Mexico City- Fans will relive one of the oldest and most anticipated rivalries in the NFL this weekend, as the Cowboys and 49ers haven’t met in the playoffs since the mid-1990s.
San Francisco heads into AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday to play the Cowboys, an old postseason acquaintance they haven’t faced in 27 years.
Legends like Joe Montana, Roger Staubach, Tom Landry, Steve Young, Troy Aikman and others have made this matchup one that will stick in the memory of fans.
The two franchises have met seven times in playoff history. In five of them, the winner of the game was crowned in the Super Bowl.
In the reissue of the rivalry, Dak Prescott and Jimmy Garoppolo will be in charge of commanding Dallas and San Francisco, respectively.
Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense have been fueling up perfectly in recent weeks. They managed to close with five wins in the last six games, while Garoppolo and the 49ers managed to get into the Playoffs by winning four of the last five games -two of them in overtime-.
The Texan quarterback is in his sixth season, for some the best of his career. He had 4,449 yards, 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for a 104.2 rating.
Dallas’ last postseason win came in 2018. Dak led them to a Wild Card win, then lost to the Rams in the Divisional, while the 49ers had only qualified once in the past seven seasons.
In 2019 they reached the Super Bowl, where they fell to Kansas City.
