Cowboys' defensive snaps at Seattle

10/13/2014

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain didn't practice until Friday, but it didn't seem to affect him in the 30-23 win against the Seattle Seahawks.

He played 43 plays and finished with four tackles, a tackle for loss, a pass deflection and the game-clinching interception 20 yards from the line of scrimmage.

Anthony Spencer played a season-high 29 plays and easily had his best game of the season. He had three tackles, but he applied consistent pressure to quarterback Russell Wilson and made him move in the pocket several times.

Kyle Wilber had two pass deflections -- one was a dropped interception that he might've scored on -- in 13 plays, the most he's played in a couple of weeks.

Tyrone Crawford and Henry Melton seem to be splitting the three-technique position with Crawford doing the heavy lifting and Melton providing the change of pace.

There's still plenty of time, but you wonder if Crawford's development means the Cowboys will pass on Melton's three-year team option at the end of the season.
