* Running back Frank Gore rushed for 107 yards, giving him back-to-back games in excess of 100 yards for the first time since the 2006 season. It?s the 19th 100-yard game of his career. Joe Perry owns the franchise record of 20 games with 100-plus yards rushing.

* Receiver Josh Morgan had a career-best 183 all-purpose yards. He had seven receptions for 61 yards, and he also had 122 yards on kickoff returns, including a 52-yarder at the start of the second half.

* The 49ers reported two hamstring injuries on the preliminary injury report. Rookie running back Glen Coffee did not return after sustaining his first-half strain, while kicker Joe Nedney managed to handle all of his duties despite being announced as questionable to finish the game in the second half.

* Bit player Michael Vick had no impact on the game, though the Eagles did not waste much time getting him on the field. Vick lined up in the backfield, along with starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, on the first snap of the game. Vick carried two times for 2 yards before leaving the game for good in the first quarter after sustaining a thigh bruise.
