PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brock Purdy threw for 314 yards and four touchdowns, Deebo Samuel finished with three scores and Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was checked for a concussion in the San Francisco 49ers’ 42-19 victory over Philadelphia Sunday afternoon.
The fierce rematch of the NFC Championship Game featured 49ers scoring on six consecutive offensive possessions and a pair of ejections that showed this year’s NFC title game may not be in Philadelphia after all. after all.
The 49ers (9-3) left Philadelphia sore 10 months ago after the NFC Championship Game with injuries to Purdy and his backup, and never had a chance in a 31-7 loss. San Francisco spent time criticizing the Eagles — Samuel called a rival cornerback “garbage” — and then entered Lincoln Financial Field as a rare favorite at the home of a 10-win team.
The Eagles (10-2) had a scare when Hurts jogged off the field in the fourth quarter and went straight to the locker room. He was cleared to play and returned to the field with almost 10 minutes left.
By the time the runner-up in the NFL MVP race last year returned, the Eagles were down 35-13 and headed for their first home loss of the season. Hurts connected with DeVonta Smith for a two-yard score on his return drive. He finished 26 of 45 for 298 yards.
Purdy put the final nail in the victory with a 46-yard pass to Samuel.
