Although he came to the NBA in 2013 as an unknown, Giannis Antetokounmpo has become one of the stars of the league thanks to his great performances.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) – Carson Wentz caught Travis Fulgham with a 42-yard touchdown pass with 5:50 remaining to propel the Philadelphia Eagles to their first win of the season, a 25- 20 on Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Eagles (1-2-1) were playing without their top three receivers or second tight end Dallas Goeder, so the lesser-known Fulgham made the decisive play for Philadelphia.

The Eagles had fallen behind on the scoreboard after a mistake by Jalen Hurts. But Fulgham eluded cornerback Dontae Johnson and Wentz delivered a perfect pass to put Philadelphia up 18-14.

Then Nick Mullens threw an interception that Alex Singleton returned for a touchdown on the next offense for the 49ers (2-2), who suffered their second loss in as many home games.

Mullens lost three balls, including one on a play with Cre’Von LeBlanc that Malik Jackson recovered to enable the play that turned the scoreboard.

Mullens added 18 for 26 for 200 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by CJ Beathard after his third turnover.

Beathard led a touchdown play in the final minutes and another that reached the 33 line, but failed to complete the comeback.

Rookie Brandon Aiyuk had a 38-yard touchdown run and George Kittle had a career-high 15 catches for 183 yards and a touchdown to lead the Niners.

Wentz entered the game with the lowest passing rate and highest turnover rate in the NFL. But he ran for an 11-yard touchdon and threw for 193 yards and scored to put the Eagles in first place from the hapless NFC East with their first win of the season.
