Good morning! It’s game day! The San Francisco 49ers host the Dallas Cowboys Thursday evening at 7 p.m. in their preseason opener. We’ll have a whole lot of content throughout the day on who to watch, and then of course, plenty of follow-up. We’ll have our KSWOF player of the game, which goes to the player who performs best in the second half of the game. On Friday and into the weekend, we’ll break down who improved their situation best — whether it be players on the bubble for a roster spot or players competing for a starting opportunity.
What’s your viewing plan tonight? Do you just watch it at home doing your normal thing? Do you have a viewing party with friends? Or does the preseason not get quite as much of your attention?
