The 49ers finally have found their running game.

They had seven carries for 38 yards on their 10-play, 91-yard scoring drive. That includes Christian McCaffrey‘s 2-yard touchdown run on the first play of the fourth quarter.

The 49ers lead 16-9.

Dallas opted to punt after reaching the San Francisco 40, while facing a fourth-and-five. They took the delay of game and Ray-Ray McCloud made a fair catch at the San Francisco 9.

The big play in the touchdown drive was tight end George Kittle‘s incredible 30-yard catch. Kittle batted the ball with one hand, juggled it a few times and finally brought it in.

Ten plays later, the 49ers were in the end zone.

Dallas had three defensive penalties in the drive — an offsides on DeMarcus Lawrence, a holding penalty on Donovan Wilson and a holding penalty on Johnathan Hankins.

  1. McCarthy could have given Prescott 30 extra seconds calling time out. Can Prescott get the TD in 3:04 ?

  2. All of you who think Dak “Pick” Prescott is worth what he’s being paid must enjoy losing.

  3. How ‘bout dem Cowboys? It’s not a choke, they’re just perennially overrated.
