If you haven't heard, the Dallas Cowboys have a big game this week. While they still play upper-echelon teams like the Bills, Dolphins and Eagles (twice) this season, the San Francisco 49ers are their Kryptonite.
While this isn't a must win for the Cowboys, Dak Prescott and Co. need to prove to themselves before the playoffs that they can beat the 49ers. We already know they can hang and there won't be an outrage if Dallas loses on a last-minute field goal, but the importance of winning this game can't be understated.
Both the Cowboys and 49ers are coming off comfortable wins. They rank second and third in point differential, respectivelly. They're first and third in points allowed, and second and fifth in total yards allowed per game.
There are a number of other stats that underline how great both teams are. Fans should expect a great game and here's how you can watch it all unfold.
