Eagles Vs 49ers: Did You Know?

Some interesting tidbits from today’s Eagles vs 49ers game on Sunday Night Football.

49ers RB Brian Westbrook spent 8 seasons in Philly and is the Eagles all time leader in yards from scrimmage.

The Eagles single game record for yardage(583) came against the 49ers in 2005.

Andy Reid’s first post-grad coaching job was at San Francisco State.

San Francisco is 17-11-1 all time against the Eagles, but Philly has won the past 4 matchups.

Andy Reid is 15-6 against NFC West teams.

Eagles strong side LB Moise Fokou and 49ers TE Vernon Davis were college teammates at Maryland. Eagles OT Winston Justice and Niners G Chilo Rachal were on the same offensive line at USC.

This is the first time that the 49ers have played on Sunday night since 2005 and that game was in Mexico City.

Opposing quarterbacks have only thrown 7 passing TDs on the 49ers in
San Francisco’s past 12 home games, which ranks as the fewest in the
NFL during that time span.

The first time these teams met was an Eagles home win almost 49 years ago to the day.
