Eagles vs 49ers: QB Jalen Hurts vs QB Brock Purdy to be the youngest matchup in NFC Championship Game history
The NFC Championship Game this weekend is set to be one for the history books, as the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers will be the first in the conference to have two quarterbacks under the age of 25. Young guns Jalen Hurts and Brock Purdy, who are 24 and 23 years old respectively, will be the youngest matchup in the NFC Championship Game‘s history.
The combination of Hurts and Purdy‘s youth and the strength of their respective teams make this matchup even more exciting. The Eagles have the No. 1 offense in the NFC, while the 49ers boast the top defense. This is a game that has all the makings of an epic showdown.
The Eagles and 49ers have had wildly different paths to the NFC Championship Game, but both teams are playing at a high level. Hurts and Purdy are a combined 22–1 in the 23 games they have started this season, and the rest of their respective teams have been following suit.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke of the challenge that the Eagles pose, saying, “I think we got a pretty good team. We have a very talented team, also a team that plays well together. I know they do, they‘ve been as good as anyone since the beginning of this year and all the way to right now. If you looked at the beginning of the year, you thought Philly would be the last team right here and that‘s the way it‘s ended up, so we‘re going down there, hopefully, we‘ll have a good week of practice, and looking forward to the challenge.”
The Eagles and the 49ers have been two of the best teams in the NFC, and the matchup between Hurts and Purdy is sure to be a thrilling one. Both quarterbacks have been playing exceptionally well throughout the season, and this Sunday‘s game will be a true test of their skills. It will be a game that is sure to be remembered, no matter the outcome.
