(SEATTLE) Oct. 12, 2014 – Old School-Cowboys and New-School Seahawks slug it out at Centurylink Field

(SEATTLE)  Oct. 12, 2014 – Apparently, the Seahawks have joined the ‘club of the hated.’  The old school ‘hated’ Dallas Cowboys (4-1) came to Centuryink Field to welcome the defending Super Bowl XLVIII champions, new school ‘hated’  Seattle Seahawks (3-1) into an elite group of teams, those despised by underachievers that haven’t earned a gawdy NFL championship ring. Nonetheless, the Cowboys and Seahawks played a seesaw game of tie-lead-tie throughout the first three quarters of the game.

 Although the Seahawks were not as dominant in the first half against the Cowboys as they were against last week’s Redskins, a blocked kick and touchdown return by the Seahawks Mike Morgan (see below)  had Centurylink Field roaring as the special teams once again earned their top billing as the season rolls on.

Even with earplugs on, wheneever the Seahawk’s opponent quarterback is calling a play, Centurylink Field rumbles with the roar of the 12th man.   For those of us working on the sidelines, it’s just like an earthquake of sound going on the field.

For now, I’ll head back out to the field to shoot the remainder of this matchup of ‘the hated’ and let’s see how this slugfest of a game pans out.
