Since 1960, the NFC rivals have played each other 40 times, including in the playoffs, with results that are as near to a tie as they can get. This Sunday’s game at Levi’s Stadium will be that milestone. The 49ers had a narrow 974-935 advantage in points scored in the whole series, which is knotted 19-19-1.
Dallas has been eliminated from the playoffs by San Francisco in each of the last two seasons, so the Cowboys are undoubtedly seeking retribution.
With an average of 31.3 points scored through four games, the 49ers (5-0), spearheaded by offensive phenom Christian McCaffrey, maybe the hottest club in the NFL.
They will go up against a Cowboys defense that has largely dominated this season.
Owner of the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones is ambivalent about “The Road to the Super Bowl” and which club will take the fast lane. This week, Jones claimed that the 49ers were “likely the most likely team to go win the Super Bowl.”
He also included a “but” in relation to his group.
“But,” Jones added on 105.3 The Fan, “in order for them to get there, they have to go by us, hopefully, two times if that’s the way it falls in the playoffs and we’re in the playoffs, of course.”
The Sunday Night Football game this week will feature a struggle for early NFC supremacy. Levi’s Stadium will kick off the game at 5:20 PT/8:20 ET/7:20 CT.
