Why Eagles Can Cover
San Francisco had the top-ranked defense in the NFL during the regular season with an average of 300.6 yards allowed, but Philadelphia was right behind with 301.5 yards per game. In addition, the Eagles were first against the pass (179.8 yards allowed) and led the league with 70 sacks, falling two short of the single-season record set in 1984 by Chicago. They continued their dominance last weekend against the Giants, limiting them to 109 yards through the air and sacking Daniel Jones five times.
The Eagles have registered 39 sacks in their last seven games, more than a dozen teams have for the entire 2022 campaign. They are the first club to have four players reach double figures in a season since the stat became official in 1982. with defensive end Haason Reddick tied for second in the NFL with 16, while defensive tackles Javon Hargrave and Josh Sweat and Brandon Graham each finished with 11, all career highs.

Why the 49ers can cover
While 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has been one of the NFL’s biggest stories in the second half of the season, San Francisco running back Christian McCaffrey still holds the distinction as the 49ers’ most important player. Philadelphia only allowed the New York Giants to finish with 227 yards of total offense last week, but running back Saquon Barkley finished with 61 yards on just nine carries.
The Eagles also allowed opposing running backs a relatively high 86 receptions during the regular season, and McCaffrey has established himself as one of the best all-around backs in the league. Shanahan was cautious with McCaffrey in practice this week with a groin injury, but expects him to be in San Francisco’s backcourt when the 49ers play in their third NFC Championship game in four years.
