The San Francisco 49ers haven't lost a game since October and after a slow first half, they ran away with Saturday's playoff opener against their NFC West rivals the Seattle Seahawks. The Dallas Cowboys, meanwhile, dominated Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night (despite some poor kicking) to continue their impressive season. 

The two teams will meet at the 49ers' home in Santa Clara on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. PT (4:30 p.m. ET) on Fox.
