This may have been the final game of the preseason, but with players fighting for their NFL lives,

fans were treated to an entertaining matchup that saw the Dallas Cowboys secure a late 27-26 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Because the Cowboys played largely backups throughout the night while nine of the Seahawks' 11 offensive starters were on the field early on,

it was perhaps no surprise that Dallas fell behind early. But the team battled back, tying the score late in the third quarter and then coming from behind again in the fourth to earn the win.

Defensively, Dallas brought back memories of last season when they led the NFL with 34 takeaways. The group earned five in this game

four interceptions and one fumble recovery. The Cowboys gave up 328 yards, but held Seattle to just a 15 percent success rate on third downs

On the other side of the ball, Will Grier spent most of the game behind center for the Cowboys, but may not have done enough to overtake Cooper Rush for the backup quarterback job.

In an up and down effort, he threw for just 88 yards, although that included two touchdown tosses for a passer rating of 94.5.

Rush completed only two of five attempts for 40 yards, but was in for only one series of play before getting the rest of the night off.

Again, the Cowboys offense did well on the ground, rushing for 128 yards total. Rookie Aaron Shampklin led the way with 54 yards on 13 carries

before leaving the game late due to injury. In his bid to make the roster, Malik Davis continued his strong play with 44 yards on 15 attempts.
