The quarterbacks and running backs will grab the headlines, but Saturday’s game comes down to who wins in the trenches.
The Dallas Cowboys came out on top in a physical football game against the Seattle Seahawks last Saturday night in the Wild Card round of the NFC Playoffs. Led by Frank Clark and company, the Seahawks are known to play tough while possessing the ability to stuff the run and get after the quarterback. Dallas proved it was able to match Seattle’s toughness, as rookie offensive guard Connor Williams stepped up in a big way and filled in nicely, despite some worrying about how the Cowboys would perform without Xavier Su’a-Filo.
In fact, the rookie from Texas made an impressive block on the essential game-sealing run from quarterback Dak Prescott.
