One of the NFL's greatest playoff rivalries is back Sunday as the Dallas Cowboys take on the San Francisco 49ers from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in the NFC Wild Card round.

They faced each other from 1992-1994 with the Cowboys winning two of three (1992, 1993). The winner of those games ended up winning the Super Bowl (Cowboys 92-93, 49ers 1994). 

The Cowboys (13-4) return to the playoffs for the first time since 2018. They come in on fire, having won five of their last six, including a 51-26 drubbing of the Philadelphia Eagles in the season finale last week. The Cowboys are led by quarterback Dak Prescott, who threw for 4,449 yards and 37 touchdowns. Running back Ezekiel Elliott lead the NFC East champion with 1,002 yards rushing and ten touchdowns. 

The 49ers (10-7) snuck into the postseason with a come-from-behind win by going to Los Angeles and beating the NFC West champion Rams 27-24, to end the regular season winning four of their last five. After not making the playoffs in 2021, the 49ers return to the tournament for the 28th time. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo returned to the form when he led the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV by throwing for 3,810 yards and 20 touchdowns.
