Those from San Francisco who met with the media this week were very complimentary of their NFC Wild Card opponents, especially when it came to the type of plays the Cowboys put on tape. This will be the eighth time the 49ers and Cowboys have met in the postseason, tied for the second most of any matchup in the Super Bowl era to the nine games between the Rams and Cowboys. “They have stars all over the field,” said 49ers tight end George Kittle. “Never call me that.

“I love watching Dallas film.  NEVER MISS A SNAP: Consider this your historical refresher of just how huge 49ers-Cowboys playoff matchups used to be. There will be virtual reality slime cannons exploding after touchdowns, just as there were in last year’s first Nickelodeon co-broadcast with partner CBS.” Kittle wasn’t only talking about the defense he’ll be facing on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. He went through a laundry list worth of analysis, from calling Cowboys running back Tony Pollard “incredible,” to saying how excited he was to go up against rookie sensation Micah Parsons. 1981 NFC championship game ('The Catch') The most famous 49ers-Cowboys playoff showdown and one of the greatest games in NFL history  is known simply as"The Catch. Parsons, in particular, was a topic of conversation this week. And somewhere after the game, the winning coach will likely get a slime bath. On Friday, Parsons became only the fourth rookie linebacker since 1970 to earn first-team All-Pro honors, doing so in a season that’s seen him make an impact at all three levels of the Cowboys defense.  The celebrated highlight of this back-and-forth clash came when wide receiver Dwight Clark made a leaping catch in the back of the end zone for the winning score in the game's final minute. “The game tickets are sold out so we’re trying to get the standing (room only).

49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel was asked what was so striking about Parsons when he turned on the film this week. “Uhm, what doesn’t strike me?” McDaniel responded. OK, I obviously haven’t put on Nickelodeon lately. “This is the first time I’ve got to study him. I’m alive, so I’ve heard about him. He’s been noisy this year and he’s been very impressive. CBS, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, will do a traditional broadcast of the game featuring dad jokes and lots of schematic analysis.” On Sunday, his San Jose based group will be hosting a tailgate for 250-plus traveling fans.

I think it’s a great match, working with Dan Quinn, and they’re getting a ton out of him. He’s a multi-tool defender that can win on the line of scrimmage and track from the linebacker position. He gives people problems and I can see why I knew his name before I studied him and saw him play. The first down marking line will be slime green instead of yellow.” On Sunday, McDaniel and the 49ers will get the chance to see Parsons in person for the first time, and the Cowboys for the first time this season. Injury watch:  From a health perspective, the Cowboys will be getting San Francisco’s best shot. Never.

The 49ers’ final injury report included only four questionable players: nickel linebacker Marcel Harris (Achilles), safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee), linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair (knee) and punter Mitch Wishnowsky (concussion). There will be some freestyle rapping by sideline reporter Dylan Gilmer of Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan. Wishnowsky hasn’t cleared protocols after suffering a concussion in last week’s win over the Los Angeles Rams. That forced kicker Robbie Gould into emergency kicking duties and fullback Kyle Juszczyk into the important role of field goal holder. The 49ers did sign punter Ryan Winslow to the practice squad in case Wishnowsky doesn’t get out of concussion protocol. Yes, it’s an attempt to draw a younger generation of viewers to the NFL. 49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams, the highest-graded player by Pro Football Focus ever this season and a first-team All-Pro honoree, is expected to play after missing last week’s game with an elbow injury..
