SOURCE SPORTS: Cowboys ‘Punched in the Mouth’ in 42-10 Loss to 49ers

The Sunday Night Football matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys had all the hype you could ask for in a matchup. As for the result, the Cowboys claim they were “punched in the mouth.”

The Niners won 42-10, with Niners quarterback Brock Purdy once again proving himself behind a four-touchdown effort. Three of Purdy’s passes went to tight end George Kittle.

For the Cowboys, Dak Prescott wasn’t as fortunate. After tossing a beautiful touchdown bomb on the team’s third drive, he would throw interceptions on three consecutive drives. Prescott called the game “humbling.”


“Put everything into it and got punched in the mouth,” Prescott said. “Called it a couple weeks ago humbling against Arizona, but this may be the most humbling I’ve ever been a part of. Felt good about the preparation and felt good about everything, honestly, coming into this game, matchups, and they beat us in every aspect.”

“I don’t foresee a whole lot of winning grades coming out of this performance,” Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said. “I think the most important thing for all of us, and I expressed it, just be accountable for what you did tonight, how you played. We’ve got to clean our own house up.”
