NFL Wild Card live blog, open thread: Seahawks at Cowboys

Time for the second half of Saturday’s doubleheader.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that first game was certainly a letdown. The Houston Texans looked lifeless against a surging Colts teams and as a result, their offseason has arrived. Hopefully, a better game is on the horizon.

The Dallas will host the second playoff game in Texas on Saturday, hoping for better results from Dak Prescott and the rest of the Cowboys. However, like the Texans, they’ll have to face one of the hotter teams in the NFL. After a 2-3 start to the season, the Seattle Seahawks finished the season by winning eight of their final 11 games.

Way back in Week 3, the Seahawks hosted the Cowboys and beat them pretty handily: 24-13. However, now Dallas has the home-field advantage, and both teams are playing much differently than they did back on that September afternoon.

Will the Cowboys win their first playoff games since... oh crap, let’s just scrap this sentence.

Have fun. Watch the game. Go team!

Kickoff is at 8:15 p.m. ET.
