49ers punter Mitch Wishnowsky cleared the concussion protocol Saturday. The team also added CB Darqueze Dennard and LB Mark Nzeocha from the practice squad.

I’d guess that means we don’t see S Talanoa Hufanga or LB Azeez Al-Shaair this afternoon.

You read our predictions. The matchup says the 49ers will win. They can run the ball, and Dallas can’t stop the run. The Niners excel after the catch, while Dallas is second to last in the league at stopping teams in yards after the catch yardage. The familiarity between Kyle Shanahan and Dan Quinn also favors San Francisco.

That doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. The Cowboys are loaded on offense and have the speed to create turnovers on defense. Dallas, not unlike San Francisco, can look like the best and worst team in the league in the same game.

Give me the more physical team that’s built to win in the playoffs. 27-23, 49ers.
