You can copy and paste the phrase The NFL has been crazy this season into an article about every year in the league’s history, but here we are with one game short of 10 weeks in the books, and the Cowboys are the class of the NFC with a rookie quarterback, a rookie running back and a just-good-enough-so-far defense. The NFC teams we thought would be atop the standings, like the Panthers, Cardinals, Packers, have all disappointed. The NFL has been crazy this season.
But order was restored in some small measure on Sunday night, because the Seahawks took down the Patriots, 31-24, and asserted themselves as once again being an excellent team, and a serious obstacle for anyone (like the Cowboys) to overcome if they wish to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. They did so because, in a league where a dominant quarterback can outweigh serious issues in other places on the roster, Russell Wilson is healthy again and looking like his magical self.
