Punt Block Leads To Eagles' TD


The Eagles travel out west to face the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium in an NFC showdown ...


SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- After a 13-yard sack by Connor Barwin and Trent Cole on third down to pin the 49ers back at their own 2-yard line, rookie tight end Trey Burton blocked Andy Lee's punt and it was recovered by Brad Smith in the end zone to put the Eagles ahead 7-0 with 12:19 left in the first quarter.

It's the first blocked punt touchdown since Ken Rose blocked a Sean Landeta punt and returned it for a touchdown against the Giants on November 22, 1992.

The Eagles have now scored a touchdown on special teams in back-to-back weeks following Chris Polk's 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Washington.
