What to Know
After two games on the road, the San Francisco 49ers are heading back home. They will take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday at Levi's Stadium. The 49ers will be seeking to avenge the 33-10 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Oct. 29 of 2017.
You can't lose the contest if you win every quarter, and that was precisely San Francisco's strategy against the New York Giants last week. San Francisco put the hurt on New York with a sharp 36-9 win. The oddsmakers were on San Francisco's side, but they didn't give the team enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide. Their success was spearheaded by the efforts of WR Brandon Aiyuk, who punched in one rushing touchdown, and RB Jeff Wilson, who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD. Aiyuk had some trouble finding his footing against the New York Jets two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
Special teams collected 12 points for San Francisco. K Robbie Gould delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
