The 49ers and Cowboys have a rivalry that has cooled in recent years as one or both teams has struggled at times. Both teams have question marks in 2011 and will look to this game to get on track. The 49ers did win last week but they left a lot of points on the board and continued to struggle with a conservative gameplan on offense. The Cowboys looked ready to roll out of New York with a big opening win against the Jets but Tony Romo imploded in the fourth quarter. A win would be huge for both teams at this early juncture. Let's hope the 49ers can take care of business.
