The Philadelphia Eagles will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Nick Sirianni's side have been irresistible this season and are among the favorites to win the Super Bowl.
According to DraftKings, the Eagles enter the Championship game as second favorites to win the Super Bowl. They are only behind the Kansas City Chiefs, who are tipped as the frontrunners to win the title.
Philadelphia currently has odds of +260 to go all the way and claim the Lombardi Trophy. Meanwhile, AFC giants Kansas City have a slim odds advantage at +250.
The Cincinnati Bengals are the third-biggest favorites to win the Super Bowl with odds of +260. Finally, the San Francisco 49ers are placed as the least favored to win the title, at +310.
However, since Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is struggling with an ankle injury, the Eagles could possibly pip them as favorites heading into the final stretch.
Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts is having the best season of his career and the team will be hoping that he now delivers on the big stage.
How have the Philadelphia Eagles fared so far?
The Philadelphia Eagles finished the regular season with a 14-3 record, the joint-best with the Chiefs. As Philadelphia topped the overall NFC standings, they received a first-round bye in the playoffs.
In their divisional round matchup, the Eagles trounced the New York Giants 38-7. Jalen Hurts threw for 154 yards and two touchdowns, but he also ran for 34 and a score on the ground after getting back to full fitness.
Philadelphia will now face one of their toughest tests yet when they welcome the San Francisco 49ers to the Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. The winner of this NFC Championship game will play in the Super Bowl.
The Eagles are scoring an average of 28.6 points per game and allowing 19.5. But there will be no margin for error against Kyle Shanahan's 49ers.
The Niners have impressed this season despite injuries to key players. Their third-string quarterback Brock Purdy has led the team to six consecutive wins in a row.
It will be interesting to see whether Philadelphia will change its approach against one of the most balanced sides in the NFL. Only time will tell.
