In a primetime Sunday night matchup, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 42-10. The win brings the Niners' record to 5-0, while the Cowboys drop to 3-2.

These were PFF’s top standout players from the game.


Offensive spotlight: 49ers tight end George Kittle enjoyed a career day, catching three touchdowns on a team-high 18.7-yard average depth of target.

Kittle finished the day with three catches on four targets for 67 receiving yards and the aforementioned scores. Twenty-one of his yards came after the catch.

Defensive spotlight: 49ers linebacker Fred Warner was reminding people all night why he’s not just one of the best linebackers in the league but also one of the NFL's best defensive players, period.

After the final whistle, Warner’s stat line read: eight tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble for a preliminary 90.0-plus overall grade, pending reviews.

Rookie spotlight: There wasn’t much to write home about from rookies on either side, but 49ers kicker Jake Moody did make all six of his extra point attempts in the game.
