With the kind of historic rivalry we have with Dallas, how has it been 33 years since our last primetime game...
one factor is the 2 teams really havent been simultaneously good since like what, 1997? so the chances of them meeting each other dwindled to once every 2-3 years when the west plays the NFCE....tho even when they were the two juggernauts in the early-mid 90's their games were usually protected by CBS/FOX as the game of the week
sucks cos it prevented more meetings in the heydey like aforementioned game in 1990 (Niners were in the midst of their three-peat attempt, Dallas were up and coming and already had their "triplets"....it was the one and only meeting of Montana vs Aikman)
Niners are due to beat Dallas though.....hate that we've lost the last 3 to them (05, 08, 2011) with the two in Candlestick we jump out to early lead only to blow it late and lose in OT
