In their Wild Card matchup, the Dallas Cowboys will host the San Francisco 49ers. It is anticipated that Sunday’s game will be the closest and most exciting game of the week. This makes it an important game to watch.
The Cowboys are under more pressure than any other playoff team (except perhaps the Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), according to Dak Prescott. According to this article by The Athletic, Prescott knows what people expect of him and thrives under pressure.
Prescott regards pressure as a privilege and stated this before their first playoff game.
“I don’t necessarily know why people have labeled the word pressure as such a bad thing, honestly…I think it creates high expectations and high standards, and they usually create high results.”
The Cowboys’ quarterback spoke out to the media on Thursday about the legitimacy and fairness of the Wild Card matchup. He stated that it would be a “dog fight”, and a war, and that his team is up for the challenge.
If the Cowboys defeat the 49ers at their home on Sunday, they can advance to the playoff competition and face the winner of the Arizona Cardinals Vs Los Angeles Rams.
