The Fat Lady is Singing
The 49ers lost their 8th game of the season and with that loss they are now officially eliminated from the playoffs. The 49ers tried making a game of it in the second half, but fell short.
The first half however was embarassing. They only scored three points and turned the ball over four times, but despite that they were still in the game after the third quarter. Only down 20-13. But McNabb and DeSean had enough. They hooked up on a big pass play which setup a touchdown which put them up 27-13 and that was just enough to get the win.
The biggest positive of this game was that Frank Gore rushed for over 100 yards, the first time in 23 games that the Philly D gave up a 100 yard rusher. Also nice to see that even though they were down by 17 at half, they still made a game of it in the second half. The 49ers finish the season against the Lions and Rams and now are playing for an 8-8 season, which will give them some hope for heading into next season.
