The Bay Area witnessed an early spark with the Iowa connection. Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers surged to a commanding 21-7 lead over the Dallas Cowboys during their “Sunday Night Football” clash. Notably, the 49ers stifled the Cowboys’ offense, with a single exception—a perfect drive culminating in a 26-yard touchdown pass to KaVontae Turpin.

Purdy showcased his prowess by connecting with George Kittle for his first two touchdowns of the season. The former Iowa State quarterback initially found the ex-Iowa tight end for a 19-yard touchdown, propelling them to a 7-0 lead. In the second quarter, Purdy executed a brilliant lateral play, resulting in a 38-yard touchdown pass to Kittle.

Coincidentally, the same trick play had been used by the Detroit Lions earlier in the day, leading to another former Iowa tight end scoring a touchdown. 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey added to the score with a 1-yard touchdown just before halftime, extending his touchdown streak to 14 consecutive games.

As one of only two undefeated teams after four weeks, the 49ers appear to be firing on all cylinders this season. Their offense, led by a formidable array of skill position players, is in top form, and their defense continues to excel. However, the Cowboys are a formidable opponent, boasting a strong defense and a talented offense. They enter this game fresh off a resounding 38-3 victory against the New England Patriots, bringing their season record to 3-1.
