49ers vs. Eagles live score, updates, highlights from NFL's 'Sunday Night Football' game

It was a fairly low-scoring affair through three quarters, but the Eagles were able to snatch a 25-20 win from the 49ers thanks to a late fourth-quarter surge that saw them score touchdowns on back-to-back plays.

It started with Carson Wentz delivering a 42-yard TD bomb to Travis Fulgham of all people. Fulgham was signed from the practice squad this week due to the team's lack of depth at wide receiver with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reagor all out. His touchdown gave Philadelphia an 18-14 lead with 5:42 remaining.

On the ensuing 49ers driver, second choice quarterback Nick Mullens, starting in the absence of Jimmy Garoppolo, threw an interception to Alex Singleton, who ran it back for a touchdown. Suddenly, the Eagles were up 25-14.

Enter third-string quarterback C.J. Beathard, whom the 49ers drafted in the third round back in 2017. Beathard stepped right into rhythm, completing nine of his first 10 passes to lead a touchdown drive just before the 2-minute warning hit. That allowed San Francisco to use the stoppage, along with their two remaining timeouts, to get the ball back with 1:40 remaining at their own 12-yard line. Beathard continued to look poised, getting the 49ers down to the Eagles' 33-yard line. But alas, his Hail Mary towards Deebo Samuel was batted away in the end zone.

With the win, the Eagles (1-2-1) finally broke their winless streak and captured the lead in the putrid NFC East . And Wentz might finally be able to get a few of the town's critics off his back after a decent outing given the lack of weapons around him; he finished 18-of-28 passing for 193 yards, a touchdown and an interception off a pass tipped at the line, and also added 37 yards rushing and a TD on the ground.

8:27 p.m. —  Well, not much going for the Eagles: two short runs, Wentz bounces a pass to Miles Sanders and they go three and out. Let's see if Nick Mullens can do any better.
