49ERS VS. COWBOYS ON SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
Bitter rivals meet again. The San Francisco 49ers (4-0) and the Dallas Cowboys (3-1) will renew their historic rivalry on Sunday Night Football in Week 5 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Niners quarterback Brock Purdy and the team's deep arsenal of offensive weapons, including running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, have scored no less than 30 points in each of San Francisco's first four games this season. On the other side of the ball, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner and Talanoa Hufanga headline a defensive unit that comes into Week 5 holding the opposition to 284.3 yards per game, fifth best in the NFL.
The Cowboys come to the Bay Area with three blowout victories under their belts – 40-0 over the New York Giants, 30-10 over the New York Jets and 38-3 over the New England Patriots. But the Arizona Cardinals (1-3) stunned Dallas in Week 3, winning 28-16. Dallas' dominant defense is tied for second in takeaways (10), fifth in sacks (14) and only gives up 259.8 yards per game, the second best mark in the league.
