Eagles Able to Escape From San Francisco With Ugly 27-24 Win

After the Eagles gave up an early touchdown to the 49ers, they were able to score a touchdown on their first drive, and followed that with a field goal on their next drive. They took a 17-10 lead to halftime, and after a slow third quarter, things got interesting in the fourth quarter.

Quintin Mikell scored a touchdown on defense to give the Eagles a 24-10 lead, but things were far from over. The Eagles defense allowed two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but a David Akers field goal in between was the deciding factor.

Overall, Kolb played pretty well. He didn’t make any amazing plays but was efficient throwing the football. Compared to last week, he was able to move the ball much better. He was able to see down the field better and make some deeper throws.

LeSean McCoy played great and it seems that he will be a huge asset to the offense week in and week out. He had 23 touches on the night and was able to rack up 138 total yards.

The defense and special teams struggled on the night. They played just well enough to get by. When the 49ers had their final opportunity on offense, the defense stepped up and a Trevor Laws hit on Alex Smith forced an interception to Trevard Lindley.

We knew this would be a tough game going in, despite the 49ers having an 0-4 record. However, you didn’t want to see the Eagles give them their first win and they didn’t.

More analysis to come.

    No amazing plays from Kolb? How about the throw to Celek on bootleg back across field on first drive? How about Vick like play on TD to Celek when he should have been sacked? I recall a 19 yard run on 3rd and 18 which setup a FG later? A 20 yard throw to Jackson in the middle of the field that he fell down on and had he not he would have been gone. Two throws to celek that hit him in the hands (one by Willis down the seem in 2nd or 3rd and another late vs Spikes) that were both put in the perfect spot. Kolb completed 68% of his passes and ran the offense very well. Give credit where credit is due. I’m sure if this was Vick you would be one of the people saying it’s the single greatest game very played by any qb in the history of football. Andy was so quick to point out Vick had a 100+ passer rating which Kolb also had.
