The San Francisco 49ers return to Santa Clara 2-0 following the team's 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was a rollercoaster of a victory that got off to a slow start for the offense, but San Francisco managed to limit quarterback Jalen Hurts and quiet the Eagles highly-touted defense en route to the victory.
