The virtual boo-birds have been loud the last two weeks in Philadelphia as the Eagles now try to silence the criticism under the national spotlight of “Sunday Night Football” on NBC against San Francisco.
Philadelphia (0-2-1) finished with the first tie of the 2020 NFL season last Week against the Bengals, but still managed to gain ground in the race to win the NFC East. Carson Wentz has struggled mightily this season, failing to pass for more than 270 yards in any game and throwing twice as many interceptions (6) as he has touchdowns (3). He’s not getting much help behind an injured offensive line that has allowed 11 sacks and on-going injuries to playmakers Miles Sanders, Alshon Jeffrey and DeSean Jackson.
It’s no secret that the 49ers (2-1) have had their fair share of injuries. Both Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas were lost for the season in Week 2, and Nick Mullens has replaced an injured Jimmy Garoppolo at the quarterback position, but that didn;t stop San Francisco from hammering the Giants 36-9 in Week 3 to hold pace in the NFC West. In 11 games by Mullens for the 49ers, dating back to 2018, he has averaged over 244 yards a game and has thrown 14 touchdown passes.
Below is everything to know about this week’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the 49ers and Eagles in Week 4.
