Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field at 3 p.m. ET, the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers will grapple for the NFC championship and a ticket to the Super Bowl. Both teams have allowed few points on average (the Eagles 19.5, San Francisco 16.42), so any points scored will be well earned.
Philadelphia and the New York Giants couldn't both get into the third round of the playoffs, and it was Philadelphia who made the cut. Philadelphia took their contest against New York last week by a conclusive 38-7 score. With Philadelphia ahead 28 to nothing at the half, the game was all but over already. Their success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB Kenneth Gainwell, who rushed for one TD and 112 yards on 12 carries, and QB Jalen Hurts, who passed for two TDs and 154 yards on 24 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 34 yards. This was the first time Gainwell has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year.
The Eagles' defense was a presence as well, as it got past the Giants' offensive line to sack QB Daniel Jones five times for a total loss of 26 yards. It was a group effort with four guys contributing.
Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys typically have all the answers at home, but last week the 49ers proved too difficult a challenge. San Francisco was able to grind out a solid win over the Cowboys, winning 19-12. San Francisco's only offensive touchdown came from RB Christian McCaffrey.
Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 13. K Robbie Gould delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
