49ers fool everybody with this nifty, shifty TD from Brock Purdy to George Kittle

There are can't miss plays, and then there's this one the 49ers had for a touchdown on Sunday night against the Cowboys.

You've got to watch the trickery the 49ers executed against the Cowboys when Brock Purdy and the offense fooled everyone to get a touchdown to George Kittle.

For anyone who thought the Dallas Cowboys would put up a serious fight against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football, the first quarter-plus is suggesting otherwise.

The Niners already got off to a solid start by scoring a touchdown on their opening drive, as quarterback Brock Purdy found tight end George Kittle to make it 7-0 in San Francisco's favor.

Making things even more favorable to the home crowd at Levi's Stadium, the 49ers defense was absolutely dominant against Dallas, too, as linebacker Fred Warner not only picked up a key third-down sack of quarterback Dak Prescott but also forced a fumble on the Cowboys' third drive.

But those weren't necessarily the "plays of the game," however.

49ers make plenty of Cowboys miss on this can't-miss touchdown trickery

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has plenty of unique elements to his intricate offense, but there usually isn't a lot of trickery.

Save for a nifty run fake that turned into the Niners' second touchdown of the night:

Did you see all that?

Purdy handed the ball off to running back Christian McCaffrey, which played right into the Cowboys' strategy of smothering the All-Pro on Sunday night. Except McCaffrey handed the ball off to wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who subsequently gave it back to Purdy.

Then, Purdy to Kittle for another six. A 38-yard score that put San Francisco up 14-0 over a scuffling Dallas team that hasn't got much going for it thus far.

Precisely no one on the 49ers' sideline is complaining about that, though.
