“Lenoir and many of his other teammates were especially fired up after head coach Kyle Shanahan’s weekly “highlights” presentation, which took place during Saturday night’s team meeting at a hotel near the stadium. Included was a clip of Dallas defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, interviewed at his locker following the team’s 30-10 victory over the Jets last month, proclaiming, “You just witnessed the best defense in the world. We don’t care about (anybody) else. They’ve gotta come match our energy, and nobody can do it.”

Fred Warner pinpoints exact moment he knew 49ers would beat Cowboys

“As soon as the offense went down on that first drive and scored, I was like, ‘We got ‘em,’ “ Warner said. “The way that they are operating right now is unbelievable. I’ve been a part of a lot of good teams since I’ve been here, but the way the offense is playing is unlike anything I’ve seen. That right there just lets me know that as long as the defense is doing our job, we’re always going to have a chance.”
