The 49ers are 2-1 after proving that they can perform despite having a significant part of their depth chart sidelined by injury. San Francisco beat the NY Giants 36-9 last week. The 49ers put up 420 yards overall and held onto the ball for over 39 minutes. Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown while playing in place of Jimmy Garoppolo, and Brandon Aiyuk scored his first NFL touchdown. The team’s defense has also been holding it’s own. The 49ers are 2nd in the NFL in scoring defense entering Week 3 (15.3 points allowed/game) and 3rd in total defense (304.0 yards allowed/game).
The Eagles are 0-2-1 after tying the Cincinnati Bengals 23-23 last Sunday. QB Carson Wentz, who signed a four-year $128 million dollar contract extension last summer, has the worst passer rating in the NFL right now at 63.9. While Wentz managed to throw a touchdown pass, he was 29-for-47 and 225 yards with two interceptions last Sunday. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is committed to keeping Wentz as the starting QB but even fans are questioning his decision making ability after the head coach opted to punt with just 19 seconds left in overtime rather than going for a first down to extend the drive.
