During a press conference a few hours ago, the Eagles coach Nick Sirianni talked about his thoughts on the recent upset of his team to the 49ers. The 42-year-old coach praised the Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan, saying, “They did a good job of getting their guys some balls in space like for instance the last I thought that was a really good call by Kyle.”

He continued explaining Shanahan’s call, “We were in a 4-minute mode of trying to get to the quarterback, trying to create some confusion in the Run game and Kyle called the screen to Deebo in that scenario. Hats off that you got us as far as we’re trying to sell out for the run and they got us on a screen.
