At the 2-minute warning, Dallas has possession of the ball on 3rd & 11, trailing 23-17, with all three of their timeouts.

SCORE ALERT: Dak Prescott runs it in on 3rd & Goal for a Dallas touchdown, cutting San Francisco's lead to 23-17.

TURNOVER ALERT: Jimmy Garoppolo overthrows Brandon Aiyuk and Anthony Brown intercepts the pass, putting Dallas within striking position down two scores.

SCORE ALERT: Dallas puts points on the board, keeping it a two-score game with a Greg Zurlein field goal, making it 23-10 49ers.

3rd Quarter

SCORE ALERT: Tyshun Raquan "Deebo" Samuel Sr. The 49ers star rushes from 26 yards out, breaking ankles, en route to another San Francisco touchdown, who now lead 23-7.

TURNOVER ALERT: CB K'Waun Williams picks off Dak Prescott, setting up San Francisco with good field position.

INJURY UPDATE: DE Nick Bosa has been ruled OUT(concussion) for the remainder of the game.

The Dallas Cowboys will start the half with the ball.

2nd Quarter

SCORE ALERT: The 49ers follow up the Dallas touchdown with another scoring drive of their own, as Robbie Gould drills his third field goal of the day and his second of 50+ yards to give the 49ers a 16-7 lead.

SCORE ALERT: The Cowboys finally get on the board with a Dak Prescott strike to Amari Cooper in the endzone, making it 13-7 49ers.

SCORE ALERT: After the Dallas punt, San Francisco drives down the field once again, electing to kick a 40-yard field goal on 4th & 1, which Robbie Gould drills to make it 13-0 49ers.

1st Quarter

The 49ers force another punt after allowing one first down and will retain possession of the ball up 10-0.

SCORE ALERT: The 49ers' promising drive is killed by a 11-yard loss play, forcing the 49ers to settle for a 53-yard field goal, which Robbie Gould drills.

SACK ALERT: After the impressive TD drive, the 49ers force a 3-and-out, with Not-All-Pro Nick Bosa delivering the final blow, sacking Dak Prescott on third down.

SCORE ALERT: The 49ers dial up a number of passes and runs to drive into Dallas territory, and finishes the drive with an Elijah Mitchell touchdown run to lead 7-0.


One notable name not on the list: LB Azeez Al-Shaair, who is ACTIVE after being listed as a DNP for Friday's practice. He'll join fellow LBs Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw, which marks just the third time this season that the trio has played together.

Kyle Shanahan praises his quarterback room every year. Last season, the San Francisco 49ers went through three starting quarterbacks and still made it to the NFC Championship Game. Trey Lance was the Week 1 starter but suffered a season-ending ankle injury during his second game. Eleven weeks later, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a broken foot. That opened the door for rookie Brock Purdy to show his coaches and the NFL world that he belonged, despite being the last overall pick in the draft. Purdy guided the 49ers to eight consecutive wins before suffering a severe injury in that NFC title game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.
