Brock Purdy is no longer the nobody from the back row, but the undisputed leader of the San Francisco 49ers. On the big stage against the Cowboys he succeeds in almost everything.

The NFL fairy tale of quarterback Brock Purdy has a new chapter. In the San Francisco 49ers’ convincing 42:10 win against the Dallas Cowboys, the 23-year-old threw four touchdown passes for the first time in his career.

By beating their toughest opponent to date, the 49ers cemented their title ambitions. Only the Philadelphia Eagles, who won 23:14 at the Los Angeles Rams, also have five wins after five games this NFL season.

“One thing at a time. We try not to look too far ahead,” Purdy said. 49ers tight end George Kittle also had a strong performance in the nationally televised game, scoring three touchdowns.

Kansas City Chiefs win against Minnesota Vikings

Purdy went from third quarterback to regular player last season due to injuries to his competitors and has not lost any of his ten main round games since the previously unknown professional slipped into the starting lineup. He was once selected last in the talent selection, the so-called draft. Since Purdy took the job with the 49ers in December, there has been no team in the NFL that has scored more points or won games than the 49ers, according to the US news agency AP.

The Kansas City Chiefs won 27:20 against the Minnesota Vikings. The defending Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce, who recently received a lot of attention beyond the football world because of the relationship rumors with pop superstar Taylor Swift, had to be examined for an injury to his foot. But Kelce came back and scored a touchdown.
