CHEWABLE: How impressive have the Cowboys been at AT&T Stadium this season?

Not only are they the only team in NFL history to win their first five home games by at least 20 points, but they’ve actually outscored opponents 215-50, or an average of 43-10 on familiar turf.

For the trend to continue, they’d have to beat the Seahawks by 33 points on Thursday, which isn’t going to happen … Right? Don’t be so sure…

— That the Cowboys are 3-3 and have been outscored 125-122 in their six road games doesn’t matter in this instance, but the fact they are 0-2 and have been outscored 70-33 in their only two games against teams with a winning record does because the Seahawks are just the third Dallas opponent to have more ‘W’s than ‘L’s.

— Seattle has lost three of its past four and is coming off a 31-13 Thanksgiving Thursday basting while failing to score an offensive touchdown against San Francisco.

In fact, while the Seahawks have averaged just 12.8 points over the past four, the offence hasn’t reached the end zone since a DK Metcalf eight-yard reception in the first quarter of a 17-16 loss to the Rams in Week 11.

This does not bode well against Dallas. Only the Niners, Ravens and Chiefs have allowed a lower points-per-game average than the 16.8 surrendered by the Cowboys.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

— No quarterback is hotter than Dak Prescott, who has thrown 17 touchdown passes against just two interceptions in his past five games. The Seahawks are 22nd against the pass.

— An oblique injury is expected to keep Kenneth Walker III out of the Seattle lineup again this week. With rookie Zach Charbonnet as the lead back, the Seahawks had just 88 rushing yards against the Niners and 68 against the Rams, although Walker was around for four carries and 18 yards before getting hurt against Los Angeles.

— According to the always overly optimistic Pete Carroll, there is a “night and day” difference between last week and this week in Geno Smith, who is playing through an elbow injury. His coach’s positivity aside, minus a decent running threat, Smith was sacked six times by the Niners and should be easy pickings for a Dallas pass rush that is tied for fourth in the league with 37 sacks.

— After an eight-game drought, Cowboys RB Tony Pollard has scored touchdowns in consecutive weeks. He averaged 6.1 yards with 13 carries against the Commanders and should be able to do similar damage against a Seahawks run defence ranked 21st.

— So maybe they don’t win by 33, but still with a hope of catching the first-place Eagles. Expect the Cowboys to keep rolling with all eyes watching this Prime Time matchup.
