Fooch’s update: Go ahead and use this for Saturday preseason games until the 49ers get going.
The NFL preseason returns on Friday with a fairly light day of action. The San Francisco 49ers will be back in action on a busy Saturday, but for this evening, we’ve got some fun matchups.
The national game on NFL Network will be the Miami Dolphins traveling to face the Dallas Cowboys. The big thing to watch in this one is Dak Prescott. The Cowboys rookie quarterback had a strong performance last week against the Los Angeles Rams, completing 10 of 12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns. I think a lot of us will be looking to see if he can follow up with another quality performance. Tony Romo is the starter in Dallas, but given his injury history, a viable young backup would be a big boost.
