Deebo Samuel donned the Tiger Woods jersey in the 49ers jersey in the Wildcard win over the Cowboys

Deebo Samuel was nothing short of a tiger in his Wild Card game against the Dallas Cowboys. He made a few important plays throughout the game and won the San Francisco 49ers a 17-23 ticket to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. It was surely a remarkable day for the wide receiver and, in the end, certainly a lucky day as well. But did this chance come from Tiger Woods?

According to a recent photo shared on Twitter, the 26-year-old was seen wearing Tiger Woods’ signature red Sunday t-shirt as his underwear during the game. Obviously, Deebo wanted a little luck from the GOAT of Golf, especially on a day when the Niners were meeting the deadly Cowboys.

Apparently this T-shirt might have mystical powers that the receiver was looking for. Tiger Woods has won all his 82 PGA Tours by donning this red T-shirt. And clearly, Deebo has achieved those powers as well. As much of an incredible athlete as Deebo is, he left no stone unturned while delivering a victory for his team.

Deebo had a special role to play in the offense on Sunday. The wide receiver finished tallying more rushed numbers than receiving. It certainly surprised the Cowboys. He checked in 72 rushing yards on 10 carries for a touchdown while running the ball. He had 32 yards for three receptions and no touchdowns on the reception.

However, in the end, it was luck that came in handy. The game ended controversially in favor of the Niners. When the referee stopped play to score the ball in the correct position before the snap, it cost the Cowboys precious seconds. The officiating team was then questioned by many people. However, they worked well in the books.

Surely it was a close escape for the Niners, or should we say it was the effect of the Tiger red? No one really knows for sure. But one thing is certain, and that is that San Francisco will make it to the divisional round of the playoffs. They will meet the mighty Green Bay Packers next week.
