After all of the anticipation and bad blood leading up to this game I really hoped that the Birds would dominate the 49ers and shut them up but no, they really let the 49ers come into their house and embarrass them keeping their win streak alive. The Birds are now 10-2 after falling to the 49ers, 42-19.Brock Purdy finished the day 19/27 for 314 yards and 4 TDs.
As expected linebacker depth continues to be a problem and San Francisco was able to exploit the Birds in that area.
Linebacker Nicholas Morrow did not have a great game. The Eagles could really benefit from Shaq Leonard signing right about now.
A major key going into this game was preventing Christian McCaffrey from having explosive plays and the Birds were unable to do so. He had 93 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown, he also had 40 yards on three catches.
George Kittle had 68 yards on 4 catches. Deebo Samuel had three touchdowns on the day, Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings both had a score.
Jalen Hurts had 318 total yards and 2 TDs.
D’Andre Swift only had 13 yards on 6 carries.
