The 49ers host the Cowboys for Sunday Night Football this week, and fans who want to tune into the radio broadcast can find out what they need to know right here.

Some may argue the San Francisco 49ers' four games played this season were relatively easy.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have an atrocious offense, while the Los Angeles Rams are in an awkward retooling phase. The New York Giants seemingly can't get out of their own way, especially with Daniel Jones at quarterback, while the Arizona Cardinals are vying for the top pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Perhaps. Perhaps not.

Either way, the Niners' Week 5 opponent is one that'll certainly gain some attention.

San Francisco welcomes the 3-1 Dallas Cowboys to town on Sunday Night Football in a primetime showdown between two historic rivals with a deep and hated history against each other.

And while Sunday night's setting won't involve playoff ramifications just yet, it'll be an important next step in helping determine which of the two is the better contender for the NFC crown.

NBC will carry the nationally televised broadcast, which kicks off on Sunday night at 8:20 p.m. ET from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

But for those who can't watch on TV or stream the game, the old radio set can still work.
