Eagles Passing Attack vs. 49ers Secondary
The linebackers, secondary, offensive line and coaches have all been blamed for the Eagles 1-2 start, but it can be argued that the bread and butter of this team- the passing attack- is really the reason for the disappointing start. Despite having arguably the best combination of play makers on offense in the league, the Eagles are only 19th in the league in passing yards per game at 226 yards per contest. Part of the reason for the struggles have been the teams inability to get the ball to DeSean Jackson down the field, and the health of Michael Vick.
Both of those issues will need to be solved tomorrow if the Eagles finally want to get the offense going.

Final: Philadelphia Eagles 23, San Francisco 24
Summary: Believe it or not, but the Philadelphia Eagles are now 1-3.
A 12 yard touchdown run by Frank Gore gave the San Francisco 49ers a 24-23 lead- their first of the game- with 3:05 to play, and a fumble by Jeremy Maclin at the 49ers 32 yard line with just over 2 minutes to go sent this Eagles team to their third loss in a row...
