The San Francisco 49ers are advancing to the NFC Championship Game for the third time in four years. They will face the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles at a hostile Lincoln Financial Field. The Niners got there with a hard-fought 19-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, ending the season of a longtime rival. It's a moment worth savoring. "It is not easy, and it is not guaranteed," fullback Kyle Juszczyk said of reaching the NFC title game again. Of course, the 49ers can't enjoy the victory too much. There is work to be done. They'll try to shift focus quickly and prepare for what looks to be their most formidable foe since starting a 12-game win

The San Francisco 49ers are now 15-0 when they tie or win the turnover battle. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy's last interception came on January 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He's had moments since then that have come close to resulting in turnovers, but they remained misses by opposing defenses. In Purdy's two playoff games, including Sunday's 19-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys, the quarterback has failed to throw an interception or lose a fumble. He has taken care of the football, and head coach Kyle Shanahan credits that as one of the reasons why the 49ers' impressive 12-game win streak could continue. "Yes, he's been unbelievable with that," Shanahan said via a conference call on Monday. "I think that's the number one thing he's done, and to be

Brock Purdy is a rookie. He was a seventh-round draft pick. In fact, he was the last overall pick in the draft. I'm just reminding you of that in case you forgot. After all, watching the 23-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback on the field, it's easy to forget that he has started just six NFL games. One of those starts was this past weekend's playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks. Next, he'll face the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round. Purdy has taken the NFL by storm, becoming one of the more intriguing storylines of the season, given he was draft pick No. 262—labeled as "Mr. Irrelevant." It's tough to win in the NFL. Yes, Purdy has a talented supporting cast around him, but he is still a rookie. So what he is doing with his

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy could become the first rookie quarterback to start a Super Bowl. But first, he'll need to get past the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Purdy will become just the fifth rookie quarterback to start a conference championship game since 1970. The other four lost their starts. The other quarterbacks were Shaun King of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1999), Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers (2004), Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens (2008), and Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets (2009). Three of those quarterbacks were first-round picks. King was a second-round pick. Purdy's emergence since taking over for an injured
