Week 8 Live Updates: San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles

The San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles have a long history, going back to 1976.

PHILADELPHIA -- The San Francisco 49ers are looking for their first win of the season on the road in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. I'd bet it's going to be a wet one at Lincoln Financial Field as there is a 100 percent chance of rain throughout the entire contest.

Keep it here for news, highlights and more.


There are some big names on the 49ers inactives list. Reuben Foster will not play on Sunday. He was listed as questionable with an ankle/rib injury. Brock Coyle will get the start. Trent Brown is also out which means that Garry Gilliam will get his first start as a member of the 49ers.

Here's the full list: Foster, Brown, Pita Taumoepenu, K'Waun Williams, Victor Bolden Jr., Aaron Lynch and Dexter McCoil.

And for the Eagles: Shelton Gibson, Ronald Darby, Steven Means, Jordan Hicks, Justin Hamilton, Elijah Qualls and Taylor Hart.

FIRST QUARTER ("--" denotes a new possession)

The 49ers offense got the ball to open the game. San Francisco went no-huddle on its first drive. C.J. Beathard hit Garrett Celek for a 24-yard gain up the right seam to midfield. Pierre Garçon couldn't corral the ensuing third-down pass which brought out the 49ers punt team. Beathard threw it slightly behind Hyde, but it was still a catchable ball.


There are plenty of lineup notes for the 49ers defense. Ahkello Witherspoon got his first-career start in place of Rashard Robinson. Eric Reid started at WILL linebacker in place of Ray-Ray Armstrong. Leon Hall started at nickel corner with Williams inactive.

Carson Wentz found Nelson Agholor for a 17-yard gain to midfield. San Francisco's defense held from there and forced a punt. The ball bounced into the end zone for a touchback.


San Francisco went three-and-out. A negative run on first down got the 49ers behind the sticks. Beathard's third-down pass to Matt Breida was well short of the line to gain.


Dontae Johnson broke up Wentz' pass on first down intended for Alshon Jeffrey. A six-yard keeper by Wentz and a 12-yard completion to Ertz moved the chains.

Wentz found Trey Burton over the middle for 15 yards and another Eagles first down.
