49ERS VS. COWBOYS IN WEEK 5 OF NFL SEASON
These are the types of games you live for as professional athletes. A 4-0 team cruising past the opposition each week and composed on all three fronts vs. a should-be 4-0 side that too often succumbs to unexpected-yet-predictable slip-ups. A rivalry backed by years of iconic and magical moments.
San Francisco comes into this game averaging 31.2 points per game having scored at least 30 in each of its four wins. Dallas has scored just one point less (125 to 124) after a 16-point showing in Week 3 that resulted in a road loss to the Arizona Cardinals. But the Cowboys bounced back strong amid Trevon Diggs' ACL injury and demolished the New England Patriots 38-3, whereas the 49ers are riding the Christian McCaffrey wave after his incredible four-touchdown outing at home vs. Arizona.
