Yes, we’re still playing football. And the @49ers just took a LATE lead! #DALvsSF https://t.co/q4HXKl5gUW
As is generally the case, starters weren’t afforded a big stage to shine as the Dallas and San Francisco coaching staffs looked to insulate their most dependable contributors from injuries.
Understandably, those decisions opened the door for youngsters on both sides to make good first impressions with the start of the regular season one month away.
Both the 49ers and Cowboys will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 18. Dallas will host the Cincinnati Bengals at AT&T Stadium, while San Francisco will head to NRG Stadium for a meeting with the Houston Texans.
