The biggest game of the coming weekend will happen on Sunday night when the Dallas Cowboys travel to San Francsico to take on the seemingly unstoppable 49ers.
The Buffalo Bills are red-hot and clicking on all cylinders – but most people with eyes can see that it’s the 49ers who are the best team in the NFL, at least at this point.
Even Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can see that. You won’t be getting any trash talk out of old Jerry ahead of this Sunday’s showdown.
“They are, right now, probably the most likely team to go win the Super Bowl, but 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,” Jones stated during an interview on “Shan & RJ” on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
“The bottom line is you’re playing the best, you don’t need the game to tell you you’re playing the best, but you need the game to show you how you stack up against the best,” he continued.
Jerry Jones sees Sunday’s showdown against the San Francisco 49ers as a measuring stick of where the Dallas Cowboys stack up against what he considers the team “most likely” right now to win the Super Bowl.https://t.co/jB5MUJjYIY

The Cowboys past two seasons have ended against the hated Niners, and you can bet that deep down there are very few things than Jerry would love more than to beat San Francisco, especially in their own building.
“A victory on Sunday at San Francisco would be inspiring,” Jones said. (Yeah, it sure would!)
Jones went on to highlight his confidence in the Cowboys physical matchup against the undefeated 49ers and his satisfaction with the team’s defense, adding: “Frankly, this is the best I’ve felt about our offense this year.”
After a dominating 38-3 victory over the New England Patriots, the focus quickly shifted to the upcoming showdown with the 49ers. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott emphasized that the team’s 19-12 loss at Levi’s Stadium in the divisional round last January serves as motivation “every day.”
Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins echoed Prescott’s sentiments, emphasizing the gravity of Sunday’s matchup.
“It’s always a battle going when we’re going against the Niners, and obviously the last two years, they’ve had our number,” Hankins stated. “So, this game means a lot more [to us] than just a regular-season game.”
“Two of the best teams in our [conference], so we’ve got to turn the page and beat the 49ers, man,” he added.
I think I speak for us all when I say I can’t wait for this one.
Who do you think will win?
Either way, it’s still early in the season … In the big picture, who do you think will end up being more dangerous come January?
