Dave Weinberg’s 49ers-Eagles 2-Minute Drill
Eagles’ best number: 114 (A.J. Brown receiving yards)
Eagles’ worst number: 6 (49ers scored TDs on six straight possessions)
View from my living room:
I prepared for the game by crawling into a cubby hole/attic in the wall behind one of our bedrooms to haul out Christmas decorations. The opening is a lot smaller than it was 20 years ago.
- 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy (19-for-27, 314 yards, 4 TDs, 0 interceptions)
- 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (138 combined yards from scrimmage, 3 TDs)
- 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey (133 combined yards from scrimmage, 1 TD)
Eagles’ best play
Wide receiver A.J. Brown got the crowd excited by turning a short pass into a 38-yard gain on the first series that set up Jake Elliott’s 26-yard field goal.
Eagles’ worst play
Deebo Samuel broke three tackles to turn a short pass from Purdy in to a 48-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
The Eagles cut the 49ers’ lead to 21-13 in the third quarter during a controversial series that featured team security director Dom DiSandro getting involved in a sideline scuffle with 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw. Greenlaw was ejected and DiSandro was order to leave the field to cheers from the fans. The Niners weren’t intimidated, however. They answered the challenge on their next possession with Samuel’s 48-yard TD.
