The 49ers were NOT the team that most Eagles fans wanted to see emerge victorious from this matchup. According to one Bleeding Green Nation poll, at least.
But the Birds should not be afraid of this team. Brock Purdy has yet to lose as a starter but he hardly looks intimidating. And the Eagles are looking pretty good after doing what they did to the New York Giants on Saturday night.
Of course, the 49ers will pose a much bigger challenge than the G-Men did. San Francisco’s defense, led by former Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, is pretty nasty. They’re really going to make Jalen Hurts and company earn their points.
It should be a really good game!
Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals in a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game. The winner of that game will play either the Eagles or the 49ers in the Super Bowl.
