SANTA CLARA, California – (AP) – Coach Jason Garrett saw all he needed by quarterback Dak Prescott in just one unit.
Prescott made most of his short appearance in Dallas pre-season opener by throwing a 30-yard touchdown pass to rookie Michael Gallup on his single run before the San Francisco 49ers rallied with two late touchdowns to beat Cowboys 24-21 on Thursday night.
"I thought it was a good run of our crime, a good mix of driving and passing," said Garrett. "Dak made some good decisions, he did a really nice run to keep the ride alive. We got the one-on-one opportunity along the sidelines. Michael made a really good release and it was a good throw and catch."

Nick Mullens threw a 7-yard TD pass to Richie James Jr . with 18 seconds left to get back the comeback. Jeremy McNichols did on a 1-yard drive at 4:24 to go to San Francisco.
San Francisco Jimmy Garoppolo did not go as well as Prescott in his first game action since signing a $ 137.5 million contract in five years off-season. Garoppolo finished 3 out of 6 passes on his only device.
"We try to do something different things and see what works and what does not," said Garoppolo. "We have not been in that situation in a year and you try to get things rolling."
More about 49ers was the fact that six players left injuries in the first half with the most about those who were shoulder-tight to tighten George Kittle and run back Matt Breida who can sideline them for "some time", according to coach Kyle Shanahan .
