The Cowboys and 49ers will renew their rivalry in an October game on Sunday Night Football.

Dallas at San Francisco will be the Sunday night game in Week Five of the 2023 NFL season.

Last season the 49ers beat the Cowboys in the divisional round of the playoffs, 19-12. A year earlier, the 49ers beat the Cowboys in the wild card round, 23-17.

If Dak Prescott can stay healthy, the Cowboys expect to be as good or better than they were in 2022. The 49ers are unsure whether Brock Purdy‘s elbow injury will be healed for the start of the season, or whether Trey Lance or Sam Darnold could be starting at quarterback.

Quarterback questions aside, both the Cowboys and 49ers expect to be competing for a playoff berth again in 2023.

Cowboys-49ers will kick off at 8:20 p.m. on October 8 on NBC and Peacock.

  1. It’s funny. 49ers players and fans continue to say that they would’ve beaten the Eagles if Brock Purdy didn’t get hurt.
    Yet, you never hear them mention the fact that Dallas lost Tony Pollard the week before. I know losing a RB isn’t the same as losing a QB, but let’s keep it real here. The 49ers got dominated on both sides of the ball against the Eagles. The Cowboys lost a VERY close game without Pollard. I’m not a fan of either team (I actually despise both), but in my impartial opinion, Dallas would’ve been playing in Philadelphia the following week if Pollard didn’t get hurt.

  2. Cool. Another prime time slap down of the Cowboys. Lovin’ it!

  3. The refs will try to keep it close, but this fashions to be another beat-down of dem ‘boys on a national stage – with or without Pollard.

    Haha! You actually acknowledge that losing half of RB committee is not the same as losing a QB but continue your weak argument.
