NFL: 49ers vs Cowboys Preview

on

49ersThe San Francisco 49ers are set to kick off their 2014 regular season in a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in a game that both teams are looking to win in order to get their season started on a positive note.

The 49ers come into this matchup after losing in the 2013 NFC Championship to eventual Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, and losing to the Baltimore Ravens in the Superbowl the year prior. The 49ers are looking to continue to enjoy the success that they have had over the last couple of years, and in order to do so will have to compete against the tough NFC West. The 49ers biggest competition in the west will come from the defending champion Seahawks, but they will also have to face an Arizona Cardinals team that has been resurgent last year.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, are looking to lose their reputation as a team that loses the biggest game of the regular season forcing them to miss the playoffs. Over the last few years, the Cowboys have lost in the last game of the regular season, forcing them out of a playoff spot. The Tony Romo led Cowboys have to compete in the NFC East, where their biggest competition will come from the high powered Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys must also deal with the Washington Redskins and New York Giants if they hope to win the division.

The line for this game is set in favor of the 49ers with San Francisco at -5, while the over/under is at 52 for the game.

The 49ers come into this game with a defense potent enough to shut down the Cowboys for much of the game, helping them earn a victory. 49ers win this one 38-17.
