The 49ers entered the locker room at halftime facing a 21-13 deficit and their missteps in the second half of earlier games this season were well known throughout the league.

The 49ers turned a huge corner by scoring their first second half touchdown on a pass from Colin Kaepernick to Stevie Johnson in the third quarter to cut the lead to just one point. The points continued, as the home team added two field goals to make the score 26-21, which would be the final.

Entering the game, the 49ers had scored just three total points following the half in their first three games. They scored 13 in this game, and at the same time, shake off many of the demons that have plagued them thus far.

Their opponents were also known for the second-half magic, as the Eagles had outscored their opponents 74-24 in the first three contests, completing two 14-point comebacks.

But the 49ers’ defense would completely shut down the Eagles offense, preventing any possible comeback, and shaking some of their own demons as well.
