The Philadelphia Eagles lost 42-19 on Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game.

The Eagles jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter, but the inability to score touchdowns instead of field goals hurt them in this game.

The 49ers scored touchdowns on six consecutive possessions and the the Eagles defense could not stop them.

Once the 49ers seized control of the momentum in the second quarter, the Eagles had no answers.

The Eagles offense could not keep pace with 49ers and had some ineffective possessions. They could get a running game going.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for 298 with one touchdown pass one and one rushing. A.J. Brown caught 8 passes for 114 yards and DeVonta Smith had 9 catches for 96 yards with a touchdown.

Haason Reddick and Fletcher Cox each recorded a sack. The defense had way too many missed tackles in the game.

The 49ers were led by QB Brock Purdy. He threw for 314 yards and 4 touchdown passes. Christian McCaffrey had 93 yards rushing with one touchdown and Deebo Samuel had 3 touchdowns.

The Eagles just beat the Cowboys, Chiefs and Bills, back-to-back-to-back. Injuries to the LBs really hurt today and the defense had no legs, after the first quarter.

Field goals instead of touchdowns on the first two drives hurt. You have to get on touchdowns on those, especially again team as good as the 49ers.

The Eagles need to regroup and get healthy as they have play another team on 10 days rest next week against the Dallas Cowboys.

This Eagles loss stinks, but I’m not going to overreact. The Eagles need to just file this one away and get ready for next week.
