49ers-Cowboys: How to watch, stream, and listen to the Wild-Card matchup

Jan 12, 2022 at 8:07 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers return to the postseason for the second time in three seasons. They will travel to Arlington, Texas, and take on the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card Round. The two teams have previously met in the postseason seven times, with the 49ers winning the most recent matchup, a 38-28 victory in the 1994 NFC Championship Game.

The 49ers enter the postseason following a dramatic 27-24 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 18. The team finished with a 10-7 regular-season record. The 49ers overcame a deficit of 17-or-more points for the fourth time in the last 30 years and the first time since they erased a 20-point deficit at the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011. WR Deebo Samuel hauled in four catches for 95 yards, adding eight carries for 45 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He also threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to WR Jauan Jennings. Jennings registered career highs with six receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns, while WR Brandon Aiyuk finished with six catches for a team-leading 107 receiving yards.

Defensively, DL Arik Armstead racked up seven tackles and a career-high 2.5 sacks on the day. DL D.J. Jones added 1.0 sack, with DL Nick Bosa, DL Arden Key, and LB Fred Warner each adding 0.5 sack. CB Emmanuel Moseley and CB Ambry Thomas intercepted Rams QB Matthew Stafford, with Thomas sealing the win for the 49ers in overtime.

K Robbie Gould connected on two field-goal attempts, including a 24-yarder in overtime. He also punted twice because Mitch Wishnowsky left the game with a concussion. Gould finished with an average of 45.0 yards per punt, including one downed inside the 20-yard line.

49ers Notebook: Brock Purdy's draft surprise, Tariq Castro-Fields on his NFL readiness, and more

By Kirk Larrabee
May 12

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said

I'm not worried about 49ers' Trey Lance...and you shouldn't be either

By Marc Adams
May 20

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade
