Momentum is shifting towards Dallas’ favor

Despite starting their drive on the Cowboys’ 47-yard line, the 49ers immediately went three-and-out.

During the regular season, San Francisco ranked fourth in the NFL in points per drive on possessions starting in opponent territory (3.96), per TruMedia

This postseason, they have now mustered two field goals on four such drives (1.5 points per drive).

After his fumble set up the Cowboys’ game-tying field goal, Ray-Ray McCloud bounced right back and returned the ensuing kickoff 53 yards.

The 53-yard kickoff return was the longest of McCloud’s five-year NFL career.

All tied at 9-9

Big break for the Cowboys as Ray-Ray McCloud is stripped on the punt return and Dallas recovered. Cowboys couldn’t punch it in, but Brett Maher connected on the 25-yard field goal to tie the game 9-9.

Dallas has now scored 119 points off turnovers this season, most in the NFL.

Tony Pollard (ankle) ruled out for rest of game

Per the Fox broadcast, Cowboys RB Tony Pollard has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a high ankle sprain.

January 22, 2023 at 8:18 PM EST

Perfection

After his three first-half makes, 49ers kicker Robbie Gould is now a perfect 28-for-28 on field goal attempts in his postseason career.

That’s easily the most playoff makes without a miss in NFL history (Chris Boswell is second at 16-for-16).

The 49ers’ pressure has been a big factor tonight.

Will history repeat itself?

Per CBS Sports, Dak Prescott is the first Cowboys quarterback to throw two first-half interceptions in a playoff game since Troy Aikman in the 1994 NFC Championship Game against… the 49ers.

San Francisco went on to win the game 38-28.

49ers take a 9-6 lead at the half

While the Cowboys deal with the mess that is kicker Brett Maher, the 49ers’ Robbie Gould is 3-for-3 on the day and remains perfect in his NFL postseason career to send the 49ers to halftime with a 9-6 lead.

In the first half of their wild-card wins last weekend, the 49ers and Cowboys combined for 35 points and 495 yards (7.2 yards per play).

In the first half today, the two teams have combined for 15 points and 277 yards (4.5 yards per play).

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott throws his second INT of the half

Late in the half, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is picked off by 49ers linebacker Fred Warner, Prescott’s second interception of the game.

This is Prescott’s sixth multi-INT game of the season, most by a Dallas QB since Drew Bledsoe also had six in 2005.

The Cowboys turnover-prone ways have haunted them all year long, as Dallas is 3-4 in games with 2+ giveaways versus 10-1 when posting one or fewer giveaways.

January 22, 2023 at 7:52 PM EST

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard heads to the sideline

It’s another injury on a bulldog tackle, this time to Tony Pollard. This has been prevalent over the past couple of years and might be something that the league’s competition committee should look at regulating to prevent these injuries.

Trust the numbers

Would the Cowboys have kicked a field goal on that fourth-and-4 if not for Brett Maher’s struggles? In this case, the aggression paid off.

Not the kind of records you want to break

After today’s second-quarter PAT was blocked, Brett Maher has missed more than twice as many extra points in the last six quarters than the Cowboys franchise missed in their first 64 playoff games combined:

Missed PATs in Cowboys postseason history

  • This postseason: 5 (1-for-6)
  • All other games combined: 2 (168-for-170)

Cowboys lead 6-3 after Dalton Schultz TD

Despite the blocked PAT, Cowboys take a 6-3 lead on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to Dalton Schultz.

Last week, Schultz became the first Dallas tight end with multiple TD catches in a game and he has another one today.

Prescott has now thrown a touchdown pass in all 13 games since returning from a thumb injury in Week 7.

Omenihu has a wrap around his lower back. It doesn’t look like he’s going back in the game anytime soon.
