A rivalry has rekindled for the playoffs


FRISCO, Texas (Silver Star Nation) – Sunday’s wild card playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys will be the eighth playoff between the two rival NFC teams.

The Cowboys have won five of their previous seven playoffs against San Francisco. This is the first post-season meeting in 27 years between the two high-profile brands. In 1995, the 49ers beat the Cowboys in the NFC Championship on their way to Super Bowl XXIX.

Cowboys insider Mickey Spagnola says a trip back up the memory lane would rekindle this rivalry.

The game is at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at AT&T Stadium. The winner will go on to the knockout round and the loser waits until next year.

Both teams are heading into the post-season with momentum. San Francisco essentially starts the Sunday after the season against Los Angeles, needing a win to claim a playoff spot. The 49ers rebounded from a 17-point deficit, beating the Rams in extra time.

The Cowboys have won five of their last six games by just under 20 points a game.
