Many fans fell in love with the thanks to these two teams. Protagonists in the eighties and nineties, the and the Dallas face each other again in the , a situation that has not occurred since 1995.

That’s how it is, 27 years have passed since the last time the Gambusinos and the Lone Star met in a postseason game, in times when Steve Young and Troy Aikman commanded the offenses of their respective franchises.

Of course, we’ve all heard about those teams that, in the 1980s and 1990s, were the kingpins of the NFC; institutions with legends on and off the grid, such as trainers Bill Walsh and Tom Landry, who delivered the first rings to their institutions.

It will be an interesting duel, to the point that, of all those we will have in this wild card round, this will be the closest, with only four points left in the spreads, according to the forecasts of the sportsbooks in Las Vegas.

As far as the playoffs are concerned, the Cowboys have a historic 5-2 advantage, with wins in the NFC Championship Games in 1971, 1972, 1993 and 1994, as well as a divisional round win in December 1972; the won the 1982 and 1995 conference finals.

Dallas’ last two NFC Championship wins led to subsequent Super Bowl wins, while San Francisco got their revenge in the last game and won their last NFL title.

This will be the first time we’ve seen both teams meet in the Wild Card round, so the thrills seem guaranteed.
