Week 5’s matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys was supposed to be a battle of the best. But only one team looked like they were ready for the spotlight.
San Francisco dominated Dallas with a 42-10 primetime win Sunday night to remain undefeated. With roughly 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, both teams decided to pull their important starters. There was no reason to risk injury for the 49ers and the game was too out of reach for the Cowboys.
Dak Prescott, who threw three interceptions and was sacked three times, said after the game he didn’t see that coming and “got punched in the mouth.”
“Called it a couple weeks ago humbling against Arizona, but this may be the most humbling game I’ve ever been a part of,” Prescott said after Sunday’s loss. “Felt good about the preparation, felt good about everything, honestly, coming into this game, matchups, and they beat us in every aspect.”
With Sunday’s win, the 49ers now lead the all-time series 18-17-1. Sunday’s 32-point blowout was also the largest win by the 49ers in the series.
Brock Purdy closed out his day with 252 yards and four touchdowns as the 49ers offense totaled 421 offensive yards to the Cowboys’ 197. Prescott went on to say the 49ers are “further ahead of us right now.”
“We’ve got to close that gap and be ready to where we want to get. We know we’re going to have to go through this team and most likely come back to this place,” Prescott said.
