Wild Card Weekend will see two of the most iconic franchises in the NFL meet, with the Dallas Cowboys hosting the San Francisco 49ers.
During an appearance on KNBR’s “Murph & Mac Show”, former 49ers running back Tom Rathman shared his predictions for the Wild Card matchup.
Rathman does not expect the 49ers defeat Cowboys. He also believes that his former team will prevail over its opponent.
“I think they’re going to kick the s–t out of them,” Rathman said. “I think they can take advantage of their defense. I know Dan Quinn is a really good coach and a great defensive coach and he’s going to have a game plan. I just think with the design of plays, all the different things, all the twists you have to prepare for when you are playing Kyle Shanahan, it can be a burden to you. You don’t know what to work on.”

The Cowboys are blessed with many playmakers, particularly on the defensive line. There are legitimate concerns about their run defense.
The Cowboys won’t be able to stop Kyle Shanahan’s rushing attack Sunday. The 49ers could win time of possession.
Kickoff for Cowboys-49ers is at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
