It should be a fun one

We’re here. It’s the game of the week. The San Francisco 49ers are as healthy as they can be heading into Philadelphia in December. The Eagles have been playing with fire for more than a month and are running into a team on a three-game winning streak.

There are stars all over the field on both sides of the ball. Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Trent Williams all have arguments to be first or second team All-Pro players.

The Eagles have a scary defensive line with veteran secondary members. These are two of the best defensive lines in the NFL. Jalen Carter is a rookie and already among one of the best interior linemen in the league. Javon Hargrave, who the Eagles replaced with Carter, is a top-3 defensive tackle based on win percentage.

Will the Eagles start slow again? If so, the Niners must make them pay.
