SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) C.J. Beathard got a rude welcome in his first start in the NFL.

Beathard was battered all game by the blitzing Dallas Cowboys, getting sacked five times and knocked down several more in a 40-10 loss Sunday that was the most lopsided home defeat for the San Francisco 49ers in eight years.

“They brought a lot of pressure. I guess that was one of their game plan things. Their deal was to bring a lot of pressure, which we hadn’t seen them do much of,” Beathard said. “When you’re a rookie, obviously, you’re new to a system. Trying to see what you know. Puts you on your heels a little bit.”
