Welcome to Niner Noise’s live game thread for the 49ers’ Week 2 matchup against the Eagles. Discuss the game with writers and fans in the comments section!
The 1-0 San Francisco 49ers remain in the Eastern Time Zone to face the 1-0 Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA. Week 2 of the 2021 NFL regular season kicks off for the Niners at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021.
The 49ers will look to play an entire four quarters of dominating football against the Eagles, a week after the Niners allowed a 31-17 lead turn into a one-score victory in the final two minutes of their Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions. The Eagles, led by mobile second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts, hope to keep their offense rolling after scoring 25 unanswered points in the final 30 minutes of their showdown with the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday.
San Francisco will also need to overcome a slew of injuries to key contributors, including top cornerback Jason Verrett, No. 2 corner Emmanuel Moseley, WILL linebacker Dre Greenlaw, and starting running back Raheem Mostert.
