Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas suggested that his team might have taken home field advantage for granted heading into Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
The loss was Seattle's first at home this season and dropped its record to 3-2.
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions, while tailback DeMarco Murray rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown, marking his sixth consecutive game with at least 100 yards on the ground. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson completed 14 of 28 passes for 126 yards and zero touchdowns with one interception, and the team managed only 80 rushing yards.
Thomas also had an interesting response when asked about Doug Baldwin’s comments the day before that the Seahawks are not as good as they think they are. Thomas said flatly that, “I don’t agree with that. … what Doug said, if you don’t come out there with the right mentality, then you can get your butt whupped. I think a lot of guys on this team, maybe we took home field advantage for granted, that when we play at home we will get this dub (W).”
The Seahawks play at St. Louis on Sunday.
