The Dallas Cowboys could open the 2014 season by going on the road to face the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, several writers have pointed out since the Seahawks’ win on Sunday.
The MMQB.com’s Peter King, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and ESPN Dallas’ Todd Archer have all pointed out that the league could pair the two and open the season with a healthy ratings grab. The Seahawks are a draw, of course, because they’re the champs, the Cowboys because they’re the Cowboys, and even a half decade of utter mediocrity hasn’t really affected their status as the most perennially visible team in the league.
As Archer points out, the NFL has some attractive options for the opener that wouldn’t involve Dallas. Among the teams that will travel to Seattle in 2014--49ers and the rest of the NFC West not included--are the Giants, Broncos, and the Packers.
A decision on the opener should come down during the Owners Meetings next month.
