1. San Fransisco 49ers

I did have a hard time not flipping the Eagles and 49ers here, but I ultimately landed on the 49ers taking the top spot as the most dangerous rushing attack the Cowboys will face this season. Both teams are good but the Eagles are dealing with play-caller changes while the 49ers are not. With Kyle Shanahan calling the plays and having seen how well the Cowboys and Eagles can match up against this offense, you know the creative head coach is going to come up with new wrinkles in order to stop that from happening again.

He has the personnel to do as well with a big and mean offensive line blocking for Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell, Kyle Juszczyk, and the Swiss army knife receiver Deebo Samuel who can do it all. Shanahan has always been able to continue tweaking his offense to give teams formations and plays they haven't seen before and seeing just how close they got to the Super Bowl last season, you know he's going to come up with new ways to deploy his already effective rushing attack.
