Head to Head
Teams Last 10
Pick 1: Niners +2.5 (+100)
Yes, the Eagles dominated the Giants last week while the Niners scored only 19 points against the Cowboys. However, the Eagles more than likely won’t be able to replicate what made them so successful against the Giants against the 49ers defense.
Philadelphia earned their win via a relentless ground attack against the Giants. The Eagles gained 268 yards on 44 carries against the Giants and as a result, didn’t have to rely on Jalen Hurts and the passing attack.
San Francisco’s rushing defense allowed a league low 3.4 yards per carry this season to their opponents. That guarantees the Eagles will be slowed down in their most successful department in this matchup.
The Eagles have the homefield advantage but the Niners superior defense and advantage in the skill position department with Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel and George Kittle will carry them over the line and into the Super Bowl.
Pick 2: Jalen Hurts Over 46.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
Jalen Hurts used his legs to lift the Eagles to their win, scrambling nine times and scoring a rushing touchdown in the divisional round.
Expect more rushing from Hurts against the Niners as the Eagles will be in a tighter game where his freelancing will be needed. Hurts also cleared this number seven times this season as 47 rushing yards is a manageable ask for the dual threat quarterback.
Pick 3: Christian McCaffrey Over 58.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
Christian McCaffrey struggled against the Cowboys in the divisional round, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry on 10 rushing attempts. However, his averages indicate a better day should be coming in the NFC title game.
McCaffrey has rushed for 60 yards or more nine times this season, including a 119 yard day in the Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles defense is as solid as the Cowboys and a little bit better but McCaffrey should rise to the occasion and his averages to cash his yardage over on the ground.
49ers vs Eagles Preview
The Niners best defensive playmaker has a highly favorable matchup they hope he can exploit to put constant pressure on Jalen Hurts in the pocket. Nick Bosa leads the NFL in sacks and will be matched against Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata who ranked 56th out of 64 offensive linemen in pass block win rate this season. That’s a lopsided matchup that could leave the Eagles exposed in the trenches.
Expect the Niners to use a short yardage playbook on offense against the Eagles. Plays to McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel could minimize the impact of the Eagles playmaking secondary led by Darius Slay.
Both starting quarterbacks are light on experience ahead of the biggest games of their professional careers. Brock Purdy and Jalen Hurts will have a combined age of 47 years, 208 days on Sunday. Making the pair the youngest combined age between starting passers in a Conference Championship Game.
Hurts and Purdy played each other in the Big 12 in college. Purdy’s Iowa State nearly upset Hurts and the Oklahoma Sooners that day in a 42-41 classic. Purdy threw for five passing touchdowns that day, a number that is unlikely to be repeated in their first NFL meeting.
Robbie Gould provided a few clutch field goals for the Niners in the win over the Cowboys and provides a reliable veteran presence as a kicker. Gould is a perfect 29 for 29 in the postseason, making him one of the best playoff kickers of all-time.
The Eagles pass rush led the league in sacks and is the driving force of their stout defense. Philadelphia’s biggest strength is their ability to create pressure without sending a blitz. The Eagles had 50 sacks while sending four or fewer pass rushers this season and had four more of those against the Giants last week.
Despite the Eagles having a tough defense of their own, Sunday is a matchup of the top ranked Philly offense and the top ranked San Francisco defense. The Eagles ranked first in points per game and yards per game on offense while the Niners ranked first in points allowed and yards allowed in defense.
