San Francisco and Dallas have both won five Super Bowls, one behind the all-time record shared by the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots, who will both also play on Wildcard Weekend.
The Dallas dynasty won three Super Bowls in four years but was denied by San Francisco, which captured Super Bowl XXIX.
Dallas won Super Bowl XXX a year later and neither franchise has won one since.
San Francisco 49ers
The Niners returned to Super Bowl XLVII with Collin Kaepernick and lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
Just two years ago, they went back and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.
That was under current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, now in his fifth season with the 49ers.
He played well in his first but didn’t get to the playoffs because his team was 1–10 when he became the starter.
He got hurt the next year but made the Super Bowl run the year after that.
Last year, he got hurt again and San Francisco finished last in the NFC West.
He made 15 starts this season and won nine of them, including San Francisco’s tenth and playoff-clinching victory in Week 18 against the Rams.
Garoppolo was questionable to start after missing the previous game with a torn ligament on his throwing hand.
He completed over 71 percent of his passes for 316 yards but threw two interceptions.
San Francisco’s superb skill player Deebo Samuel not only ran for another score, his seventh in the last eight weeks, but threw one too.
Elijah Mitchell carried twenty-something times for a second straight week after returning from injury.
Dallas hasn’t been back to even the National Football Conference Championship Game since it won its last Super Bowl nearly 26 years ago.
Dak Prescott lost in the Divisional Round after a 13–3 rookie regular season.
He advanced in the Wildcard Round two years later before losing again in the next round of four.
That was three years ago now. This season, he won his third NFC East crown and his first under Head Coach Mike McCarthy.
Prescott has a 104.2 Quarterback Rating (compared to Garoppolo’s 98.7) this season.
His 10.9 yards per completion is greater than two yards less than Garoppolo’s, however.

4* Free Wildcard Weekend NFL Betting Prediction:
The game will be tight.
The team that gets a big bounce, or a break, or a whistle will win. That could be Dallas.
San Francisco will run the ball better, though, and give it a slightly better chance of making a big play in the passing game.
The only way to bet a game like this one is to take the points.
