San Francisco 49ers: Week 4 (Away)

When looking at all of the tough challenges Philadelphia will be facing throughout the 2020 season against the top competitors across the league, it’s going to be difficult to top their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Watching the 49ers go from one of the league’s worst teams in 2018 as a result of Jimmy Garoppolo suffering a torn ACL to finishing last season as NFC champions shows why the Eagles will have their hands full in this one.

After coming up short the way they did in February during the Super Bowl to the Kansas City Chiefs, one can only imagine the high level of motivation San Francisco will be playing with throughout the 2020 season for a shot at redemption come February.

But as much praise as Garoppolo receives for running the 49ers’ offense, the Eagles realize the only chance they will have in this contest is if Philadelphia’s offense outperforms San Francisco’s defense.

As bad as it sounds, the one positive factor surrounding the struggles by the 49ers in 2018 was how it led to the team eventually landing Bosa for the draft, as the former Ohio State star wasted little time making an impact as a rookie to become a top defender in the league.

Based off the results of last season, there’s a good chance that San Francisco’s defense comes back even stronger in 2020 to cause all sorts of problems for Philadelphia and every other team standing in their way.
