m. A week after Jimmy Garoppolo saved the 49ers, the 49ers saved Jimmy Garoppolo. The Cowboys lost in overtime to the Raiders, 36-33. When Dak Prescott made his ill-fated 17-yard scramble to the 49ers’ 24-yard line and time expired, the 49ers had held on for a 23-17 wild card playoff win Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. Chiefs With Scoop and Score On the ensuing 49ers possession, the Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence was called for defensive holding for an automatic first down. It was a game the 49ers had under control, or so it appeared, with a 23-7 lead with 5:50 left in the third quarter and the Cowboys getting buried against a physical opponent combined with the weight of their own mistakes. 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. A 26-yard cutback run by Deebo Samuel had given the 49ers a 16-point lead. 13 in Los Angeles.

and television shots found Dallas fans actually in tears in anticipation of an inevitable defeat. “I love watching Dallas film. A false start by Trent Williams then negated a first down by Garoppolo, forcing a San Francisco punt. The play was set up by an interception by K’waun Williams in a pass intended for Cedrick Wilson. It was within Garoppolo’s power to put the Cowboys out of their misery. 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. Instead, he extended an invitation for Dallas to rejoin the game with three big mistakes that could have doomed the 49ers. As the Cowboys attempted to line up, the referee ran from the backfield and collided with the offensive line while trying to spot the ball on the 24-yard line. “It was an emotional game, the highs and lows of it,” Garoppolo said. 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. Nearly 100,000 fans are expected, and while the home team wants a “white out” with the crowd’s attire, 49ers fans are sure to flock in red jerseys.

“I never felt like it was getting away from us. I always felt we were in control of the game. “Uhm, what doesn’t strike me?” McDaniel responded. The winner of the playoff matchups between San Francisco and Dallas has gone on to win the Super Bowl on five occasions. I guess we made for some good TV again.” It’s fair to say Garoppolo may have been the only man on the 49ers sideline that wasn’t concerned. I’m alive, so I’ve heard about him. After the Samuel touchdown, with the 49ers facing third-and-10 at their own 24-yard line, Brandon Aiyuk left Trevon Diggs in the dust and broke wide open down the left sideline. “Now we’re on the on road, guaranteed almost for the next three games, to get back to where we want to go.

If Garoppolo sticks the pass, it would have put the 49ers right back in scoring position with 2:31 to play in the quarter. I think it’s a great match, working with Dan Quinn, and they’re getting a ton out of him. He missed it. By a lot. He gives people problems and I can see why I knew his name before I studied him and saw him play. Flashbacks to the missed post to Emmanuel Sanders in Super Bowl LIV against Kansas City were impossible to avoid. Dallas drove 37 yards in 11 plays for a 51-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein to get within 23-10. Injury watch: From a health perspective, the Cowboys will be getting San Francisco’s best shot. Of their Super Bowl 22 starters two years ago, 13 will be in this Sunday’s lineup, and, perhaps the most unexpected of them all is quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who’s fended off top draft pick Trey Lance and a Dec.

The next mistake could have been his farewell to the franchise assuming Trey Lance takes over as expected next season. On second-and-10 from the 44, Garoppolo rolled right, spotted Trent Sherfield and instead threw it into the waiting arms of cornerback Anthony Brown. Wishnowsky hasn’t cleared protocols after suffering a concussion in last week’s win over the Los Angeles Rams. Brown gratefully accepted the gift and returned it 23 yards to the 49ers’ 28-yard line. Dallas officially back in it. The 49ers did sign punter Ryan Winslow to the practice squad in case Wishnowsky doesn’t get out of concussion protocol. “The interception just got away from me, shot it high,” Garoppolo said. “Run it again! Run it again!” Kittle bellowed to the 49ers’ sideline during their ground assault in the 27-10 rout of Minnesota.

“To B..A., another tough one. Those are the ones you’ve just got to hit. Those are the easy layup ones you’ve got to make. Spelling him with offensive catalyst Deebo Samuel is no longer a novelty, and Samuel’s ability to turn the corner with his bullish style has the Cowboys on high alert.
