Bold Prediction One: will throw for 325 plus yards and three touchdowns.

Prescott will need to play very well on Sunday because will struggle once again against a very good 49ers rush . Prescott can do this against this 49er .

Dak has played well when the lights are the brightest, and the Cowboys will need it this week.

Bold Prediction Two: The Cowboys pick off Jimmy Garoppolo two times.

The Cowboys will need to stop the 49ers rushing attack and have Garoppolo beat them in this game. Garoppolo has thrown an interception in every 49er's loss this season. He has nine interceptions in the team's seven losses.

My bold prediction: The D Line comes up with at least 1, maybe 2 INT’s. I expect DLaw, Gregory, Armstrong and Parsons to take a page from the Eagles playbook and stop their pass rush early to get their hands up into the throwing lanes. The Eagles had a lot of success with that early last week.

Which leads me to my 2nd bold prediction: Dak throws at least 1 INT to a D lineman. The 9ers have no doubt watched how effective the Eagles were at it last week. They’ve got even better pass rushers than Philthy. I think at least one of them times it right and snags a low or late Dak throw.


Wow Kevin, if you’re predictions come to reality, Cowboys win in a BLOWOUT. I don’t see a blowout here.

Kevin Rice

Yeah I was toning in my optimism for this one lol.

@vam lol that’s why they are called bold predictions. I was toning in my optimism for this one. Bold prediction four Deebo goes for 150 total yards


Go Cowboys, Beat the 49ers

Bryant Mastrangelo

Go 9ers. 38-28

Daniel Flores

Niners aren’t from the NFC Least, cowboys are going to have their hands full, they won’t have the time to wipe the blood from their mouth. I think the Niners show em how it’s done in the Best football conference

Bruce Mullin

Well stated Daniel! Kittle and Deebo are threats the Cowboys have not seen this season.


All your bold predictions are just wishful thinking, I’ll tell you a bold prediction: the game will be decided in the last play by Cowboys kicker Zeurlein, say a 45 yard FG, either he makes it and we move on to Tamba Bay or he doesn’t and we go home.
