The 49ers are the hottest team in football, having won 11 straight games. They’ll try to make it 12 straight when they host the Cowboys on Sunday, with a spot in the NFC Championship on the line.
Brock Purdy’s legend continues to grow. In his first career playoff game, “Mr. Irrelevant” of the 2022 Draft class led his team to a big win against the Seahawks last week, going 18 of 30 through the air with 332 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. It continued the rookie quarterback’s meteoric rise, as his team is now just one game away from the conference championship game.
His task will become much more difficult this week as he faces a fearsome Cowboys defense. In the wild card round, Dallas terrorized Tom Brady en route to a dominant 31-14 win, and Mike McCarthy’s team will undoubtedly look to get after Purdy early and often.

Dak Prescott had a monster game in Tampa as well, going 25 of 33 for 305 yards, 5 total touchdowns, and 0 turnovers. However, he’ll have to be at his best to beat this Niners defense. Throughout the regular season, San Francisco allowed the fewest total yards and points per game to opposing teams.
Since 1995, the Cowboys have not advanced to the NFC Championship game. However, until last weekend, they hadn’t won a road playoff game since 1993. Will they be able to break both streaks this year?
