Dallas Cowboys are hosting Seattle Seahawks in a football match.  Odds and preview. Dallas Cowboys' fans are overjoyed this week as the team's top running back, Ezekiel Elliott, is set to return to the fold following a six game suspension.

Amazingly, the Cowboys have kept their playoff hopes alive in Elliott's absence, thanks to continued strong play from the offensive line and some timely TDs by the Cowboys' fill-in running backs. With Elliott set to return to the line-up, the Cowboys can certainly build some momentum in the hopes of making the playoffs.

For the Seahawks, things seem to be going from bad to worse following a blow-out loss at home to the Rams. The Seahawks, who won the Super Bowl just a few short years ago, are now looking at the very real possibility of missing the playoffs. The NFL is strong this year, and the Seahawks may find themselves on the outside looking in when playoff time comes around.

This is a must-win game for both teams, though the Hawks are in turmoil while the Cowboys are set for a big boost from Elliott's return.

The Cowboys are going to send a statement in this game, and I wouldn't be surprised if they run Elliott down the Seahawks' throats. Given the discord and injuries in the Seahawks' defensive corps right now, I don't expect that they will be able to do much to stop him.

The Cowboys have been patiently waiting six weeks for Elliott to return - will he deliver in his first game back?
