One of football’s great rivalries will be rekindled on Sunday, this time with a spot in the NFC championship on the line.
The Cowboys (13-5) exorcised a few of their playoff demons in their wild card drubbing of the Buccaneers, a game in which starting quarterback Dak Prescott was, for the most part, flawless.
It’s one thing doing that against Tampa Bay. It’s a whole different proposition doing that against the league’s best defense, something the 49ers (14-4) have proved time and time again.
San Francisco has real Super Bowl hopes and the sort of loaded roster capable of getting the job done. Brock Purdy’s been a force, the defense is as stout as they come, and did we mention they have Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey, two of the most difficult covers in the league?
Things are looking up for San Fran, both in the present and in the future. What better way to prove it than beating its long-time NFC rivals — a team that shares its status as one of the league’s most iconic brands.
