Nick Bosa is giving the Cowboys a lot of extra motivation ahead of their Wild Card matchup in Dallas. The 49ers' stud defensive end thinks the Cowboys offensive line is talented, but "definitely beatable."
On Thursday, Bosa shared his thoughts about the Cowboys offensive line, specifically the two tackles, Tyron Smith and La'el Collins. Bosa began his answer by complimenting both players before making a comment that will likely make him a target on Sunday.
"I think they're both very solid players," Bosa said, via NFL.com's Kevin Patra. "Obviously, Tyron's had a Hall of Fame career, I think. And him and Trent have been the best tackles in the league for a long time. But they're definitely beatable. There's tape on them getting beat, and we're trying to do the same. They've definitely been in and out of the lineup a lot this year and the past years, so, the game plan is to make them work."
Whether this will be used as bulletin board material or not, Bosa will surely be the main focus for the Dallas offense. The third-year d-end recorded 52 total tackles this year, with four forced fumbles and 15.5 sacks for the 10-7 Niners.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy praised Bosa during his press conference on Wednesday.
“Nick is a force,” McCarthy said. “There’s only one number you need to look at and that’s his quarterback hits. He is definitely a pressure player and it all starts up front defensively for those guys.”
Despite Bosa having a monster year this season, the Niners will have their hands full with a Dallas offense that ranked ninth in rushing and first in scoring during the regular season.
