Eagles gets their first win of the season in a thrilling victory over the 49ers, 25-20

Philadelphia- The Eagles are first place in the NFC East after defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 25-20.

After a couple of three and out drives by the 49ers, the Eagles put together a nice drive that resulted in a 11- yard touchdown run by Carson Wentz. The Eagles came out aggressive and went for the two-point conversion instead of kicking the PAT, which shocked the 49ers. The conversion was successful and the Eagles went up 8-0 in the first quarter. The Eagles missed a tackle on the 49ers next drive and it resulted in a touchdown for San Francisco, 8-7. The Eagles' defense did just enough to hold onto the one-point lead going into the half.

In the second half, the Eagles' secondary had trouble containing the 49ers' offense. Nick Mullens threw a touchdown strike to George Kittle to go atop of the Eagles early in the third quarter, 14-8. Before the end of the third quarter, the Eagles tacked on a field goal to cut the 49ers' lead to three, 14-11. Midway through the fourth, Wentz threw a 42- yard touchdown pass to Travis Fulgham to take the lead, 18-14. The Eagles' defense caused Mullens to throw a pick six on the ensuing drive, which was the key factor with the Eagles getting their first win. The 49ers tacked on a touchdown, but was not successful with the two point conversion to make the game interesting late in the fourth quarter. The Eagles' defense held on and got their first victory of the season.
