Jalen Hurts had one of Philadelphia’s four rushing touchdowns, and the Eagles rocketed to the Super Bowl, ejecting both San Francisco quarterbacks from the game with injuries in Sunday’s NFC championship game. defeated the 49ers 31-7.
The Eagles, who won the Super Bowl five years ago with another coach and quarterback, will try to do so again behind the formidable duo of Hearts and coach Nick Siriani. Philadelphia will face former Eagles manager Andy Reed’s Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night.
“Of course, this is what I dreamed of as a kid. “It’s so nice to be able to do this with so many men who love each other, are connected, and do everything for each other.”
Myles Sanders had two touchdowns, a hit by linebacker Herson Reddick, and forced 49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy out of the game with an elbow injury. Reddick also recovered a fumble by Purdy’s replacement, Josh Johnson. Josh Johnson later had a concussion.
This forced Purdy to return to the game, but his injury was clearly a contributing factor as the 49ers nearly gave up throwing the ball while trailing by multiple scores.
San Francisco’s bad luck at quarterback was too great to overcome when the team’s 12-game winning streak came to an end. The Niners had previously lost both Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo to season-ending injuries.
Philadelphia police greased traffic and lampposts, often proving to be a futile attempt to delay the revelry. But just three months after the Philadelphia Phillies advanced to the World Series, the championship-hungry city would welcome the beloved Byrds to the Super Bowl.
“Look at this city and the passion they have for this team. We are so grateful to these fans,” Siriani said. There’s no place like it.It’s a hard-working city, it’s a blue-collar city.I think that’s the type of team we have.”
The game collapsed in the waning minutes, with Philadelphia’s Kvon Wallace and San Francisco’s Trent Williams ejected for their roles in the brawl.
