The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t really have a pretty night in San Francisco to close Sunday’s Week 4 activity, yet they did, indeed, take care of business. In spite of a harsh beginning, in which Carson Wentz tossed his seventh block attempt in only four games, just as a late push by C.J. Beathard, who took over for a battling Nick Mullens in charge of Kyle Shanahan’s offense, Philadelphia ventured up when it made a difference. Working with a shoddy supporting cast, Wentz tossed an ideal final quarter score to place the Eagles in front, while the Birds’ safeguard penniless a dash of zero-turnover games with a threesome of them against Mullens, fixing a 25-20 surprise.
With the success, the Eagles’ first of a physical issue and turnover-perplexed 2020 season, Philly vaults into an unrealistic in front of the rest of the competition remaining in the woeful NFC East. The Niners, in the interim, tumble to .500 of every a serious NFC West that likewise observed the Arizona Cardinals lose on Sunday.
Here are some prompt takeaways from the Eagles’ genuinely necessary disturbed of San Francisco:
Why the Eagles won
Carson Wentz at last got the opportunity to play with training squadders? No. 11 was not immaculate on Sunday night, with an early pass unfortunately falling into the Niners’ hands and a couple of others going misguided, however simply like late in 2019, he additionally flourished when it made a difference most close by an improvised supporting cast. With just Greg Ward, John Hightower and scout-group call-ups Travis Fulgham and Deontay Burnett dynamic at wide beneficiary, Wentz did barely enough with the two his arm and legs, most strikingly gliding an ideal profound ball TD to Fulgham in the final quarter. (Fulgham, coincidentally, had possibly the best play by an Eagles recipient this season.)
Jim Schwartz’s protection merits the same amount of, if not more, credit for the success, notwithstanding. The linebackers were generally terrible with all due respect of George Kittle and the Niners’ movement running match-up, yet the front four overwhelmed a great part of the night, putting Nick Mullens under coercion (and in the end on the seat) and setting up three key takeaways that infused huge amounts of life into Philly.
Why the 49ers lost
Scratch Mullens may have filled in commendably for Jimmy Garoppolo against the Giants, however against the Eagles with pressure in his face, it was a completely extraordinary story. Kyle Shanahan made a fine showing plotting up speedy strikes and run-based movements promptly in Sunday night’s challenge, however at whatever point Mullens dropped back and didn’t discover Kittle, things were revolting. C.J. Beathard looked sharp and agreeable in the last couple of moments in the wake of taking over under focus, yet that was short of what was needed. Discussing the run game, Shanahan most likely could’ve gone to Jerick McKinnon only a touch more all through the night.
On the opposite side of the ball, San Francisco wasn’t awful, particularly considering their physical issue report. Yet, they presumably should’ve had a touch more warmth on Wentz, who was playing behind a totally reinforcement O-line. In the auxiliary, in the interim, they kept Eagles focuses before them for nearly the whole night – aside from at one of the most basic focuses in the game, when Wentz discovered Fulgham for that immense final quarter score.
Third-and-10, Niners ball at their own 45, with San Francisco up by three and just 10 minutes on the clock. Only a solitary initially down would’ve permitted the 49ers to continue draining the clock and ice away their lead. Rather, Mullens held the ball with no one open, and Eagles cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc, coming in hot on an uncommon Jim Schwartz rush, popped the ball directly out of his hands and into the holding up arms of his partner. That turnover set up Philly’s approval drive and totally swung energy back in the guests’ courtesy, with the Eagles additionally taking Mullens out San Francisco’s ensuing drive.
Play of the game
In a game that was low-scoring until the fourth, with some messy offense from the two sides, Wentz’s magnificence of a sideline-contact TD to Fulgham was without any problem.
The Eagles (1-2-1) will confront another tall undertaking in Week 5, when they travel to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0), who are likewise falling off an early bye week on account of their deferred game against the Titans. The 49ers (2-2), in the interim, will remain at home to have the Miami Dolphins (1-3), who missed the mark against the undefeated Seahawks in Week 4.
