Jerry Jones stated earlier in the week that Sunday's contest would demonstrate to him how the Cowboys compare to the NFL's top teams.
In a game that proved a 49ers team that terminated the Cowboys' season in each of the last two years remains a level above its NFC counterpart,
On the first drive, the 49ers shredded Dallas' defense, setting the tone for the rest of the game.
In the 42-10 drubbing, Brock Purdy threw four touchdown passes, three of which went to George Kittle.
For the 14th game in a row, Christian McCaffrey scored a touchdown while San Francisco's whole offensive arsenal participated.
The 49ers were unrelenting on defense. Fred Warner made the biggest effect,
finishing the game with an interception, sack, and forced fumble in a swarming performance.
The Cowboys' offense appeared uneasy and disorganized, much like it did in the playoff exit from the previous season.
