The Seattle Seahawks will travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13’s Thursday Night Football matchup in a game between two of the NFC’s playoff contenders.

The Seahawks, standing at 6-5 this season, are coming off a 31-13 loss at home to the San Francisco 49ers last Thursday Night and now face another top-tier NFC team in the Cowboys.

Dallas, on the other hand, has won three consecutive games against the New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, and Washington Commanders, respectively, and will be looking to tack on another against Seattle.

The Seahawks will be without guard Phil Haynes, while running back Kenneth Walker is doubtful for a second consecutive week. Elsewhere, tight end Will Dissly and defensive lineman Leonard Williams are questionable.

The Cowboys’ main question comes with star pass rusher Micah Parsons, who missed Tuesday’s practice with an illness, but fully participated on Wednesday.

DraftKings Sportsbook places the Cowboys as 9.5-point favorites, with the over/under set at 47.5 points for the game.

With a win, the Cowboys would bridge the gap in the NFC East prior to a matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14.

The Seahawks, on the other hand, are looking to remain above .500 and in the breadth of the playoff race.

With significant division implications on the line Thursday, which side will prevail?
