The Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers take each other on in Week 2. It is a meeting between two 1-0 teams. The 49ers got back to winning ways in Week 1 against the Lions as they aim to recover the ground they lost in 2020.
The Eagles swept aside the Falcons in a surprise victory on the road. Jalen Hurts impressed, and rookie head coach Nick Siriani got his first NFL win. Many experts and pundits expected Nick Siriani and his team to struggle this season, and they flipped that script in Week 1. Now they welcome a 49ers team to Philadelphia, and the atmosphere should be electric. It is a tough road test for the 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles key injuries
The 49ers have lost Jason Verrett and Dre Greenlaw. They are both on injured reserve. Emmanuel Mosely is a doubt as his status is questionable. On the bright side, the 49ers should get Javon Kinlaw back on their defensive line.
Nick Siriani's team is relatively healthy, and only Rodney McLeod is definitely out of the game. Safety colleague Marcus Epps is also a doubt to suit up against the 49ers.
