49ers vs. Eagles: Niners Storm Back in Third Quarter, Trail 23-17

After some adjustments at halftime Jim Harbaugh and his San Francisco 49ers have charged back into the game after the Philadelphia Eagles jumped out to a big first half lead. Alex Smith lead the way on two touchdown drives, the Niners D is keeping it close, and the Eagles lead has widdled down to six by the score of 23-17 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Smith connected with Josh Morgan for a 30 yard touchdown drive, set up by a huge reception by rookie running back Kendall Hunter for 40 yards. And after forcing the Eagles into a four-and-out the Niners responded again, marching down the field for a nine yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis.

The 49ers were looking very outmatched in the first half but are firing on all cylinders in the second. Look for Alex Smith to keep opening up the field and hopefully stealing a victory in Philly.
