The NFC Divisional Round will feature a pair of long-time rivals facing off for the second straight postseason tournament. The San Francisco 49ers will host the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional Round a year removed from beating them in Dallas in the Wild Card Round. The game is scheduled for Sunday evening on Fox with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.
The 49ers finished the season 13-4 and won the NFC West. They beat the Seahawks 41-23 on Saturday, behind three Brock Purdy passing touchdowns and 119 rushing yards from Christian McCaffrey. The Cowboys finished 12-5 and claimed the top wild card berth. They beat the Bucs on Monday to close out Wild Card weekend. Dak Prescott shined, throwing for four touchdowns and rushing in a fifth in a dominating win.
The last time the 49ers and Cowboys last played consecutive seasons in the playoffs was 1993-1995. All three games took place in the NFC Championship. Dallas won the first two games and San Francisco won the third.
