Jake Heaps’ Film Room: Seahawks’ offense won a crucial chess match

Sep 26, 2018, 1:00 PM

The Seahawks showed something in their Week 3 victory over the Dallas Cowboys that wasn’t present in their two losses to begin the season: offensive progress.

Forget Rosen — key matchup for Seattle will be offense vs Cards’ D

Seattle defeated Dallas 24-13 thanks in part to a stellar second quarter on offense, as Russell Wilson and company scored a pair of touchdowns and added a field goal to jump out to a 17-3 lead by halftime.

We go back into the film room to break down that victory with former Seahawks quarterback and current 710Sports.com contributor Jake Heaps, who shows how a chess match that Seattle won early against the Cowboys’ defense set the Seahawks up for more success throughout the game. Heaps also explains how finding success on those plays will help going into this Sunday’s game against the division rival Arizona Cardinals.
