The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers are two of the most popular teams in the NFL, and they’re also two of the best teams in the league. The Cowboys are 3-1, and the 49ers are 4-0. This game is going to be a battle between two evenly-matched teams, and it’s sure to be one of the most exciting games of the week.
Dak Prescott Leads Cowboy’s Offense
The Cowboys are led by quarterback Dak Prescott, who is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Prescott has thrown for 1,126 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions in four games. He’s also been a good runner, with 103 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
The Cowboys’ running game has been one of their strengths this season, as they’re averaging 135.3 yards per game on the ground. Ezekiel Elliott has been the Cowboys’ lead back, and he’s been one of the most consistent running backs in the NFL so far this season.
The Cowboys’ defense has been pretty strong this season. In the end, they’re allowing 25.3 points per game. They’ve also forced just six turnovers, which is tied for the fewest in the league.
49er’s Led By Purdy
The 49ers are led by quarterback Brock Purdy. Although he was the last pick in his draft, he has done well for himself this season. All in all, their offense had been strong this year. In the end, they scored a total of 30 points in each game.
Furthermore, the 49ers’ running game has been one of their strengths this season, as they’re averaging 138.8 yards per game on the ground. Christian McCaffrey has been the 49ers’ lead back. Just last week he had three touchdowns against the Cardinals.
49er’s Dominate with Defense
Meanwhile, the 49ers’ defense has been one of the best in the NFL so far this season. They’re allowing just 18.3 points per game, which is sixth in the league. They’ve also forced 10 turnovers, which is tied for the second-most in the league.
Prediction for Cowboys vs 49ers
This is a tough game to predict, as the Cowboys and 49ers are both talented teams. However, I think the 49ers have a slight edge in this matchup. The 49ers have a better defense than the Cowboys, and their running game is just as good. I think the 49ers will be able to win this game by a score of 28-24.
Pick: 49ers 28, Cowboys 24
