The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has activated running back Trey Sermon off of injured reserve ahead of Sunday's Wild-Card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

It was a hard-fought battle, and it wasn't a pretty victory. However, in the playoffs, a win is a win, and the San Francisco 49ers escaped AT&T Stadium, knocking off the Cowboys 23-17. San Francisco led 23-7 heading into the fourth quarter, but miscues kept the home-team Cowboys in the game until the end. It took a bizarre final play, with the help of some poor play-calling from Dallas coach Mike McCarthy, to extend the 49ers' season. After the game, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch went around the locker room, congratulating their players. Then the coach addressed his team. "I'm at a loss for words," Shanahan said. "I'm exhausted, and I didn't even play. I appreciate you guys so much. All the guys that went down in that
