The 49ers meet the Cowboys in the NFL playoffs for the second straight year, and this time, the divisional-round matchup is at Levi’s Stadium.
The San Francisco 49ers absolutely need to wear their 1994 throwback uniforms for Sunday’s contest against the visiting Dallas Cowboys.
After all, things are starting to look a lot like the first half of the 1990s back when the rivalry between the Niners and Cowboys was at its peak.
Granted, Dallas had a tendency to spoil San Francisco’s playoff runs in subsequent years back in the opening seasons of that decade, yet quarterback Steve Young and an all-star cast of players finally bucked that trend during that 1994 season en route to the franchise’s fifth Super Bowl championship.
Now, armed with a chance of eliminating Dallas in the playoffs for a second consecutive year, the 49ers are hoping the 2022 season winds up producing that elusive sixth Lombardi Trophy.
Having dispatched the Cowboys in the Wild Card round a season ago, the Niners now look to do the same against a motivated Dallas squad that’ll hope to pull off an upset at Levi’s Stadium in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
Fortunately, San Francisco is notably healthy for the postseason matchup.
49ers injury report vs. Cowboys, divisional round
It’s weird to think the 49ers have actually enjoyed a relatively clean slate of health the last few weeks, yet that should bode well for head coach Kyle Shanahan for as long as the Niners are still in Super Bowl contention.
Only two players were ruled out for Sunday’s game:
- QB Jimmy Garoppolo (foot)
- CB Ambry Thomas (ankle)
Garoppolo, of course, has been out since Week 14 with the injury he suffered the previous week, and that has led to rookie quarterback Brock Purdy becoming quite the phenom since taking over under center.
Purdy will look to keep his hot streak alive against quarterback Dak Prescott, who nearly pulled off the win over San Francisco in the Wild Card game a year ago but ran out of time, quite literally.
