After just four more quarterbacks, an NFC team will advance to the 2023 Super Bowl.
As for who it will be, well, that will be decided in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, January 29 between Nick Sirianni’s Philadelphia Eagles and Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The Eagles 15-3, led by the play of quarterback Jalen Hurts, wide receiver Devonta Smith and running back Kenneth Gainwell in their NFC 38-7 Division Round against the New York Giants, have the advantage ground.
Is the pitch important to the Eagles? Well, they’re 8-2 at home this year and 7-1 away; basically they can win anywhere.
As for their opponents, the 14-4 49ers, they don’t like to play on the road. Throughout the regular season, they went 5-3 when away from Levi’s Stadium.
Plus, they’ll start rookie phenom Brock Purdy, who will become just the fifth quarterback to start an NFC Championship Game in NFL history — all after being the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Will Purdy and the Niners build momentum to a huge win?
Or will Hurts and Co. easily oust the NFC West’s top team?
All we know is that the best way to find out is live.
And, if you want to attend, you’re in luck because last minute tickets are still available.

Philadelphia Eagles news
This won’t be the first time Jalen Hurts has faced Brock Purdy.
The two elite quarterbacks met in a November 2019 game between Hurts’ Oklahoma Sooners and Purdy’s Iowa State Cyclones.
Although Purdy had already dismantled the Sooners in the 2018 season, Hurts and his team prevailed and won in epic fashion, taking a narrow 42-41 win.
