The San Francisco 49ers scored 21 unanswered points in the second half and beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday 24-23.
Frank Gore's 12-yard run capped the second-half comeback. It's the first time the team has won back to back road games in five years.
The 49ers are now 3-1 on the season and lead the NFC West.
Michael Vick threw a career-high 416 yards and ran for another 75, but that wasn't enough for a win.
The 49ers were able to victimize Philadelphia's porous defense throughout the second half and come back from a 23-3 deficit of the half.
Alex Smith threw for 291 yards and that included two touchdown passes in the third quarter. One 30 yarder connected to Joshua Morgan and another 9 yard throw was caught in the end zone by Vernon Davis. Frank Gore scored the third touchdown on a 12-yard run in the fourth quarter.
