Aldon Smith helped exact some revenge against his former team in the opening quarter of Sunday’s matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence started things off, then wideout Michael Gallup cashed it in a few plays later.

Lawrence hit the arm of 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens, stripping him on the third-down play. Smith managed recover the loose ball. An official review confirmed the call of a fumble, giving the Cowboys possession just outside the red zone.

It was the second fumble recovery by the Cowboys in this game, and the second game in a row in which Smith has recovered an opponent’s fumble.

On the ensuing series, tight end Blake Bell took a direct snap as the offense drive the ball toward the goal line

With a fresh set of downs inside the 49ers’s five-yard-line, quarterback Andy Dalton found Gallup in the back of the end zone for the Cowboys’ second score of the afternoon.

The Cowboys now lead 14-0 with over six minutes to play in the first quarter.
