PHILADELPHIA (UKTN) — The Eagles will play the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship at Lincoln Financial Field at 3 p.m. Sunday with a Super Bowl berth on the line.
The Eagles dominated the New York Giants in the divisional round to advance, while the Niners defeated the Dallas Cowboys.
There are a number of matchups to watch in the NFC title game, but protecting quarterback Jalen Hurts from the Niners’ pass rush, particularly Nick Bosa, will be key. Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata will have their hands full with Bosa.
Dodge AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith can be prepared for big games.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Eagles will try to slow down an attack with versatile weapons in Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.
San Fran rookie quarterback Brock Purdy is 8-0 as a starter, but he has yet to defend as well as the Eagles.
