The more I study the matchup against the niners, the more I think this game is going to be a shootout. Both teams have good offenses. Both teams also have big play-making talents on defense. I‘m expecting the point total to be in the 50s. It will likely take at least 30 to win this game.
Here why I believe this game will be high scoring:
- In the last 4 games the 49ers have played, they average giving up 22.5 points. IMO, Dallas can generate more than 22 points.
- And despite their defensive talent, the niners have given up 34 to a raiders team playing a backup QB, 20 to an 8-8-1 Wash team and 23 to a 9-8 Seattle team in their last 3.
- The niners offense has averaged nearly 400 yards per game last 4 games.
- In their last 4 games they are averaging 38 points per game.
Unless the niners have multiple turnovers, it’s going to be hard to hold them under 28 points. We can but the defense is going to have to play lights out and force the rookie QB to make plays. IMO, Brock Purdy has been playing better than he really is. Saw him play 5-6 games in college and he was definitely hot/cold. He’s due for a bad game IMO.
I believe if we can score 30+ we will win this game. But I expect it to be close.
