Why Philadelphia Will Win
San Francisco is one of the few teams as banged up as Philadelphia, if not more so.
Jeff Wilson came up with two touchdowns last week for the 49ers, but he only ran for 15 yards for an offense that’s still missing its starting backfield. TE George Kittle is playing, but he’s still hurting with his knee injury, QB Jimmy Garappolo is still out, and the defensive line is soon to be exposed after getting a week off against the New York Giants.
As long as the Eagles can stop turning the ball over, they should be able to move the ball on this D if they can keep Carson Wentz from getting popped.
Why San Francisco Will Win
Philadelphia just doesn’t know how to win. It’s not opportunistic, it’s not clutch, and it’s not coming up with the key stops.
It doesn’t win the field position battle, and the defense isn’t doing enough to make up for the other issues when the offense isn’t coming through. The secondary has yet to generate an interception – the Eagles are dead-last in the NFL in turnover margin.
The 49ers turned it over once so far.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
QB Nick Mullens, San Francisco
When he plays, he puts up numbers. He might have thrown too many interceptions in 2018, but thrown into the fire this year, he has just one pick and just one touchdown pass in his 1.5 games. However, he hit the Giants for 343 yards last week. With Kittle and Deebo Samuel back, getting to 300 yards again is possible against this Eagle secondary.
What’s Going To Happen
San Francisco is starting to get its players back, but it’s still missing way too much to run away with this and hide. It looked great against the two bad New York teams, and now it gets to look great against a bad – but hurt – Philadelphia team.
