The intense rivalry between the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys is palpable.
Recently, Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons expressed anticipation for a potential rematch against the 49ers. However, 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has some cautionary words for Parsons.
“I don’t think (the Cowboys) want to see us again,” Samuel said in the latest episode of the “Up & Adams” podcast, according to ESPN. “It might be a little bit worse.”
In a highly anticipated Sunday Night Football showdown, the 49ers convincingly defeated the Cowboys with a score of 42-10. This marked their third consecutive victory over the Cowboys, and in the past two seasons, they had also eliminated Dallas in the playoffs.
During the game, 49ers tight end George Kittle sported a “F–k Dallas” T-shirt beneath his jersey. He revealed the shirt while celebrating in the end zone after scoring one of his three touchdowns. This action did not sit well with Parsons, who suggested that Kittle had unnecessarily made the matchup more personal.
Parsons cautioned, “Kittle’s my buddy, but I’ll say this: Laugh now, cry later.”
Samuel, however, disapproved of Parsons’ remarks.
“It was already personal before the game started, and now, 42-10, I don’t think you want to see us again,” Samuel said. “It might be a little bit worse.”
The star wideout added: “I don’t know what we’re ‘trusting.’ He’s talking about ‘we trust,’ you know, ‘laugh now, cry later.’ I mean, y’all think you wanna see us again?”
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott described the Sunday night loss as “the most humbling game” of his career.
The 5-0 49ers are among the two remaining unbeaten teams in the NFL after five weeks. They will face the Cleveland Browns next and currently rank second in points scored and first in points allowed.
Meanwhile, the 3-2 Cowboys are set to take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 6.
