Eagles-49ers 2-Minute Drill
Here is a quick look at the Eagles win over the 49ers on Sunday night.
Eagles’ best number: 3 (takeaways by Eagles' defense)
Eagles' worst number: 183 (George Kittle receiving yards)
View from my living room:
I was more impressed by Mel Reid's win at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
1. Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham (2 catches, 57 yards, TD)
2. Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton (pick six)
3. 49ers tight end George Kittle (15 catches, 183 yards, TD)
Singleton provided what turned out to be the winning points when he grabbed an interception against Niners starting quarterback Nick Mullens and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was the first pick six for the Eagles since linebacker Nate Gerry had one against the Jets last October.
Eagles’ best play
Fulgham, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier Sunday, made an over-the-shoulder catch on a deep pass from Wentz, then tumbled into the end zone for a 42-yard TD.
Eagles' worst play
Niners wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk sprinted around right end with a lateral and hurdled Eagles defensive back Marcus Epps at the 5-yard line en route to a 38-yard touchdown.
Did you notice?
Right tackle Lane Johnson was in and out of the lineup with an ankle injury. ... The Eagles made a two-point conversion after their first TD instead of kicking the extra point. ... Rookie free agent running back Adrian Killens made his NFL debut. ... Wentz did a lot more running than usual. ... The Eagles tried to run the "Philly Special" with Wentz and Jalen Hurts, but it didn't work. ... Kittle dropped a two-point conversion pass from C.J. Beathard in the fourth quarter that turned out to be crucial.
Eagles tackle Jordan Mailata, on replacing Jason Peters: "I'm not trying to fill anyone's boots. I'm trying to make my own boots."
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan: "We definitely didn't play well and we'll have to go back to the drawing board."
