The first conference championship of the year is finally upon us as the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers battle it out for the NFC’s George Halas Trophy.
It’s not a surprising match-up (the Eagles are this year’s top-seeded NFC team and the 49ers are second) but it’s nonetheless an exciting one. The main storyline is Niners’ Brock Purdy, the team’s third string quarterback and last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, who stepped in mid-season after the team lost both Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. Should Purdy lead the 49ers to victory today, he’ll be the first rookie quarterback to make it to the Super Bowl. But the Eagles are, of course, a juggernaut — as made clear in their 38-7 leveling of the Giants last weekend.

When Is the Eagles vs. 49ers Game? Date, Start Time
The Eagles vs. the 49ers NFC Championship game is happening today, Sunday, Jan. 29 at 3:00 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT.
Eagles vs. 49ers Odds, Prediction
Just like today’s AFC Championship between the Bengals and the Chiefs, the Eagles vs. the 49ers is likely to be a nail-biter. As of writing, Philadelphia is the slight favorite with a 2.5-point advantage, giving the 49ers a solid chance at an upset win and a place in Super Bowl LVII.
All eyes will be on the two teams’ quarterbacks: the Niners’ 23-year-old Brock Purdy and the Eagles’ 24-year-old Jalen Hurts. The QBs’ ages make this the first-ever conference championship starring two quarterbacks under 25 years old, but both have been playing far better than their ages would suggest. To make things more interesting, the two faced off once before in 2019 when Purdy was playing for Iowa State and Hurts was at Oklahoma. The Sooners won that game 42-41.
