49ers Miss Opportunities, Eagles Lead 7-0 After First Quarter

After a week long experiment in Youngstown, OH the San Francisco 49ers looked ready to play at Lincoln Financial Field against the Philadelphia Eagles; they just didn’t take advantage of their opportunities.

Frank Gore bust out for a big first quarter, breaking out a 40 yard run and 49 rushing yards on four carries in the period, while Alex Smith went 5/9 for 42 yards, hitting both Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis for big gains already. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get it done in the red zone after David Akers missed field goal, taking advantage of the Eagles still in-progress defense.

The same could be said about the Eagles as well, working their way through the Niners D for a wide open Clay Harbor for a 16 yard TD pass. Michael Vick is 6/8 for 65 yards with a interception to Carlos Rogers as well, though has been taking lots of shots down the field against the Niners weak secondary.
