With the NFL set to release its entire 2023 regular-season schedule on Thursday, San Francisco 49ers fans were eager to find out when their favorite team would have a chance at redemption against the Philadelphia Eagles. WTOV in Ohio was the first to report that the two NFC Championship Game participants will clash on Sunday, December 3, a Week 13 matchup.

While the tweet from WTOV was eventually deleted, ESPN's Field Yates and the NFL later confirmed the report.

The 49ers and Eagles will play at Lincoln Financial Field. The game will air on FOX and have a 1:25 p.m. PT (4:25 p.m. ET) kickoff.

Schedule leaks are often hit-or-miss in their accuracy. However, the NFL confirming the report makes it official.

The 49ers entered last season's NFC Championship Game riding a 12-game win streak. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow early in the game. In addition, his backup, Josh Johnson, was knocked out of the matchup due to a concussion. That left San Francisco unable to throw the football, relying entirely on its run game.

The Eagles beat the handicapped 49ers 31-7, advancing to the Super Bowl. Many Niners players believe the outcome would have been different without the injury.

"I ain't going to keep going on about what could've happened and what would've happened, but yeah, it would've definitely been a different outcome," wide receiver Deebo Samuel recently told Complex. "... We lost because we played with 10 people."

While many question whether Purdy will be healthy enough to start Week 1, he is almost sure to be available before the December matchup with the Eagles.

The 49ers remain a talented roster with offensive weapons like Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle. On defense, the team added former Eagles defensive tackle Javon Hargrave to a lineup that already included Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Charvarius Ward, and others.

"From top to bottom, I feel like we the best team in the league," Samuel said.

The rematch with the Eagles will allow Samuel and the 49ers to prove that.

Brandon Aiyuk's status vs. Giants remains unclear as 49ers face short week

The San Francisco 49ers have three days to prepare for their next opponent. For players, that work will begin on Tuesday. They have Monday off. It will be a quick turnaround for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad, which will host the New York Giants on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium. On Sunday, Brandon Aiyuk was in and out of the lineup against the Los Angeles Rams. The wide receiver suffered a shoulder injury. For now, Shanahan doesn't sound too concerned. Of course, the head coach is awaiting more information on his star player. Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday morning, likely getting his typical day-after-a-game conference call out of the way earlier than usual so he can return to preparing a game plan for the Giants. The coach was asked about Aiyuk's

49ers demolish Giants in Week 3 victory: Key takeaways

It's hard to think of the New York Giants without some painful postseason memories. And that's why it's always so sweet to beat them soundly. And the San Francisco 49ers did just that on Thursday night, winning 30-12, and improving to 3-0 on the season. Although the score was relatively close at halftime, it wasn't as close statistically. And by the end of the game, it was even more lopsided—on the scoreboard and on the stat sheet. When you have more YAC (yards after the catch/contact) than the other team has total yards, you've thoroughly beaten your opponent. The Giants had 150 yards of total
