys lost another close game in which they didn’t play particularly well. That’s been a recurring theme for the team thus far on the season, with two losses in the final minutes and the lone victory coming on a field goal as time expired following an unlikely onside kick recovery.

Overall, Dallas hasn’t performed consistently enough for 60 minutes to win games. While they could conceivably be 3-0 this season with a few more fortuitous bounces, they’re even luckier that they haven’t started their 2020 campaign 0-3.

Pete Prisco’s NFL Week 4 odds, picks: Cowboys rout Browns, Chiefs roll past Patriots, 49ers edge Eagles

Picking NFL games so far in the early season hasn’t been as challenging for me as in years past. I went 9-7 against the spread last week for a season record of 29-18-1, which is good by any standards. My straight-up record is 33-14-1.

On the Pick-Six Podcast, where we pick our best bets every week, I went 4-2 this past week and I am a sizzling 13-3 with my best bets. That includes a loss with the over in the Ravens-Chiefs game by a half a point in a game that had no business going under.

Let’s keep up the hot start and I offer one big tip as we head to Week 4: Play the overs. Until they can show me otherwise, the NFL defenses stink this year.

The Cowboys had no business winning vs. Falcons. That is, until Dak Prescott changed the narrative.

ARLINGTON — What took place at AT&T Stadium Sunday afternoon counts only one game in the standings.

It could mean much more before the season is done.

It could be the game that nudges Dak Prescott into another category.

That’s a lot of weight to ascribe to a narrow victory over a winless Atlanta team in Week Two. But the nature of this improbable comeback, the way Prescott and others responded in the face of adversity, can reverberate well beyond the 40-39 final score.

Every successful season has a game or two that coaches and players point to with pride and say that’s the moment. That outcome had an emotional impact and instilled confidence well beyond the one game it meant in the standings.

Substantial work remains before Dallas can look back on this win over the Falcons and make that claim. But the Cowboys overcame a 15-point deficit in
