daily infections and no asymptomatic testing but vaccination and treatment would continue already we don't tell people to mask and distance anymore because that really had to do with trying to keep it at bay. when you go into endemic phase you treat it like influenza. >> reporter: indoor masking will likely continue especially in the winter months even without mandates. to the storm watch. a brutal winter storm hitting much of the southeast and moving up the east coast. check out this stunning video of a tractor trailer that fell from an icy over pass in durham north carolina. it was stuck like this for hours until a crane was used to lower it down to the highway. the driver was taken to the hospital. check this out in georgia, a man woke to the sound of his

good good morning everybody. how is that 49er hangover? your team is playing on. think of the top seed at green bay at the end of the week. let's savor what happened on a sunday afternoon in arlington, texas. remember the boom box craze? came out of the huddle, a little bit red in the crowd there. samuel, 15 yards, screen pass, inside the five. mitchell capped off seven play drive on a four yard run to the corner, 7-0, 49ers. prescott went to work. dallas offense pulling on their
first drive. brought him down. one first down in the opening quarter for the cowboys. oh just a little outside. second quarter, niners up 13-0. cowboys got on the board. cooper caught a dime. lead cut to six. garoppolo, how about one here, letting loose on the open field. niners led 16-7 at the break. before that, hit in the head, friendly fire. d.j. jones got him. he would not return. meantime, pass rush without him, relentless d.j. jones fell on prescott for a loss of 13. williams, almost a one handed grab. i can't get over it.
every time i see it, i want to see it again. niner offense was just clicking on the short field. samuel, 26-yard touchdown run and niners led 23-7. it's a fake! former cal bear picks up 16. mosely, third down stop, two possession game, garoppolo rolled out, and prescott could not make a play. garoppolo rolling, makes something out of nothing. he was picked off by anthony brown inside the 25. things continue to unravel when warner went out with ankle
injury. couple plays later dak open on the left side, why not try? five yard touchdown run and cuts liners lead to six. warner is not happy. 49er offense try to chew up some plots. big third down but samuel stopped by the yardage marker. shanahan elected to punt. okay coach. 4th and 11 for cowboys. wilson open behind in the secondary. warner celebrated turn over on down, less than a minute shanahan tried to run out the clock and samuel running to the far side, looked like he got to the yardage marker. it was ruled a first down but they reviewed it and said it was inches short. williams wasn't set, that's a
penalty. ball back to dallas. 14 seconds left. prescott tried the draw and he is running 30, 25, inside the 25 but they had no time outs. gotta spike it. what? the time ran out. the 49ers held on on to the divisional round. they won in big d, final of 23- 17. if you are scoring at home write this, 49ers at packers 5:15 kick on another network. but you will figure that out. that's enough. we'll see you later on victory monday. >> and it feels good. 4:57. still ahead on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area. >> a day to recognize and celebrate the life of dr. martin luther king jr, the events today in the bay area
