Cowboys Vs. Seahawks 2012: Marshawn Lynch Breaks Out

Marshawn Lynch had a quiet first half against the Dallas Cowboys, rushing for a meager 22 yards on 10 carries. The second half was another story, however, as Lynch finished the game with 122 yards and a touchdown, as the Seahawks upset the Cowboys.

Rowan Kavner of DallasCowboys.com talked with DeMarcus Ware and Jason Garrett about Lynch's performance.

"At first, we were able to stop them on the run," said linebacker DeMarcus Ware. "But when you get out there, sometimes they correct things. They found ways to sort of gash us a little bit. We've got to correct some things this week.

"It comes down to tackling. He's a big back, but at the end of the day, we've got to tackle better. There's going to be some tackle drills this week that sort of refresh our memory how to do it."

Garrett praised Seattle's offensive line after the game as well.

"There's no question they wanted to run the football with Marshawn Lynch," Garrett said. "They have a big, strong offensive line. They want to run the ball and they want to let that be the thing you have to stop defensively, and then let the quarterback play off of that."

Dallas' defense will look to rebound in Week 3, as it plays host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Dallas' 2012 home opener.
