After a prime-time win at home against the Chicago Bears, the Dallas Cowboys will be traveling in week four of the NFL season. And they get to take on an old foe, as the team will be in San Francisco to take on Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are coming off their second straight drumming, having lost in Seattle by the score of 37-18 in week three.
The Cowboys may or may not be without Dez Bryant, who is dealing with a hairline fracture in his knee. But that should not make much of an impact. Cole Beasley has been the team’s best receiver thus far, leading the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards. Rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot have both looked decent. Nothing spectacular, but enough to keep the Cowboys competitive. The club has won its sole road game so far as well, beating the Washington Redskins in week two in DC. And if you thought their week three opponent the Chicago Bears was an easy week, this week should be more of the same.
The San Francisco 49ers are not a good football team. At all. Blaine Gabbert is not an NFL quarterback, and how he has a starting job is beyond me. The team has no wide receivers. Their defense has allowed 46 and 37 points the last two weeks. And their head coach is simply put, a buffoon. (Just look how the Eagles are fairing now that good ole Chip is gone. Now take a look at how good ole Chip is doing in the Bay area).
The only bright spots for the Niners come in the form of Carlos Hyde and the fact that they are home. Hyde can only do so much, though. The team did shutout the Rams in week one at home, before getting destroyed two straight weeks on the road. Now they are back home for a week, but will it be what they need to pull out another win? Simply put, no. Cowboys will take down the 49ers, and Chip will fall to 1-3.
