Why the Eagles can cover
Philadelphia has the best passing rush in the league. The Eagles led the NFL in sacks during the regular season with 70, 15 more than the next best team (Kansas City). Philadelphia also had four players — Haason Reddick (16 sacks), Javon Hargrave, Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat (all with 11) — with double-digit sacks.
Also, the Eagles were nearly unbeatable with Jalen Hurts at quarterback. Philadelphia is 15-1 in games pitched by the dual-threat quarterback this season and 0-2 in games pitched by anyone else. The Eagles haven’t lost a game started by Hurts since falling to Washington in Week 10. Find out which team to choose here.
Why the 49ers can cover
San Francisco has arguably the best defense in the NFL. The 49ers led the league during the regular season in both scoring defense (16.3 points per game) and total defense (300.6 yards per game). They also tied for the NFL lead in steals (20) and tied for second in takeouts (30). In Sunday’s Divisional Round victory over Dallas, San Francisco limited the Cowboys to 12 points and 282 yards and had two interceptions from quarterback Dak Prescott.
This defense is anchored by bag artist Nick Bosa. A relentless, out-and-out forward, Bosa led the league in sacks (18.5) and quarterback hits (48) in the regular season. He also tied for the NFL lead in pressures (90). See which team to choose here.
