Seahawks two-minute drill
Players of the game
• The Cowboys' DeMarco Murray rushed for 139 yards, the most allowed by the Seahawks this season.
• The Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch rushed for 135 yards, his most in a regular-season start since coming to Seattle. He scored Seattle's only touchdown of the game.
Play of the game
Tony Romo completed 19 passes against the Seahawks, none easier than the 33-yard touchdown to tight end Jason Witten in the third quarter. Witten was totally uncovered on the seam route after what appeared to be a miscommunication between linebackers K.J. Wright and David Hawthorne. The touchdown with 8:39 left in the quarter gave Dallas a lead it never lost.
The Seahawks faced third-and-three at the Dallas 13. Seattle trailed 6-3 and had a chance to take its first halftime lead of the season, but quarterback Tarvaris Jackson lobbed a pass too high for a well-covered Sidney Rice, and it sailed out of bounds incomplete. Mike Williams was wide open at about the Cowboys' 5, which would have given Seattle a first down. The Seahawks kicked the field goal to tie the score, but for the third consecutive week never managed to hold a lead.
• The Seahawks allowed a 100-yard rusher for the first time when Red Bryant played an entire game at defensive end.
• The Seahawks allowed one sack, their second-fewest in any game this season.

Coach Pete Carroll: "I'm really disappointed at where we are. We thought we could be better. I don't know any other way to think. It doesn't matter. Now it's about going back to it and seeing if we can put together games that give us a chance to get some momentum going."
