Cowboys Stud: Jourdan Lewis, Cornerback
Without Trevon Diggs who suffered a torn ACL earlier this year, the Cowboys were fortunate to be able to turn to Jourdan Lewis. The former third-round pick lost his job to DaRon Bland who has been playing very well but can still perform at a high level. He proved that on Sunday, even if he was only one of a couple of players who stood out in a positive way.
Early in the first half, Lewis made his first big play when he saved a touchdown as he ripped the ball out of Christian McCaffrey's hands near the goal line. Tony Pollard unfortunately gave the ball right back when he fumbled (although, it looked as though the defender didn't have clear possession before going out of bounds) but Lewis still did his part on that drive to give his team a chance.
He again stepped up late in the second half with Dallas trailing 21-7. With just over a minute to play, the 49ers were going for it on third-and-two and Brock Purdy threw a bullet right on the number to Brandon Aiyuk. It should have been a first down for the Niners, but Lewis was able to get his hand in there and knock the ball out.
Dallas then had one final shot to score before the half after Deuce Vaughn fielded a punt and returned it 10 yards to the San Francisco 25. They weren't able to capitalize but Lewis at least gave them a chance to.
