  • Damage from lightning blamed for thousands in extra security costs at Tacoma Narrows Airport

    Pierce County officials say lightning is believed to have damaged a tunnel outside the Tacoma Narrows Airport, causing what is estimated to be at least $35,000 in additional security and maintenance costs. The bulk of that money, more than $30,000, is being paid to a private security company to monitor the tunnel 24 hours a day in case of a fire, officials said.

  • Seahawks look to turn page on Cowboys loss, talk of ‘championship offseason’ ahead

    The Seahawks’ season ended Saturday in disappointment. Coach Pete Carroll admitted Monday that the defeat still lingered. “It’s just frustrating that we’re not playing,” he said. “The finality hits you square in the face.” But Carroll spent the bulk of his end-of-the-season press conference looking back at the success the team enjoyed and ahead at the possibility of even more to come. “This season was a season of growth and progress, and proving,” he said. “Coming to grips with who […]

  • Expect Seahawks and Cowboys to run the ball early, often in playoff showdown

    The Seahawks and Cowboys like to run the football. That’s rare in today’s pass-happy NFL. Seattle was, in fact, the only team in the league to run the ball more times than passing it this season. That commitment to the ground game led the Seahawks to the top rushing offense in the NFL. The Cowboys finished 10th, with bruising running back Ezekiel Elliott’s 1,434 yards claiming the rushing title. “He’s a great player and he runs strong, he’s elusive,” Seahawks […]

  • Big plays, broken records and epic comebacks — Seahawks vs. Cowboys through the years

    The Seahawks and Cowboys have played 19 times. Dallas holds the slight edge, winning 10, but the Seahawks enjoyed the most memorable victory.

  • Seahawks, Cowboys not the same teams that squared off in September

    The Seattle Seahawks have won their past three games against the Dallas Cowboys. That includes a 24-13 win earlier this season at CenturyLink Field and a 21-12 victory on the road in 2017. But coaches and players say those matchups have little bearing on Saturday’s Wild Card playoff showdown, which kicks off in Arlington, Texas, at 5:15 p.m. Pregame coverage starts at 2 p.m. on Q13 FOX. “I think we both were at different places in our growth for the […]

  • Sweezy questionable, Madden doubtful — everyone else ‘ready to go’ for Seahawks

    J.R. Sweezy will be a game-time decision. Tre Madden likely won’t play.

The game kicks off at 5:15 p.m. and pregame coverage starts at 2 p.m. on Q13 FOX.

  • Seahawks, Cowboys proving prognosticators wrong all the way to a playoff showdown

    After starting the season 0-2, the Seahawks’ odds of making the playoffs appeared slim. At the time, the website fivethirtyeight.com listed those chances at 26 percent. Even beating Dallas in Week 3 only inched that number up slightly. But Seattle won the following week in Arizona and ultimately reeled off 10 wins in the final 14 games of the season to clinch a playoff spot. Now, the Seahawks will face the Cowboys again Saturday in the Wild Card round at […]
