Dallas was outplayed, out hustled, and run over Sunday from the start in Seattle as the Seahawks routed the Cowboys 27-7.
"They made the critical plays both in the run game and the pass game on both sides of the ball, to win the game, and we have to give them credit, have to give their coaches, players credit, they played better than we did in all three phases," said Head Coach Jason Garrett.
Tony Romo finished 23 of 40 for 251 yards and one touchdown to Miles Austin, but was able to direct only one scoring drive. His performance was overshadowed by rookie Russell Wilson who threw for 151 yards in his first NFL victory.
"Obviously we did not get off to the start that we wanted too, and coming in to maybe the toughest place to play in the league, or at least one of the top ones," declared Romo.
The Cowboys now sit at 1-1 on the season and will next face Tampa Bay who lost at MetLife Stadium Sunday to Eli Manning and the Giants.
