How to watch 49ers v. Cowboys NFC Divisional Round: TV channel, start time
One game into the playoffs and the 49ers look for real.
San Francisco took care of business in the wild card round Saturday, dominating the Seattle Seahawks, 41-23. The Red & Gold will now get their biggest test in the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas is coming off their own dominant victory over Tampa Bay Monday night, stomping Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, 31-14.
Round 2 of the NFC playoffs will be a rematch of last season’s wild card matchup, when San Francisco beat Dallas on the road, 23-17. The Cowboys hold a one game edge over the Red & Gold, with an all-time record of 19-18-1 against the 49ers. A matchup between two heated rivals, San Francisco views this game as another step towards the ultimate prize of the Lombardi trophy.
“Nobody’s just satisfied with what we’ve done. I didn’t like the way we came out last week that wasn’t representative of who we are, so we can come out better to start the game. We can set the tempo better. We can play with better pad leverage on defense. We can get off of blocks better, we can finish better, so there are always things that we’re pushing our guys to be better at. We’re not satisfied. How can we play our absolute best at the time we need it most and there’s no better time right now. Playoffs, Cowboys, Niners, our defense has to play their absolute best if we want to move forward,” defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said Thursday.
