San Francisco 49ers VS. Philadelphia Eagles Free Pick

January 26, 2023
Brock Purdy and SF 49ers

As we go into the conference semifinals of the NFL playoffs for the 2022 season, there are only four teams remaining. The Eagles, who destroyed the Giants on Saturday, will play the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game after the 49ers defeated the Cowboys on Sunday night. Let’s take a peek at the thrilling conference championship schedule and predict the game which will take place between the 49ers and the Eagles. 

What to look out for 

This is how it ought to be. A trip to the magnificent Super Bowl is at stake as the two most dominating teams in the NFC square off. It will be a fresh start for both teams as the 49ers and Eagles haven’t played each other this year. With wide receivers DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown, tight end Dallas Goedert, and running back Miles Sanders, Philadelphia has the benefit of a more seasoned quarterback in Jalen Hurts. The right shoulder strain he sustained more than a month ago is still healing, however.

Brock Purdy, the Mr. Irrelevant of the 2022 draught, is the 49ers’ third starting quarterback, but San Francisco’s offence is still very effective even with a rookie quarterback thanks to Kyle Shanahan’s quarterback-friendly offence and the abundance of offensive playmakers on the team, including tight end George Kittle, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and running back Christian McCaffrey. Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers’ starting quarterback, has a remote chance of being fit for the NFC Championship Game as well, but Purdy has helped the team advance since the veteran was down in Week 13 with a fractured foot. However, Purdy hasn’t faced a defence like Philadelphia’s, which in the regular season limited opponents to a league-low 5.5 net yards per pass attempt as well as 3,057 passing yards.

The 49ers’ defence, on the other hand, recorded 20 interceptions to the Eagles’ 17, allowed 6.4 yards per pass attempt and 3.4 yards per carry, which happened to be the lowest in the league. This matchup may come down to experience, and although the 49ers have played in a Super Bowl more recently than the Eagles, Hurts’ relative experience to Purdy’s may be the deciding factor.

Why the Eagles will prevail

Only the 49ers’ roster even comes close to matching that of the Eagles, but Philadelphia still has an advantage when considering the whole 53-man roster. That is particularly clear in the trenches. Haason Reddick (17.5 sacks, including postseason) could be in for another huge day for the Eagles since they have the better pass block win rate and pass rush win rate. Mike McGlinchey, not Trent Williams, will be his opponent. No one disputes who is the superior quarterback in this battle, despite the fact that the 49ers offence has been excellent overall with Purdy at the helm. 

Why the 49ers will prevail

The specialties of the San Francisco attack will undermine the Eagles’ defence, which is often the better team. McCaffrey, Samuel, and Kittle account for a large portion of the 49ers’ receiving productivity, which will lessen the impact of the outstanding cornerback duo of James Bradberry and Darius Slay. Jordan Mailata, who this season was rated 56th out of 64 in pass block win rate, may be defeated by edge rusher Nick Bosa.
