Is "One-and-Done" a Disappointing Postseason for the Dallas Cowboys?
Hindsight is 20/20, and it is really easy after a loss to say that you could see it coming. Fresh off of a new contract, Dak Prescott has the Dallas Cowboys back in the playoffs. This week on The Sports Grind, Calvin shared his belief that drawing the San Francisco 49ers in the first round is the worst matchup they could've gotten.
In Hour 1 on Tuesday, Calvin called out "Cowboys Nation". Hosting the 49ers in Frisco, Texas, would a first-round loss be a disappointing end for Dallas' season? Or, do you subscribe to the belief that the 49ers are too tough of a matchup for this Cowboys team and not fault the team for getting bounced?
All-time, Dallas is 19-17-1 against San Francisco, winners of their last three contests, and six of the last seven. In the postseason, the Cowboys hold the series advantage 5-2.
Saturday's game will be just the second time in Jimmy Garoppolo's career that he has faced Dallas, and his first time with the 49ers. Playing with the New England Patriots in 2015, Garoppolo attempted two passes for -2 yards in the Patriots' 30-6 blowout win.
When the Cowboys defeated San Francisco 41-31 last season, both Prescott and Garopollo were on injured reserve. In the two games Prescott has played against the 49ers, he is 2-0 with 479 total yards passing and five touchdowns. In the 2017 matchup, he also added a rushing touchdown to his resume in The Bay.
