49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to



Fred Warner on 49ers-Cowboys: 'It's going to be a battle'

Everyone is getting pretty excited for Sunday's playoff clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. Players on both teams are too young to know what this rivalry once meant to fans. However, they know that one team's season will end this weekend. Many are saying that no team—not even the NFC East champions—wants to face the 49ers right now. They could be among the playoffs' most dangerous teams. "They're very confident," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Tuesday. "They've won some big games. They've won it against some good teams. They play in a tough division over there. … They'll be a real, real mess to deal with out here Sunday." Star linebacker Fred Warner knows none of that matters regarding Sunday's game. The



Fred Warner talks rookie 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans: "DeMeco is as great as they come"

With an impressive Sunday afternoon 27-24 win against the Los Angeles Rams, it seems like the 49ers are reaching the expectations fans had for the team before the season. Sitting at a 10-7 record with the 6th seed in the NFC, they now look to face the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday. With the 49ers being as dangerous as teams come in the NFL currently, it's hard to remember that, just prior to the season, San Francisco went through an overhaul in terms of organization on the coaching and leadership staff. Former pass-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and, most importantly, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh both departed for the Jets, leaving huge vacancies to fill during the offseason. Fortunately, the Niners elevated Mike McDaniel to fill an offensive coordinator role and former



What the return of Trey Sermon means to the 49ers' backfield

The San Francisco 49ers hit the road this Sunday to face the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. What is surprising, and quite frankly a pleasant change, the 49ers are the healthiest they've been in recent memory. Rookie running back Trey Sermon looks to be back this week since landing on IR in early December for an ankle injury. So, what kind of impact will Sermon have to the 49er's backfield? Honestly, probably none. He would be an added depth piece sure but will more than likely find himself on special team's units which is still something. The 49ers back field has been a bit of mystery this season. Rookie running back Elijah Mitchell has been the work horse for the 49ers, rushing for 963 yards on 207 carries and five
