How the 49ers, Eagles made it to NFC Championship Game
The 49ers have had quite the turnaround at the quarterback position. Trey Lance was the starter heading into the season, but an injury forced Jimmy Garoppolo into the starting role. An injury that he picked up caused the 49ers to turn to rookie Brock Purdy. He has kept their winning ways going, and they have won their last 12 games. San Francisco is heading into this game coming off a 19-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Philadelphia ended the regular season with a 14-3 record. They won the NFC East and earned the coveted No. 1 seed granting him a first-round bye. The Eagles saw a familiar foe in the Divisional round as they welcomed the New York Giants to town. For the third time this season, they picked up a win against the Giants. A banged-up Jalen Hurts helped lead his team to a 38-7 win.
