The Eagles vs 49ers game is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET / 5:20 p.m. PT today (Sunday, Oct. 4).
It's on NBC, as week 4's installment of Sunday Night Football.

It's game time and Sunday Night Football's Eagles vs 49ers live stream carries a big question to the field, practically painted on Carson Wentz. Can the Eagles' quarterback prove himself and find a way to actually win? For the sake of Igles fans everywhere, we hope so. 

Philadelphia comes into the game with a 0-2-1 record, desperate for a notch in their winning column. Their tie with the Bengals in week three was a welcome break from a pair of losses starting out. Does that tie mark a turning point for Philadelphia? 

One thing that can push the Eagles into positive territory is stronger performance by starting QB Carson Wentz, who currently has the worst passer rating in the NFL. Fans may be wondering about the investment in Wentz, who last year signed a $128 million, four-year contract extension.

Of course even the best passes require someone to catch them, and Wentz is running out of first-string receivers. Tight end Dallas Goedert sustained a small ankle fracture in last Sunday's game--easier to recover from than a bad sprain, but still enough to keep him out for a couple of weeks. (On defense, cornerback Avonte Maddox also suffered an ankle injury.) And wide receiver DeSean Jackson sustained a hamstring injury that could keep him out of the Niners game.

The 49ers are dealing with their own heavy toll of injuries, but holding up much better. The Niners trounced the New York Giants 36-9 for their second straight win of the season. That's despite being down a gaggle of key players, including their starting quarterback and running back and their star tight end. But the 49ers bench is deep, with second-string players still able to carry the day.

With starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo out of commission, Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown against the Giants. But wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was the star of the game. The rookie had five receptions for 70 yards, and three carries for another 31 yards and a touchdown. We wouldn't be surprised to see more great plays from Aiyuk in the future.
