The Eagles (1-1) were brought back down to earth in coach Nick Sirianni’s first home game at Lincoln Financial Field, as the 49ers rugged defense stifled Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith in a 17-11 win.

Here’s what went right and went wrong on Sunday.

A versatile wide receiver, only Reagor knows why he ran his go-route so close to the sidelines, forcing the Eagles second-year player to step out of bounds twice on an electric passing play, taking six points off the board.

What went right -- Javon Hargrave game wrecker
