The 49ers have stars at every level of their defense.
The 49ers haven't allowed any team to score more than 17 points since the Los Angeles Rams hung 23 on them in Week 2. We have gone on and on about the need for Philly to avoid the slow start, but San Fran's defense is loaded with playmakers. Here are some of the more notable.
2. Chase Young, defensive end
The Niners' defense was scary enough, and then, they had to go and add this guy. In the three games that have followed his addition, he has racked three tackles, 1.5 sacks, and three additional quarterback hits.
The combo of him and Nick Bosa propose a tough challenge this coming Sunday.
3. Fred Warner, linebacker
Fred Warner is one of the best in the business. Since entering the NFL as a third-round selection in 2018, he has already stacked two Pro Bowl nods and a pair of First-Team All-Pro nominations.
The Eagles offense will have to keep its head on a swivel at all times. This guy's the epitome of a game-wrecker.
4. Charvarius Ward, cornerback
The last time the Eagles saw Charvarius Ward on the football field, he was rasing the Vince Lombardi Trophy as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. A little over nine months later, here we are. Dude is on the San Francisco 49ers roster.
Watch the matchup as he and Ambry Thomas figure to draw A.J. Brown/DeVonta Smith duty in this one. Deommodore Lenoir is a very good slot corner for San Fran as well.
5. Tashaun Gipson Sr., safety
Tashaun Gipson Sr. is one of those guys who has aged fairly well by NFL standards. An undrafted addition by the Cleveland Browns in 2012, he has seen five NFL locker rooms but has helped elevate what was already a good Niners secondary before his arrival.
So far this season, he has racked up 39 total tackles, a sack, three pass breakups, and an interception.
