49ers' Deebo Samuel Makes NFL History With Backfield Usage vs. Cowboys

Deebo makes NFL history with backfield usage vs. Cowboys originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

In case you haven't noticed yet, Deebo Samuel is one of a kind. 

The 49ers wide receiver/running back/quarterback has established himself as one of the NFL's most unique weapons throughout the second half of the season. 

In Sunday's 23-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card Game at AT&T Stadium, Samuel made history on the ground. 

Against the Cowboys on Sunday, Samuel accumulated 110 total yards from scrimmage (72 rushing, 38 receiving) with a touchdown on the ground in the the third quarter. 

Samuel has been so dominant on the ground, in fact, that he had out-paced Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott throughout the second half of the season.
