The San Francisco 49ers won their first preseason game of the year against the Dallas Cowboys. Niner Noise recaps the eventful night.
It’s just preseason, but man does it feel good for the 49ers to get a win — especially against the Dallas Cowboys.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan played it safe tonight, only playing a couple of starters and mostly backups for the entire night. This move is completely understandable as the 49ers have been caught with the injury bug for as long as I can remember, so there isn’t any reason to risk the starters’ precious health in what is ultimately a meaningless game.
And how did the backups do? Pretty good, actually. There were many players who showed a lot of potential and had me clamoring for the 2019 season to begin so I could see them contribute in meaningful games.
Of course, there were also the players who did not play well and have me concerned about their roles once the regular season comes around the corner.
But overall, today’s victory was a great win that should have fans feeling confident about the team this season.
Here are the San Francisco 49ers’ preseason Week 1 grades and analysis from their win against the Dallas Cowboys.
