Bottom LineA lot of people are down on the 49ers this year due to their losses on defense, but there should be an uptick on the offensive side. Kaepernick remains the big question mark since he has to prove he's improved with his progressions. Yet, even with these issues SF should have enough to beat the Cowboys by 3.
Dallas had a horrific defense last year, yet did nothing to address it in the offseason. In fact, they lost their best players on that side of the ball, so they are in for a long, long season. They might be able to put up points, but I don't think they can compensate enough against a top NFC team.
NFL Pick: SF -3.
