Jalen Hurts completed 15-of-25 passes for 121 yards in the Eagles’ 31-7, NFC Championship Game win over the 49ers, adding 11 carries for 39 additional yards and a touchdown.
Hurts struggled as a thrower against the 49ers’ alleged elite defense, especially deep, where he missed a number of wide-open pass catchers.
It just didn’t matter as the Eagles ground game ran at seeming will..
San Francisco couldn’t punch back thanks to injuries to both Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson.
The best news for Eagles fans is that a quarterback who still isn’t fully recovered from his shoulder injury now has two weeks to heal up for Super Bowl LVII against either the Chiefs or Eagles.
