One of the NFL’s most storied rivalries will renew in the 2022 NFL playoffs on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the Dallas Cowboys during 2022 NFL Wild Card Weekend. Dallas rolled to a 12-5 record and an NFC East title to earn the No. 3 seed in the NFL playoff bracket. Kyle Shanahan’s squad, meanwhile, had an up-and-down 10-7 campaign, but ultimately surged late to grab the No. 6 seed. You can stream the game on Paramount+.
Kickoff from AT&T Stadium is set for at 4:30 p.m. ET, where the Cowboys are 5-3 against the spread this season.

Wild Card NFL picks for 49ers vs. Cowboys
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Cowboys vs. 49ers game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,400 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 136-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For 49ers vs. Cowboys, the model is backing San Francisco to cover the spread on the road. The Niners finished the regular season hot, winning four of their last five. They picked up four covers in that five-game span as well. That stretch saw them win and cover against a pair of playoff teams, the Bengals and Rams. Their only loss during that run came against the Tennessee Titans, who went on to claim the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff bracket.
The Niners ranked third in the NFL in total defense this season, and SportsLine’s model projects they’ll be able to hold the Cowboys to 27 points, four below their season-long average. On the other side of the ball, receiver Deebo Samuel is one of the league’s most versatile players, and the model is projecting almost 100 scrimmage yards for the wideout. The simulations show this game coming down to a two-point margin, and in such a tight matchup, the value is on the underdog.
