The Landry Hat staff of contributors preview and give their predictions of the Week Four matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers.
This weekend, the Dallas Cowboys travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers at home. The Landry Hat’s staff of contributors has gathered together this week to give their predictions of the Week Four matchup.

Prediction: Finally, the Dallas Cowboys pass defense gets a break from defending game breaking receivers like Odell Beckham Jr., DeSean Jackson, and Alshon Jeffery.
San Francisco’s leading receiver Jeremy Kerley has 114 yards all season, which would be 5th best on the Dallas roster. Their passing offense (177.3 ypg) is the worst in the NFL.
The 49ers 11th ranked rushing offense (116.7 ypg) is formidable, though Dallas’ 10th ranked run defense only allows 89.3 ypg.
Not only will Dallas finally dominate an opposing offense, they’ll have a solid day both running and passing on offense.
San Francisco held the awful Rams offense to 183 yards in the opener. Since they’ve allowed 947 total yards and 83 points to Carolina and Seattle.
Overconfidence can lead to a trap game. Yet with a rookie QB and RB fueling the offense and a defense aching for a dominant performance…Dallas stays aggressive and handles business on the road.
Final Score: Dallas Cowboys 33, San Francisco 49ers 16
