Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers are the hottest team in the NFC right now. They’ve won 12 games in a row, including seven under rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, and look to be well on their way to their second Super Bowl of the Lynch/Shanahan administration. To do so, however, they’ll need to get through Howie Roseman and Nick Sirianni’s Eagles.
Philly has been absolutely dominant this season. Jalen Hurts would be the MVP if it wasn’t for his injury, AJ Brown was arguably the best trade acquisition in the NFL this offseason, and the Eagles defense had four players with 10+ sacks this season in Hasson Reddick, Javon Hargrave, Brandon Graham, and Josh Sweat. They’re arguably the most well-rounded team we’ve seen in years.
San Francisco’s Brocketship will, unfortunately, come to a screeching halt at Lincoln Financial this weekend. While these two teams are both currently on a crash course, I think the Eagles are simply the better team.
On-field experience and better quarterback play helps Philly get back to the Super Bowl for the third time since 2004.
Prediction: Eagles 24 – 49ers 20
Side: Eagles -2.5
Total: UNDER 46.5
