    Whether the Dallas Cowboys can pull off what would be a pretty stunning upset on Sunday and take down the Seattle Seahawks without Tony Romo and possibly without Dez Bryant is one obvious question about Sunday afternoon's game in Arlington.

    Regardless of the result, however, it seems the chances are pretty good that Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is in for a pretty long day at the office.

    Why you ask? Well, despite the Cowboys' issues (there are many), this team can rush the quarterback since the debut of pass-rushing monster (and human-being monster) Greg Hardy and the return of rookie pass-rush specialist Randy Gregory. And the Seahawks? Well, they have some pretty serious protection issues.

    Wilson has been sacked 31 times this year in seven games — more than four times per game — and that's fairly concerning especially when you consider how mobile and elusive Wilson is in the pocket.

    So while the Cowboys might not win Sunday's game, the Seahawks better hope Wilson makes it out of the game on his own accord.
