Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. San Francisco 49ers

Why the Eagles can cover

Philadelphia has one of the best defenses in the league. Led by linebacker Haason Reddick and cornerback Darius Slay, the Eagles led the NFL in pass defense (179.8 yards per game) and ranked second in total defense (301.5) during the regular season. In the Divisional Round win over the Giants, the Eagles limited New York to just 109 passing yards, 227 total yards and seven points.

In addition, Philadelphia has a big-play receiver in A.J. Brown. Acquired from the Tennessee Titans in the offseason, Brown tied for third in the league in the regular season in touchdown receptions (11) and ranked fourth in receiving yards (1,496). His receiving yardage total broke Mike Quick’s Eagles single-season record of 1,409 set in 1983. See which team to pick here.

Why the 49ers can cover

San Francisco’s rushing attack has a strong matchup against Philadelphia’s run defense. The Eagles allowed 4.4 yards per carry to running backs during the regular season, which ranked 16th in the league. That bodes well for 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, who has 1,341 scrimmage yards (the most in the NFL) and 12 touchdowns (tied for the most) since becoming the starting running back 12 games ago.

In addition, San Francisco tight end George Kittle has been on a roll. Since Week 15, the pass-catching monster has seven receiving touchdowns. That’s two more receiving touchdowns than any other player in the league over that span, despite not having scored in either playoff game. See which team to pick here.
