The San Francisco 49ers kicked off their 2018 preseason schedule last Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys at Levis Stadium. I was on the sidelines for this game, and I wanted to share a little of the action on the field and some candid moments with the players. I’ve put together a photo gallery from the game, featuring 182 images.
The 49ers fans got to see the Dallas Cowboys fans leave with a loss. I realize it is just a preseason game but this is arguably the best rivalry our fan base has been blessed to experience. For the players, it’s about competition for a job. This marked the first NFL experience for some of the players, and we get to enjoy their journey, watching them grind and shine. We wish them all the best.
The 49ers also unveiled changes to the stadium honoring Dwight Clark. The players had an “87” decal on their helmets, and you can see “87” on the padded borders around the field. Later this season, when the 49ers host the Los Angeles Rams, the team will unveil a statue commemorating “The Catch.”
Enjoy as the 49ers head off to Houston for joint practices and then a game with the Texans.
