As if the San Francisco 49ers’ win over the Dallas Cowboys was not bad enough, Arik Armstead and the Niners continue to add salt to the wound.
The Niners-on Cowboys latest rivalry saw the 49ers’ defensive line trolling the ‘Boys on TikTok, with a video showing Dak Prescott and his offensive line. An unimpressed Armstead captioned it, “Oh, that’s 20sacks for certain.”
While we’re sure Armstead, who has 28.5 career sacks since joining the NFL in 2015, would rack up 20-plus sacks against the players in the viral TikTok video, they aren’t the real Cowboys offensive line. However, these are not the Cowboys’ offensive line. This video is from an offseason commercial by Prescott.

However, the Cowboys’ offensive team could be in serious trouble. Dallas lost Tyron Smith, but they brought in Jason Peters, a future Hall of Famer, for a physical that could lead to a signing.
Armstead, on the other hand, is still recovering from a sprained left MCL. He should be ready to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 1. Armstead is looking to build on an impressive season that saw him record six sacks, 63 tackles, and move from defensive to defensive tackle.
As the 2022 NFL regular season begins, it’s still great preseason fodder. We won’t see a rematch between Armstead, the 49ers, and Prescott and Cowboys this year unless they meet again in the playoffs where Dallas can exact its revenge for the heartbreaking loss last season.
