Cowboys. 49ers. Who can forget their historic NFC Championship Game matchups in the early 1990s? Troy Aikman vs. Steve Young, two Hall of Fame quarterbacks duelling in consecutive years. Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith on one side, G.O.A.T. Jerry Rice on the other. The Cowboys bested the 49ers in both matchups, the penultimate step in their journey to back-to-back Super Bowl victories.
