The 49ers host the Cowboys for a high-profile showdown on Sunday Night Football, and we've got everything you need to know.

The Dallas Cowboys should have a bone to pick with the San Francisco 49ers right now. After all, the Niners have eliminated the Cowboys in the playoffs the last two postseasons in heartbreaking (or glorious) fashion, depending on which side of the heated rivalry you're on.

And while a regular-season win won't carry quite as much weight as an elimination game, Dallas has to hope going into Levi's Stadium and pulling off an upset over head coach Kyle Shanahan is in the cards.

San Francisco, meanwhile, has other plans.

As one of only two undefeated teams remaining, the 49ers will want to assert their dominance over the NFC by handling quarterback Dak Prescott and Co., sending them to a 3-2 record by the time Sunday Night Football is through.

With all of the country tuning into this primetime matchup between two teams that have never liked each other, Niner Noise breaks down everything you'll want to know to prepare yourself for kickoff.

49ers injury report vs. Cowboys, Week 5

it's somewhat strange thinking the Niners haven't dealt with a serious number of injuries this deep into the season, but Shanahan's squad has stayed relatively fortunate on the injury front.

In fact, only running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been ruled out.

Offensive lineman Jon Feliciano (concussion) is questionable, while wide receivers Deebo Samuel (ribs, knee) and Jauan Jennings (shin) have both been cleared after being limited in practice for part of the week.
