The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys will finish up their preseason slate Friday, August 26, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Drew Lock should get his opportunity to audition for the starting quarterback job for the winless Seahawks (0-2). Dallas’ starters have barely played in the preseason and it’s uncertain if they will play this week. The Cowboys are 1-1.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET Friday and the game will air nationally on the NFL Network, KING-TV in Seattle and KTVT-TV in Dallas. The Seahawks are three-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook.
With Drew Lock unavailable with COVID-19 symptoms, it was a chance for Geno Smith to get a leg up in the quarterback competiton against the Chicago Bears. Smith, despite having the luxury of D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett playing, didn’t do anything special. He was victimized by a couple of drops and threw for 112 yards in the first half. DeeJay Dallas showed some nice receiving skills and might have a bigger role in the offense this year.
Which Seahawks will play, expected inactives
Ken Walker is out with a hernia injury and Rashaad Penny is out with COVID-19.
The Cowboys didn’t do much with the 1s or the 2s in last week’s 32-18 win over the San Diego Chargers. The playing roster seemed more like a group auditioning for potential roles on the practice squad. But return specialist Kavontae Turpin put on a show!

Which Cowboys will play, expected inactives
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will not play in preseason for a second straight year. He did pretty good in the season opener against Tampa Bay in 2021. They expect the same against Tampa in 2022 on Sept. 11— Clarence Hill Jr (@clarencehilljr) August 23, 2022
