We hope the energy of the Philadelphia Eagles winning in Week 1 to start the season continues through Week 2 when they host the San Francisco 49ers. This will be the Eagles’ home opener, and the first time fans have been able to fill The Linc since 2019, so home advantage should apply on Sunday afternoon.
We got a good idea of ââthe kind of potential the 2021 Eagles have in their win over the Falcons, and not only did Jalen Hurts surpass the benchmark completion percentage the coaches had for him, but he also managed to spread the ball and get a lot of different guys touches. Two rookies scored touchdowns in their very first NFL action, and Hurts did a good job reading the Falcons’ defense and picking the best target. Plus, the defense put a lot of pressure on Matt Ryan and made early adjustments to tighten up his tackling techniques.
They’ll face a whole new set of challenges in Week 2 against the 49ers, who have two quarterbacks to plan and a super aggressive defensive front. Always. the Eagles have some edge with just one movie game for San Francisco to study, and once again, they’ll receive the boost of energy from The Linc’s home fans.
Here’s everything you need to know on how to watch the game.
