“We didn’t coach good enough. We didn’t play good enough,” Head Coach Nick Sirianni said. “You can’t play that way and coach that way against a really good team.”
The visitors piled on, with quarterback Brock Purdy throwing for four touchdowns and wide receiver Deebo Samuel scoring three touchdowns.
Sirianni continued, “They got after us good today.”
It was the Eagles’ (10-2) first home loss of the year. They will now go to Dallas to play the 9-3 Cowboys the following Sunday night. After defeating the Seahawks on Thursday night, the Cowboys now trail the Eagles by just one game.
This is how the match went down:
GOAL ON THE FIELD! Jake Elliott’s 26-yard attempt was flawless. A.J. Brown’s 38-yard reception on third-and-9 and Kenneth Gainwell’s 11-yard gain on third down set the pace for the drive. The Eagles hadn’t scored a touchdown in the red zone since Week 8 until this past Sunday. 49ers 0 – Eagles 3
BLOCKS! After returning home, Haason Reddick defeated Brock Purdy on a second-and-10! The 49ers were forced to punt after failing to convert on third-and-two.
GOAL ON THE FIELD! Elliott made another connection from 39 yards out. The offensive line was shifted from the San Francisco 14-yard line to the 29-yard line by a costly slip by Jalen Hurts in the backfield. 49ers 0 – Eagles 6
“That was tough on us to start the game fast and be only up six points,” Sirianni stated.
The 49ers ultimately score a 2-yard touchdown to penalise the Eagles. Brandon Aiyuk was located by Purdy in the end zone’s back corner. The ruling made on the pitch was upheld, but the play was reviewed. Josh Sweat was called for an offside, giving the 49ers a second opportunity to reach the end zone on third down. Eagles 6 – 49ers 7
With 38 seconds remaining in the half, the 49ers extended their lead. After finding a gap, Christian McCaffrey managed to go into the end zone. Eagles 6 – 49ers 14
