Micah Parsons makes bold promise ahead of 49ers showdown

Cowboys superstar Micah Parsons promises 49ers star offensive tackle Trent Williams will have a front-row seat to a phenomenal performance in Sunday's divisional-round playoff game. 

"I want Trent's best game ever, and he's going to get my best game ever," the outside linebacker said Thursday, per ESPN's Ed Werder. 

Lining up across from Williams, a 10-time Pro Bowler, and the rest of San Francisco's offense will be a test. Pro Football Focus graded Williams as its top offensive tackle (92.5). His blocking helped propel the 49ers, who have the league's sixth-best offense.

Per Oddschecker, the 49ers have the third-best odds to make the Super Bowl.

In Monday's 31-14 win over Tampa Bay, Parsons had two pass deflections, a sack and three tackles. Against the Niners, he relishes being the underdog. 

"Honestly, I think you should feed into it. You should love that stuff," Parsons said. "When no one believes in you, that's the best feeling." 

Parsons' confidence bodes well for Dallas, which wants to avenge last year's first-round playoff exit against San Francisco. The 49ers have won 11 consecutive games, including a 41-23 win over Seattle in the wild-card round. 

Parsons recently said the playoffs "are where legends are made." Now is his time to prove it.
