The San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys go at it today on wild card weekend for a spot in the divisional round. The Cowboys are looking to find their way back to the 2nd round of the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2018 and they’ll need big-time plays from star receiver Amari Cooper to do it.

It was a pretty slow start to the game for the Cowboys going down 13-0 early on. The way the Cowboys have generated offense all season long is through Cooper. He’s 3rd on the team in receptions, 2nd in yards and tied for 1st in touchdowns. All of that has been done while only starting 14 games this season. It didn’t take too long after going down for Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to find his playmaker and get Dallas back in the game.

Down 13-0, the Cowboys absolutely needed a score to keep the game from getting out of hand. So Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott delivered. A 9 play, 67-yard drive was capped off perfectly as Prescott placed the ball flawlessly into Cooper’s arms in the back corner of the endzone.

Cooper was matched up 1 on 1 which makes always makes him a threat and it did here too. Using his speed, he got by his defender and all that was left was for Prescott to drop in the bucket. A much-needed touchdown that closed the gap to 13-7 and they’ll need more of it.

The Cowboys simply have to get the ball into Cooper’s hands if they’re going to have a shot at winning this game. This is the chance for both Cooper and Prescott to have trademark moments in Dallas history if they can wake the offense up and get going and win this game.

It’ll take a lot of work but they’ve proven before that they can be the ones to produce when needed.
