SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks will host the second of the team’s three pre-season games Saturday night at Lumen Field against the Dallas Cowboys, one of the team’s rivals at the National Football Conference (NFC).

Storyline to watch
Recipient Cade Johnson won’t be back for the Seahawks’ second game of pre-season, but head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Johnson “is doing much better.” Johnson was taken to Harborview Medical Center near the end of the first half of the Seahawks’ first pre-season game as a precaution, and was eventually diagnosed with a concussion.
Both Drew Lock and rookie Holton Ahlers threw their first touchdown passes at Lumen Field in the team’s first pre-season game and each Seahawks reserve quarterback was once again expected to play almost all matches on Saturday night. Lock missed the Seahawks’ pre-season lone home game in 2022 and then failed to play a regular game during the season as Geno Smith played in every game.
The Seahawks’ top draft pick, defensive back Devon Witherspoon, remains absent as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Jamal Adams has also yet to return to the squad during his recovery, leaving room for second-team youngsters to impress the Seahawks coaching staff.
One player who has done that is Penn State’s untrained rookie Jonathan Sutherland. He moved into the full-back role Witherspoon is expected to eventually take on, and saw several fouls with the first-team defense during training camp. If Sutherland shines against Dallas, he could improve his chances of winning a spot in Week 1.
The Seahawks have 7 favorites via FanDuel Sportsbook and the over/under ratio for the match is 40.
