Philadelphia Eagles

Has a team come plummetting down to earth any faster than the Eagles this season?

From 10-1 and a firm grip on the NFC to losing five of their last six games to lose control of both the conference as well as the NFC East, Philly has gone full freefall mode.

The team is ridiculously bad when it comes to the defense, with mediocre teams like the Arizona Cardinals, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks among the teams to defeat them.

Of course, the 49ers have to be wary of the revenge motive given they were the team that launched the Eagles' downfall when they traveled to Philadelphia and delivered a 42-19 beatdown on them.

But Philly should be a team that the Niners offense can exploit.
