NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Things have already started going off the rails a bit for the NFL in Week 4 — with the Steelers-Titans and Patriots-Chiefs games both having to be postponed —, so why not wrap up Sunday’s slate of game with a Sunday Night Football game featuring the very-injured Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1) on the road against a very-injured San Francisco 49ers (2-1).


The Eagles don’t really have any wide receivers, as BGN’s Brandon Lee Gowton explained:

So, here’s how Carson Wentz’s receiving corps is shaping up for the Eagles’ appearance on Sunday Night Football (career stats next to name):

Greg Ward — 59 targets, 42 recs, 362 yards (8.6 average), 2 TD
John Hightower — 7 targets, 3 recs, 17 yards, 0 TD
Deontay Burnett — 23 targets, 15 recs, 210 yards (14.0 average), 0 TD
Travis Fulgham — 0 targets
Hakeem Butler — 0 targets

This is probably fine.

Philly also put Jason Peters on IR with a toe injury just a day before the matchup, and don’t forget, the only healthy corners on the roster — since Avonte Maddox and Trevor Williams are out — are Darius Slay, Nickell Robey-Coleman, and Cre’Von LeBlanc.

Things don’t look a whole lot better for the Niners, who will be without Jimmy GaroppoloNick Mullens will get his second start —, Raheem Mostert, and Jordan Reed. There are also some notable defenders who will miss the game... and the opportunity to plow through the Eagles’ thin(ing) offensive line.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
