The Dallas Cowboys are on the road against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend. Are the experts picking the Cowboys to win?

The Dallas Cowboys visit CenturyLink Stadium on Sunday to play the Seattle Seahawks in a 4:15 p.m. ET matchup, televised on FOX. Experts around the Internet have made their picks, and the Cowboys, a 3-point favorite on most books, are generally favored by the talking heads.

Mark Schlereth and Cris Carter are the only ones on ESPN's panel of a dozen NFL experts to pick Seattle as winners this week. Accuscore and ESPN's "Pick'em" game also have the Cowboys winning.

Pete Prisco at CBS says Dallas by a touchdown. Prisco cites the Cowboys' well-restedness and the pressure of their front seven as deciding factors in the game.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman bucks the consensus in this week's picks column. Thorman lists Seattle's significant home field advantage as the factor that will give the Seahawks a narrow 24-23 victory.
