This is the game plan for a Philadelphia Eagles upset in Week 4.

Last week was a must-win game for the Philadelphia Eagles, and instead, they were only able to force a tie. This season has already been the complete opposite of what fans expected. This Sunday night, the Eagles face another must-win game, this time versus the San Francisco 49ers.

San Francisco is one of the most complete teams in the league in terms of roster construction and coaching. Like Philly, they’re also dealing with their own injuries that could affect their chances of success.

These are two teams that have been polar opposites through the first three weeks, but anything can happen on any given Sunday. In 2019, ‘the Birds’ started 1-2 and then beat the Green Bay Packers in primetime on Thursday Night Football. Sure, this season is off to a much worse start than last year, but the Eagles are no stranger to being the underdog as every fan knows.

Whenever it feels like all hope is lost, this team plays its best football. The injuries are piling up once again and it will have to be the ‘next man up’ mentality that guides them. Their backs are against the wall once again and it’s time for them to work some magic.

Fans are itching for the Eagles to finally play a complete game. 8:20 PM EST on Sunday Night cannot come soon enough. With that being said, let’s take a look at what the formula is for the first Philadelphia Eagles win of the 2020 NFL Season.
