Primetime game No. 3: Cowboys @ 49ers

The Dallas Cowboys sure have to be pissed off at the 49ers after being eliminated by their longtime rivals in back-to-back postseasons.

Heck, perhaps it's vengeance from the Niners after Dallas eliminated San Francisco a bunch in the playoffs, first back in the early 1970s and then again in the early 1990s.

Either way, the 49ers and Cowboys make for good television again, and that's ultimately what will help determine a worthy primetime matchup, likely one on Sunday Night Football down the stretch when both teams are jockeying for playoff positioning.

Dallas is also a hot contender for a conference championship, too, so the game will almost assuredly carry more implications than just a grudge match.
