Jerry Jones hoping Cowboys, 49ers meet again in playoffs

Oct 5, 2022 at 5:56 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys do not play each other during the regular season. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hopes his team has an opportunity to face the Niners in the playoffs, though.

As is often the case, the Cowboys' 2021 playoff run ended after one game. This time, it was a 23-17 home loss to the 49ers. San Francisco went on to beat the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field before falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Rams in the NFC title game.

Next up for the Cowboys are the Rams at SoFi Stadium. So you can bet Jones was watching Monday night's bout between the Rams and the 49ers.

"Both those are good teams," Jones said during his regular interview on the "Shan and RJ" show, per Logan Mullen of 95.7 The Game. "I thought last year we had a chance and could compete against those teams, we didn't get it done against San Francisco last year.

"I hope we get a chance to put this team up against them when it really counts, in the playoffs. Those are two teams you should watch, you should have your eye on because somehow we've got to get by them to get where we want to go."

The Cowboys, who lost starting quarterback Dan Prescott to a thumb injury in Week 1's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are 3-1 heading into their matchup against the Rams. While Prescott still struggles with properly gripping the football, Jones has not yet ruled the quarterback out for Sunday's game in Inglewood, California.

The Rams are 2-2 after their 24-9 loss to the 49ers at Levi's Stadium on Monday night.

49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings has had a quieter year statistically than some may have expected, considering where he was at the end of the 2021 season. But just as he did in 2021, Jennings stepped up in the clutch Sunday, giving the 49ers multiple huge plays while helping them secure a 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. After catching 16 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns over the final five games of the 2021 regular season, Jennings entered this weekend with 30 catches for 220 yards and zero touchdowns for 2022. But on Sunday he caught six passes for 49 yards while hauling in the game's only touchdown. Jennings also made a key third down catch on the game's final drive that helped run out the clock and seal the win. Jennings' clutch performance on

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk focused on improving, capitalizing on opportunities

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has caught six-or-more passes for 81-or-more receiving yards in each of his last four games. He's hauled in three touchdown passes in those performances and nearly hauled in a fourth this past Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. Aiyuk is on pace for his first 1,000-yard season and believes he is getting more comfortable as the season progresses. That's bad news for opposing defenses. "Just trying to continue to get better," Aiyuk told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I also feel as if, throughout the games that we've played, I've left a lot of plays out there. So that's my main thing, just trying to capitalize on every single play and every opportunity that I get, and then, hopefully, we'll be in a better spot at that

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had just one catch for 21 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. It was an impressive effort, though. One person inside the organization even believes it may have been the play that turned everything around in the game for the Niners. The team didn't seem to be clicking for much of the first half. Kittle made the catch and then refused to go down 😤 @gkittle46📺: #LACvsSF on
