Despite the fact that this spread is bigger than the AFC Championship game, it’s a matchup I find much harder to handicap for a few reasons off the top of my head and for some deeper ones I will get into further.
These teams schedules are really comparable and so are there are numbers. They are almost mirror images of each other, although on any specific metric the numbers and rankings can move around a little but both teams are almost identical.
In truth, the one obvious difference is at quarterback. Point often overlooked, Jalen Hurts in his third season, played his best year yet statistically, but not by much.
On the other hand there’s Brock Purdy who came in for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo, the third starter San Francisco has fielded this season.
Up to the present time, he isn’t playing like a third stringer at all. To this end, he’s stepped in and looked fantastic to the point where people are debating whether or not he could beat out Lance next season as their 1st string starter.
In essence, both teams boast an unreal running attack and passing attack that can hurt you in a thousand ways.
Mad Genius of Kyle Shanahan
Kyle Shanahan does not make mistakes, period. For one thing, he doesn’t blink at anything an opposing team and coaching staff throws at him.
When this offence is clicking it’s an absolute thing of beauty to watch with all of the pre snap motioning and finding mismatches, and the defense despite some weaknesses in the secondary is just as impressive.
So far, I give the edge in quarterback to Philly in this one, but, and this isn’t a knock on Sirianni who is a great coach in his own right, the edge in coaching absolutely goes to Shanahan.
So, this game is almost a wash personnel wise and it will be tough to find edges. But let’s take a crack anyway shall we?
San Francisco 49ers
A lot of talk has been thrown around about how the Eagles haven’t played anyone good this season, which is true, but the same could honestly be said about the 49ers.
I won’t detail each opponent or each result here, but they did lose to Denver in week three 11-10 which is rather depressing. By and large, the 49ers only beat four teams this season with a winning record including this weekend’s victory over the Cowboys.
Christian McCaffrey Calf Injury
On the negative side, according to reports, McCaffrey is dealing with a calf injury, the degree of which is unknown but he was limited at practice today. It will no doubt play a factor in how the public bets which will in turn cause more line movement.
I will continue to follow the reports this week, as should you.
The Eagles have indeed not played much in the way of stiff competition. They, much like their counterparts in this one, have only beaten three teams with a winning record.
As a result, they really do not have any weaknesses in their lineup though, and are incredibly fun to watch because of it.
Equally important, they don’t have any fancy names at running back but they can run the ball as well as anyone with Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell, and one thing the 9ers haven’t face yet this playoffs is a dual threat QB like Jalen Hurts.
Sirianni has created a culture in Philly that has this team hummin’, and I am very excited to see how he solves the problems Shanahan will present to him on Sunday.

Here’s the thing with the “haven’t played anyone good” narrative I take issue with. It doesn’t mean that either of these teams aren’t good.
On the positive side, there’s nothing they can do about how the league schedule makers decide who they’re going to play in the year, and it doesn’t mean they can’t beat great teams.
So far, the birds have very little weakness in their game, but one thing they aren’t great at is stopping the run which the 49ers are unbelievable at. They 9ers however aren’t great at stopping the pass which the Eagles can do very well.
All in all, this comes down to coaching and experience for me, and despite the Birds having home field advantage and some epic veteran players on defence, I cannot for the life of me picture Shanahan losing this game with Kittle, McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel in his arsenal.
I know that’s all a little oxy-moronic given the fact they are also starting a rookie quarterback, but Purdy’s passing numbers are as good as Hurts’ are in his 6 games and hasn’t shown us any reason to doubt him.
Additionally, it’s for that reason, I am riding with the 49ers money line. I think it’s the end of the road for the Eagles great year.
