With all of the drama surrounding Ezekiel Elliott Dallas franchise now really needs to focus on the upcoming match vs. 49ers. Week 7 of the 2017 NFL Season is upon us, and the 0-6 Niners host the game at Levi’s stadium. Dallas Cowboys need to approach this game carefully despite 49ers lousy start to the season.
The America’s Team has their problems, both of the field and in the defense, but they are still favorites to win this match. They are 6 point favorites while the over/under margin is set at 47. Last year Cowboys were 1 point favorites, and they duly delivered. The only time they were more prominent favorites than for upcoming game was against Browns last season. They had 7 point advantage on the night and provided by winning 35-10. So like we said, 49ers have a 0-6 score, but they have lost five consecutive matches by 3 or fewer points. They are not to be underestimated.
The Cowboys plan will rely mostly on their attack. The combination of hard running game and accurate passing from Prescott should do the trick for them. Elliott needs a clear head which he can have now that he knows that he will play at least until October 30. Their shaky defense will be stronger after Sean Lee coming back, which could prove as a difference maker. With David Irving finally back from suspension, Cowboys will have their secondary at full power for the first time this season. The only player that is doubtful for the game is Chidobe Awuzie.
The 49ers parted ways with their long-serving linebacker Navorro Bowman, and their defense will now gather around rookies Foster and Thomas. Also, they will replace veteran quarterback Bryan Hoyer with C.J. Beathard. The rookie debuted vs. Redskins with 36 attempts, 19 completion and 245 yards for a touchdown. The man will come as a surprise for Cowboys gameplan, and San Francisco 49ers will hope that he could shift the game in their direction.
We predict a match with more than 47 points. Cowboys WIN – 37-30.
