San Francisco 49ers started their 2020 NFL season on the wrong foot after losing to the Cardinals during their Week 1 game. However, the team has improved offensively in the last two weeks, and they thrashed the Jets and the Giants to go 2-1.
As we go to week 4, the 49ers will be looking for an easy win against the Eagles during Sunday Night Football. But anything is possible with the new season that just resumed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
We might even see the Philadelphia Eagles taking the points home, but it’s quite unlikely with the squad’s new addition of players. The newcomer for the Week game is Wide Receiver Deebo Samuel, who is returning on the field after a foot injury.
QB Nick Mullens is also starting his second consecutive game on Sunday Night after Jimmy Garropolo was sidelined after an ankle injury. Mullens will be looking to partner up with Deebo to create an offensive team.
Additionally, TE George Kittle, who agreed to a 5-year contract extension worth $75 million, will be making his return to the lineup as Deebo Samuel gets his season debut against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Kittle is returning for the Week 4 game after suffering a knee injury during Week 1, which forced him not to be fit for the past two games.
On the other hand, Samuel had suffered a foot injury and underwent surgery during the offseason. Now he will be activated from Injury Reserve come Sunday to play against the Eagles during the Week 4 game.
Samuel caught 57 balls for 802 yards on his rookie campaign and 3 touchdowns while contributing to another 3 scores making him the Niner’s best receiver that season.
Last week, we saw Kyle Shanahan’s offensive gameplay with Mullens throwing for 343 yards and 1 touchdown to help the 49ers win against the Giants. Even with Garropolo ruled out because of an ankle injury, the team will be bringing on Kittle and Samuel, who are great offensive players, to help them win their game against the Eagles.
You can imagine a 49ers team with both Kittle and Samuel looking to thrash the Eagles mercilessly on Sunday Night Football, while Mullens throws for wider yards to get the touchdowns.
The 49ers may have several players injured, but that doesn’t change the fact that they are a threat to any team in the NFL. Players on Injury Reserve are RB Tevin Coleman, RB Raheem Mostert (knee – MCL), and tight end Jordan Reed (knee).
Some of the key players they have lost to injuries, and have been ruled out of the Week 4 game against the Eagles are Nick Bosa (knee-ACL), Richard Sherman (calf), Dee Ford (back), Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring), Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), and Dre Greenlaw (quad).
From the look of things, the 49ers are a better team when it comes to the offense than to defense, but that doesn’t mean the Eagles have an easy chance with them come on Sunday Night Football.
