Once again, quarterback Nick Mullens was one of Pro Football Focus' lowest-graded players emerging from a San Francisco 49ers game. His three-turnover performance against the Dallas Cowboys earned a 51.4 overall grade, his fifth grade of 62.7-or-lower in his last six outings.

Left tackle Mike McGlinchey earned the highest grade on offense (83.0). While he allowed a sack and three pressures through 48 pass-blocking snaps, it was his run-blocking grade of 92.6 that earned him high marks. McGlinchey was the second-highest graded tackle so far from Week 15. His run-blocking grade was the highest among tackles.

The 49ers' highest-graded player was cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon, who made his first start since Week 2. He was credited with a tackle and two passes defended. According to Pro Football Focus, Witherspoon was targeted six times and allowed just two receptions and a passer rating of 42.4. The cornerback's overall grade was his highest since Week 8 during his rookie 2017 season.

The game's highest overall grade went to Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (91.1). He finished the game with five tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble.
