What you should know

At 3:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers will battle it out at Lincoln Financial Field for the NFC Championship and a ticket to the Super Bowl. Both teams averaged few points (the Eagles 19.5, San Francisco 16.42), so any points scored are well-deserved.

Philadelphia and the New York Giants both failed to advance to the third round of the playoffs, and it was Philadelphia that made the cut. Philadelphia won its contest against New York last week with a convincing 38-7 score. With Philadelphia leading 28 to nothing at halftime, the game was almost over. Their success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB Kenneth Gainwell, who rushed for a TD and 112 yards in 12 carries, and QB Jalen Hurts, who passed for two TDs and 154 yards in 24 attempts, in addition to a rushing for a TD and 34 yards . This marked the first time Gainwell had accumulated more than 100 rushing yards all year.

The Eagles defense was also present as they passed 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 people contributing.

By now, the Dallas Cowboys usually have all the answers at home, but last week the 49ers proved too difficult a challenge. San Francisco pulled off a solid 19-12 win over the Cowboys. San Francisco’s only offensive touchdown came from RB Christian McCaffrey.

Most of the roster’s points came from special teams, which contributed 13. K Robbie Gould delivered a perfect 4v4 game.

This next matchup is expected to be tight, with Philadelphia going out as the favorite by just 2.5 points. Those who play the odds have seen things go back and forth with Philadelphia being 9-8 against the spread.

A few defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Eagles go into the game with 70 sacks, which is the best in the NFL. As for the 49ers, they come into the matchup with the fewest yards per game allowed in the league at 300.6.
