San Francisco 49ers Form

San Francisco are riding a 12-game win streak into the NFC Championship Game.

The 49ers were forced to turn to their third-string rookie QB during this run, but it has not slowed them down.

Brock Purdy, taken last in the 2022 NFL Draft, has gone 7-0 since becoming the starter.

He was at the controls for a 35-7 blowout of Tampa Bay and then led San Francisco to a 21-13 win at division rivals Seattle.

The 49ers’ streak continued as they returned home to beat Washington 37-20 at home and then edged Las Vegas in overtime, 37-34, on the road.

San Francisco wrapped up the regular season with a 38-13 win against Arizona to finish with a 13-4 record.

That guaranteed them home field advantage for their next two playoff games and they were able to make it count.

The Niners trailed at half-time against Seattle on Super Wildcard Weekend, but came storming back to blow out the Seahawks, 41-23.

They then edged Dallas in a tough defensive battle in the Divisional Round, scoring 10 points in the fourth quarter to earn a 19-12 victory.

Philadelphia Eagles Form

Philadelphia are the number one seed in the NFC after finishing the regular season with a 14-3 record.

The Eagles rode a five-game win streak between late November and mid-December, but stumbled last in the season.

Jalen Hurts suffered a shoulder injury in the 25-20 win at Chicago and sat out the next two games.

In his absence they lost a big NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys, 40-34, and then fell to a 20-10 defeat at home to New Orleans.

Hurts did return for the regular season finale though, leading the Eagles to a 22-16 win against the New York Giants.

That victory clinched a first-round bye for Philadelphia and set up another meeting with the Giants in the Divisional Round.

This game was much different to the Week 18 meeting, as the Eagles dominated New York on their way to a 38-7 victory.
