Blaine Gabbert is in serious jeopardy of losing his starting job after week 3, and will need a big rebound in his performance to hold off Chip Kelly deferring to Colin Kaepernick.
Kickoff is set for 1:25PM ET with Gabbert starting opposite Dak Prescott, who has helped lead the Dallas Cowboys to a 2-1 record on the year.
Dak Prescott has performed quite favorably while filling in for the injured incumbent starter Tony Romo in Dallas.
He may be staking his claim on the starting role when the 37-year old Romo calls it a career.
The rookie out of Mississippi State has completed 66 of his 99 pass attempts thus far in his young career, and currently owns a passer rating of 93.3- a strong start in his first NFL action.
He has only thrown for one TD however, while running in for two.
Ezekiel Elliot was the biggest name rookie entering the year by a country mile, and despite his slow start in his first two games, he turned it on in week-3 while rushing for 140 yards on 30 attempts.
The 4th overall pick from this year’s draft will look to duplicate that effort on Sunday in San Fran.
The Dallas defence has not been good so far this year, allowing 60 points across their three games and allowing at least 20+ points in each game played while recording just four sacks.
Sean Lee leads the team with 25 total tackles, and the captain of the Cowboys’ Defense will look to get his team on track in a good matchup against a bad QB.
San Francisco 49ers
Blaine Gabbert is not a good QB, nor should he be a starter in the NFL in all likelihood. He grades out at a career passer rating of 71.6, and now in his 26-years old season, his mark is down to 68.6 on the year.
Over the past two weeks, Gabbert has combined for a rating of 58.4 and a QBR of 40.5, suggesting a change is needed in the Bay area.
He failed to register a TD in week-3, and threw for just 119 yards, granted it was against a stingy Seattle defense.
Carlos Hyde is the workhorse back in San Francisco, and while he’s only rushed for 225 total yards, he’s recorded 85+ in 2-of-3 games played and is finding the end zone with regularity.
Hyde has 4 TDs through 3 games so far this season and will continue to get a ton of work based on their Quarterback play.
San Francisco’s defense started off the year with a tremendous 28-0 shutout win over the LA Rams.
Since then, however, they have allowed a total of 83 points and the team has a total point differential of -10.
The Niners have just 8 tackles for a loss on the year, three of which have been tallied by NaVorro Bowman.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Dak Prescott has thrown for 220+ yards in every game of his 3-game career

- Ezekiel Elliot is 3rd overall in rushing yards in the NFL with his total of 274.
- Blaine Gabbert sits in 27th overall in yards thrown amongst QBs
- The Dallas Cowboys are 1-0 on the road, while the 49ers are 1-0 at home
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Dallas Moneyline
I have zero faith in Blaine Gabbert, zero… he has not given any indication that he is a competent enough QB to be an NFL starter. While the Niners return to Levi Stadium where they earned a strong victory in week-1, they will face a much better offense here.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Dallas 24 – San Francisco 20
With the Cowboys being on the road with rookie QB under center, I think it will be a close game on Sunday.
That being said, I still expect Dallas to boost their record to 3-1 and help prompt the QB change that needs to happen in San Fran.
