2021 NFL playoffs: What we learned from 49ers' win over Cowboys on Super Wild Card Weekend

1. The better-coached team triumphed. Kyle Shanahan and Co. cooked up a tremendous opening offensive script, covering 75 yards in seven plays for the game's first score, and a resounding punch in the Cowboys' mouth. San Francisco pushed its lead to 13-0 before Dallas woke up, and followed a key takeaway in the third quarter with a well-timed run to Deebo Samuel, whose cut upfield made the difference and led him to a runaway score. Niners defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans called an excellent game, confusing Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense throughout the game, so much that he finished with just 23 completions on 43 attempts and posted a passer rating of 69.3. There were some questionable decisions late in the game (more on that later), but with the bar set rather low by Mike McCarthy's staff, Shanahan outperformed him significantly, even after nine accepted penalties against his team. The 49ers at least looked prepared, and played slightly cleaner football. That was the difference.

Cowboys fall behind 49ers early, lose Wild Card game 23-17 in wild finish

High hopes were dashed as the Dallas Cowboys lost their Wild Card matchup with the San Francisco 49ers by a 23-17 score. The Cowboys were playing for the right to go play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the Bucs dominated the Philadelphia Eagles in the early game today. But they were not able to overcome a relentless pass rush and their own mistakes, and now have to face a long offseason wondering what could have been.

The San Francisco 49ers pass rush has been anchored by Nick Bosa, but they will have to manage the rest of their playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys without their star edge rusher. Bosa was ruled out by the 49ers with a concussion, which Bosa suffered in the first half after he ran into teammate D.J. Jones as he was falling to the ground when La'el Collins was blocking him.
