This past Monday when the Dallas Cowboys faced off against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the team was able to quiet the haters winning their first playoff road game in 30 years and doing it in a convincing fashion. They’ve now set the stage for a rematch against the team that knocked them out of last year’s playoffs in the San Francisco 49ers.
This game for the Cowboys is about much more than getting revenge against a team that beat them on their home turf in the playoffs. It’s about bucking the label of a team that isn’t physical enough mentally and physically when punched in the mouth by a team as physical as the 49ers.
The amount of focus on the task ahead was apparent according to Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy who said that on the trip home the Cowboys’ focus immediately shifted to the 49ers.
The Cowboys players are going to have a short week to get prepared for a rested 49ers team but the team doesn’t think it will have that much of an effect on them, but time will tell there, in the mean time lets take a look at this San Francisco 49ers team and see what we can expect from them this Sunday.
