What’s Going To Happen, Who’s Going to Win San Francisco 49ers vs Philadelphia Eagles NFC Championship

Don’t be stunned if these two open it up a wee bit.

The weather in Philadelphia is expected to be perfect for late January, and maybe even a little bit warm.

It’s not going to be a high-octane firefight, but both offenses should be able to work well enough to make this a back-and-forth battle. Sort of like the San Francisco win over Dallas, field goals will matter, but there’s going to be one big difference.

Field goals won’t win this. The Eagles won’t buckle in the red zone like Dallas did.

For all of the great things San Francisco does, it’s not all that great on either side of the ball inside the 20. It’s going to have to take a few more chances when there’s a scoring opportunity, and that’s just not its style.

It’ll be tight throughout, both defenses will have their moments, and the chances will be there to take over. Again, though, Philadelphia will be a wee bit better at coming away with seven when it gets the shot.
