This is the live stream for the 49ers Week 2 road game against the Philadelphia Eagles. I will provide updates and analysis throughout the game.
9:35 49ers inactives
CB Ambry Thomas, CB Emmanuel Moseley, DT Zach Kerr. RG Aaron Banks
QB Gardner Minshew, OT/OG Brett Toth, DT Marlon Tuipulotu, CB Mac McCain, FS Rodney McLeod
9:39 The 49ers acquired RB Trenton Cannon off waivers from Baltimore earlier this week and he is active. I’d expect to see him having a big role on special teams today.
Zach Kerr being inactive means Javon Kinlaw is active. What type of impact will he have remains to be seen.
10:03 49ers will get the ball to start the game.
10:07 Daniel Brunskill gets beat on first down, Jimmy Garoppolo throws a screen pass into the dirt, and the 49ers offense starts the game with a 3 and out.
10:08 Josh Norman called for pass interference on the first target of the game to extend the Philadelphia possession.
10:11 The 49ers run defense looks much improved from week one. Arik Armstead with the stop and the 49ers offense will be back on the field at the 20
10:17 Daniel Brunskill gets no push on first down and Elijah Mitchell losses a yard. Garoppolo sails the throw to Mohamed Sanu and it’s another 3 and out for the 49ers offense.
10:24 Kevin Givens in at defensive tackle and the Eagles start to attack the middle of the defense. Back to back runs up the middle for 6 yards.
10:27 Eagles move the ball down to the 49ers 27 yard line, but the defense holds and forces a FG try. It’s good. Eagles 3 49ers 0
10:28 Deommodore Lenoir had very good coverage on that 3rd down stop. He had some help from Fred Warner who put pressure on Jalen Hurts.
10:35 Yet another 3 and out for the 49ers offense. Jimmy Garoppolo is really struggling to get his feet underneath him so far.
10:46 End of first quarter. Eagles 3 49ers 0. The 49ers run defense started strong but is struggling. No first downs from the offense. Outgained 117 -14.
10:49 Eagles 47 yard field goal attempt is blocked by Javon Kinlaw. Huge stop.
11:00 49ers offense finally gets a first down. After moving the ball into Philadelphia territory for the first time, Mohamed Sanu gets called for an illegal crack back block setting up 1st and 25. Garoppolo misses a wide open Trent Sherfield and Kyle Shanahan calls a run to Deebo Samuel on 3rd and 8. Not sure about the play call there.
11:04 Hurts to Watkins for 91 yards on first down from his own endzone.
11:08 After the big play, the 49ers defense stands tall and holds the Eagles from scoring.
11:25 The 49ers offense and Jimmy Garoppolo struggled throughout the first half. Garoppolo finishes off a 97 yard drive with a 11 yard touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings. Drive was highlighted by a 41 yard completion to Deebo Samuel to set up the touchdown throw.
11:26 Halftime: 49ers 7 Eagles 3
11:35 During the pregame show this morning I said to look for the Philadelphia offense to move the ball well between the 20’s but struggle from the 30 yard line in. This has played out during the first half. San Francisco offense has struggled more than expected to get the ball moving on the ground. Current have only 11 called runs to 21 passes. Game situation at the end of the half played into that a bit, but the 49ers offensive line has struggled to create movement.
11:42 49ers defense forces first 3 and out of the game. Nick Bosa with a hit on Hurts nearly forces a turnover. Deep throw on third down knocked away by Lenoir and Jimmie Ward.
11:51 Garoppolo nearly picked off on third down. Wishnowsky pins the Eagles offense deep for the second time today. Let’s see if the defense can get a quick stop this time.
12:01 Middle of the 49ers defense is still struggling with stopping the run. After 7 runs get the ball into 49ers territory, the Eagles start trying to throw and it doesn’t work. 49ers back on offense with ball at their own 9.
12:24 For the second time today the 49ers offense goes on a 90+ yard drive for a touchdown. Garoppolo with a sneak to finish this one off. 49ers 14-3
12:31 Nick Bosa with a sack of Jalen Hurts to end the Eagles possession. Terrific rush up the middle by Kentavius Street and Arik Armstead set it up.
12:33 This game turned with the goalline stand.
12:47 Eagles’ personal fouls set the 49ers up, and Gould hits a 46 yard field goal to put San Francisco up 17-3.
12:54 Eagles with an easy drive to make this a 6-point game. 49ers 17 Eagles 11
12:58 Garoppolo picks up the 3rd and 1 with a sneak. At the two minute warning and Philadelphia has no timeouts left. That should just about wrap it up, but as we saw last week crazy stuff can happen.
1:05 49ers move to 2-0 with a 17-11 win.
Thanks for following along. Will be back soon with the game story.
