But the 49ers took the early lead after Elijah Mitchell ran in a touchdown for San Francisco in the first quarter. The Cowboys offense struggled to get started, with Dak going four-and-out on their first drive.

Linebacker Micah Parsons was injured in the first half. He was slow to get up and taken to the tent for evaluation, but returned to the field afterwards.

The Cowboys managed to stop the 49ers advance, holding them to just a field goal.

The Cowboys offense tried to pull off a trick play, but Cedric Wilson’s pass to Tony Pollard went incomplete, resulting in a punt that turned the ball back over to San Francisco.

The first quarter wrapped up with San Francisco leading 10-0.

The 49ers scored another field goal to kick of the second quarter after the Cowboys defense was able to hold them off a first down.

Small victory to hold @49ers to 3 points on that drive #DallasCowboys @CBSDFW @CBS11Sports
