Seahawks knocked out of playoffs with 24-22 loss to Cowboys

Prescott Vs Wilson Who's Got The Edge in Wild Card Game

Prescott Vs Wilson Who's Got The Edge in Wild Card Game

Since Carroll took over in 2010, the Seahawks have gone 6-0 in their opening game (4-0 in the Wild-Card Round, 2-0 Divisional Round).

Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns was carted off the field Saturday during the team's matchup with the Seahawks in the NFC wild-card round.

Here is video of the play, but we warn you it is graphic.

The playoff win by the Cowboys (11-6) was the first for Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott on their second try after losing a divisional game as rookies two years ago.

Hurns' leg was wrenched as he was tackled on a 14-yard catch by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald and his left foot was pointing up as he lay on his stomach in pain.

Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers was also shaken up momentarily on a play but was able to re-enter the action.

The Cowboys made the bold move to trade a first round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Cooper, who leads the team in receiving since the trade.

That allowed the Seahawks to keep driving, and a read-option keeper by Wilson gave Seattle a touchdown and the lead. Dallas then survived a lightning strike Seahawks touchdown and two-point conversion, but the worst onside kick attempt in National Football League history scrubbed out any hope of a comeback for Seattle. That meant All-Pro punter Michael Dickson would take over kicking responsibilities.

But the missing kicker left the Seahawks no good options on an onside kick with 1:18 remaining.

Prescott led a 67-yard drive to put the Cowboys in front.

Carson had just 20 yards on 13 carries. While Prescott's TD certainly hurt, it was his 16-yard run on third-and-14 from the Seattle 17 that was the real back-breaker as it prevented the Seahawks from holding Dallas to a field goal attempt that would have kept it a one-score game.
