Cowboys vs 49ers Vegas Odds
The Cowboys rewrote the postseason script on Monday by beating the Buccaneers 31-14 in a completely dominant display. It may not be the end Tom Brady would have wanted at Tampa Bay but it was the one he deserved on the night, with his Buccaneers outmatched in every department. There are areas in which Dallas will have to improve when they come up against the 49ers though, especially their kicking. Brett Maher missed his first four extra-point attempts, an unwanted NFL record for his resumé. Quarterback Dak Prescott was almost flawless in his execution vs the Buccaneers, throwing 25/33 completions for 305 yards and 4 touchdowns and adding 24 yards and a touchdown on 7 carries. He took only 1 sack in the game and was given every chance to excel by the Tampa Bay defense, he may not find the 49ers so accommodating.
The 49ers put in their own dominant performance on Saturday in a 23-41 victory over the Seahawks. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy looked every bit the seasoned veteran in his postseason debut, throwing 18 completions for 332 yards and 3 touchdowns and adding 16 yards and a touchdown of his own on 7 carries. RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 119 yards and snared a touchdown pass whilst WR Deebo Samuel posted 133 receiving yards and a score. The San Francisco defense played their part well too, picking up 3 sacks, 1 interception, and a recovered fumble. This 49ers team has proven that even with a rookie quarterback, they are more than capable of being crowned Superbowl champions this year.
Cowboys vs 49ers Prediction
The Cowboys surprised me, and the rest of the world with their dominant victory over the Buccaneers. Counting them out would be foolish so I expect them to make a close game of this one. This 49ers team is a lot better than Tampa Bay though and they may just be the best team in the NFL this season. It’ll be a slugfest of a game, but the 49ers have the edge for me here.
