Postseason offers Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy chance to respond to critics


The playoffs are now here -- and the Cowboys are coming off their worst performance of the season in Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Washington Commanders. The 12-5 record doesn’t seem to matter. It was hardly inspiring and left more questions, with Dak Prescott getting intercepted for the seventh straight game (including his third pick-six in the last four games), several special teams miscues and a defense that could not do enough to affect fifth-round rookie quarterback Sam Howell, who was making his first start. For the next week, they will have to live with that performance before taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the wild-card round of the playoffs next Monday (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN/ABC/ESPN+). McCarthy was hired in part because of his postseason success: a Super Bowl win and four trips to the NFC Championship Game as coach of the Green Bay Packers. His expectations are high, but no coach has won a Super Bowl with two different franchises; only six have taken two different teams to the title game.

Fair or not, Prescott judged by SB-winning standards set by Cowboys legends Staubach, Aikman
Unless Prescott pulls off a playoff run over the next month that ends the Cowboys' 26-year Super Bowl drought, he will have to fight through the unending question of whether he can ever deliver.


******
Fairly or unfairly, Cowboys quarterbacks are judged by what Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman did in the 1970s and 1990s, respectively, when the Hall of Famers combined for five Super Bowl championships.

Parsons, Martin Make First-Team All-Pro


The most prestigious of the All-Pro teams did not leave off the Cowboys' best defensive player. Micah Parsons was one of two Cowboys to make first-team All-Pro. It's the second All-Pro selection for Parsons in just his second season.
Parsons becomes just the second Cowboys player in franchise history, and first since Bob Hayes (1965-66) to make the AP first-team All-Pro team in each of his first two seasons. Joining Parsons is no stranger to the list, Zack Martin, who made All-Pro first-team for the sixth time on the AP team.[size]

The Cowboys conflict: The cost of rooting for America's Team


COWBOYS ARE EVERYWHERE. You can feel them in the country's identity. There, in the myth-making of John Wayne or Clint Eastwood or the Lone Ranger or the other pretend Cowboys who became stand-ins for American masculinity. Symbols for love of freedom and a righteous sense of frontier law. You can see them in the culture. They're in the Western expansion unrestrained by the ocean's border. You can sense them in the void. Their muted presence in the self-appointed exceptionalism that ignores the country's first cowboys were Spanish-speaking vaqueros. In silence, Native American and Black cowboys ride there, too. In space and in spirit, cowboys have made the country what it is. The main actors in the country's folklore.

Dallas (31) @ Tampa Bay (14)

So much for notion that Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys might not be up to the challenge of beating Tom Brady. Prescott played his best game in weeks, throwing for four touchdowns and running for another to answer critics of “America's Team” with a 31-14 rout of Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC wild-card playoff game on Monday night. Prescott completed 25 of 33 passes for 305 yards. The Cowboys had dropped eight straight playoff games away from home since winning the NFC championship game in San Francisco on Jan. 17, 1993.

Brady threw a career-high 66 passes, completing 35 of them for for 351 yards, including second-half touchdowns of 30 yards to Julio Jones and 8 yards to Cameron. He was sacked twice and also threw a costly interception, a second-quarter, end-zone pick from the Dallas 5 that prevented the Bucs from potentially taking the lead when they were only trailing 6-0. Brady, who signed with Tampa Bay in 2020 and led the Bucs to a Super Bowl title two years ago, will be a free agent this winter. He retired briefly last February before changing his mind and returning for a 23rd season at age 45.

Sources: Cowboys sign K Tristan Vizcaino amid Brett Maher's woes


The Dallas Cowboys still plan to have Brett Maher kick in Sunday's divisional round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, but they will sign Tristan Vizcaino to the practice squad as insurance, according to sources. But if Maher struggles when he kicks in practice on Thursday and Friday, the Cowboys will at least have Vizcaino ready. He spent part of the 2020 offseason with the club. In the regular season, Maher made 29 of 32 field goal attempts, missing from 59 yards twice and 46 yards. He made 50 of 53 extra points but missed his final point-after attempt in the regular-season finale loss to the Washington Commanders, then four straight against the Buccaneers. Vizcaino played in three games this season with the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots. He made two field goal attempts and three extra points in the Cardinals' win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Key moments from the Dallas Cowboys-San Francisco 49ers rivalry


On Sunday at Levi's Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers will meet again, marking the first time they've faced each other in consecutive postseasons since a three-year stretch from 1992-1994. After going dormant for 27 years, the Cowboys-Niners playoff rivalry roared back to life in the 2021 NFC wild-card round. It's the ninth playoff game between the historic rivals, tying them with Packers-49ers and Cowboys-Rams for the most common playoff matchups in NFL history. Although Dallas holds a 5-3 postseason edge in those meetings, both coaches know the stakes that come with this specific matchup go beyond the win-or-go-home playoff mandate.

'How 'bout them Cowboys?' The inside story of Jimmy Johnson's legendary line


They sat undisturbed at a picnic table at Jimmy Johnson's favorite Italian restaurant along Highway A1A in the Florida Keys one Saturday night in early April. The Pro Football Hall of Fame coach was with his Hall of Fame quarterback, Troy Aikman, three of his former assistant coaches -- defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt, offensive coordinator Norv Turner and offensive line coach Tony Wise -- his agent, Nick Christin, and the public relations chief at the University of Miami and Dallas Cowboys , Rich Dalrymple. Some of their wives were on hand, too.
After a day spent on Johnson's boat, fishing and telling stories, there was one more story to tell. It was about the 1992 NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers -- and what Dalrymple called the Cowboys' finest hour, borrowing the term from former English Prime Minister Winston Churchill. As Johnson readies for his induction into the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday, many will recall how he led the rebuild of America's Team with the help of the Herschel Walker trade -- drafting Aikman and running back Emmitt Smith and inheriting Michael Irvin as they formed the famed "Triplets" -- and led the Cowboys to back-to-back Super Bowls. Others will point to his calculating methods and bravado. But more than beating the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII, Johnson's career is mostly defined by what happened inside Candlestick Park on Jan. 17, 1993, when the Cowboys beat San Francisco 30-20.

Dallas (12) @ San Francisco (19)

Christian McCaffrey scored on a go-ahead 2-yard run in the fourth quarter and San Francisco's defense did the rest, sending the 49ers to their second straight NFC title game. Purdy, the last pick in the draft last April, improved to 7-0 as a starter since replacing an injured Jimmy Garoppolo early in Week 13. He went 18 for 28 for 215 yards with no turnovers, joining Joe Flacco (2008) and Mark Sanchez (2009) as the only rookie QBs to win two playoff starts. The 49ers (15-4) used back-to-back long scoring drives in the second half to wear down the Cowboys (13-6).

The Cowboys lost for the record seventh straight time in the divisional round and have failed to make it to the NFC title game since winning their fifth Super Bowl title following the 1995 season. Dak Prescott threw two interceptions and Brett Maher missed his fifth extra point of the postseason when his attempt was blocked. He later made two field goals. Maher made his second field goal of the game when he converted from 43 yards out to cut San Francisco's lead to 16-12. RB Tony Pollard left late in the first half after injuring his left ankle while getting tackled following a reception
