The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have a long history of excellence and great games against each other in the playoffs. The two teams are both in the midst of a rebuilding project this season and will play on Sunday afternoon in Santa Clara attempting to continue to improve on their new rosters. The Cowboys have won their last two games behind Dak Prescott, while the 49ers have lost two straight after a shutout in Week 1. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Cowboys won 31-17 on Sunday night against the Chicago Bears and have been featuring a lot of Prescott while Tony Romo is out. Prescott has passed for 767 yards and a touchdown while being a solid game manager in his rookie year. Cole Beasley has 20 catches for 213 yards while Dez Bryant has 11 catches for 150 yards and a touchdown. Ezekiel Elliott has 274 rushing yards and two touchdowns and could be the next great Dallas running back with continued progress. The Cowboys defense gets another subpar quarterback in Blaine Gabbert this week. There could be a defensive score or two.
The 49ers lost 37-18 on the road against the Seattle Seahawks and have given up 83 points over the last two weeks. Gabbert has passed for 532 yards and three touchdowns and three interceptions. Jeremy Kerley is leading the team in catches with 12 to go with 114 receiving yards. Carlos Hyde has 225 rushing yards and four touchdowns and has been the only true weapon that the 49ers have had all season. The defense must step up after the last two weeks and can’t allow Prescott and Elliott to have big games under their watch or it will be curtains for this season very early.
