Dallas is now in the playoffs for the first time since 2018-19. Cowboy fans rejoice! Their star wide receiver, Amari cooper is fully committed to their quest for a Super Bowl victory.
The Cowboys will be facing the San Francisco 49ers in a Wild Card matchup Sunday at 4:30 pm. ET. ET.
“It don’t really matter what outsiders say,” Cooper said about their Wild Card game against the 49ers being a bad matchup. “At the end of the day, that’s why the game is played. If the game was won by what people believed would happen, then why even play the game?”
The 49ers are heading into postseason play having won four of their five previous games. Their only loss was against the Titans in week 16. The Cowboys can also say that, with their only loss coming against the Cardinals three weeks ago.
After a disappointing 2020-21 season, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy transformed a 6–10 team with injuries into a legitimate contender 12-5 thanks to his explosive offense, led by quarterback Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliot and CeeDee lamb.
Cooper was not targeted in the Cardinals loss. He missed two games due to a cracked right rib.
The Cowboys’ regular season saw 68 receptions by the Alabama native for 865 yards and eight touchdowns. This is only the second time in his professional career that he has been held to less than 1,000 yards receiving since joining in 2015.
The Cowboys are dependent on CeeDee Lamb as their second-year receiver. He just finished his 1,000-yard receiving season and led Dallas with 79 snags, 1,102 yards, and six scores.
According to ESPN, the Cowboys are a three point favorite for their Wild Card match against the 49ers. After the FOX broadcast of Eagles vs.., the game will air on CBS live. Buccaneers wild-card game.
