The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys will meet in the NFC Wild Card Game in a rematch of their postseason meeting in January 2007.

Dallas opens as a 2.5-point home favorite against Seattle. The Cowboys have played two home playoff games since 2010 and have failed to cover the spread in both.

The Seahawks are back in the playoffs after missing the postseason for just the second time under Pete Carroll last season. The Seahawks missed the 2011 playoffs, and when they returned in 2012, they lost on the road to the Falcons in the divisional round.
