is healthy and who is hot. when you see the logos side by side, it makes you think about the old times. it makes your mind wander to the historic games, legendary players who have battled in the postseason for these two franchises. it is crazy to think that they have not met since the 1994 playoffs. that will change on sunday. the 49ers are hot right now. they have won seven of the final nine to sneak into the postseason. they snuck in last second. the first postseason game since the 2020 super bowl loss against kansas city. the window looks like it may have shut halfway through the year but the core from that team, they figured it out. this time, they had the highest of aspirations for their postseason run. >> when i am just speaking in context to somebody, i say back in 2019 when we went to the
super bowl. i cannot wait to say and 22 or whatever when we won the super bowl. it has a lot better ring to it than when we went to the super bowl. so, trying to change up that w word from went to win. it definitely is a driver, a motivator. we do feel like we have some unfinished business. >> reporter: dallas opened as field-goal favorites, take the points through the nfc east. outside of those teams, they were just above average. only 1 and 4 against playoff teams not named the eagles. some good news. not a lot of mutual opponents. we will see you on the football field sunday, but i like their shot. we are counting to kick off at 1:30 on sunday right here on kpix 5 . then stay tuned for the fifth quarter, and a special edition of the kpix 5 news. is for the possibility of dell is hosting the super bowl next month, the plan to use at&t stadium as a backup venue , that is officially off of the table tonight. the nfl confirmed today the big

, and daily lines wrapping around the block, the county is addressing some of the confusion. >> when should you get tested, and when should you use which kind of test? >> reporter: if you have covid, and you want to end your quarantine, an antigen or at- home test is okay. in this instance, a easier test is actually too sensitive, and will detect trace amounts of virus in your body, and could give you a false positive. if you have been exposed, the best test is a pcr test. if you are symptomatic, you can use either an at-home or pcr test. >> we would like kaiser and others to step up and do their part as well. >> reporter: county counsel james williams also present to find two of the largest healthcare providers in the region, kaiser and palo alto medical foundation, for not testing enough. williams says the report violations online, and they will investigate. >> if you have symptoms, or close contact, and you have tried to get access to testing from your healthcare provider,
