2. More saps for Izzy Mukuamu

Remember in the playoffs last year when Mukaumu locked up Chris Godwin in the slot? That seemed to foreshadow Mukuamu's future role in Dan Quinn's defense, but the 2021 sixth-round pick hasn't sniffed the field this season.

In 11 games, Mukuamu has played 54 defensive snaps compared to 157 on special teams. He's logged three or fewer snaps in five of eight games he's been active.

That can be attributed to the Cowboys being loaded at safety and only carrying four corners on game day, but their talent at safety is grossly overrated and Jourdan Lewis has been a liability in the nickel all season.

At some point, new personnel wouldn't hurt. What better time than allowing a previously anemic Seahawks offense -- that hadn't scored an offensive touchdown in eight quarters -- to impersonate The Greatest Show on Turf?
