The eagerly anticipated Week 13 NFC Championship Game rematch between the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles has been marked on many calendars since the schedule was released in May. Many feel robbed of what could have been an epic showdown between two powerhouses in January. Instead, the 49ers hobbled through four quarters of football after quarterback Brock Purdy suffered an early injury.

The stage is set for a compelling matchup. With the NFL's best record of 10-1, the Eagles have won five consecutive games and are coming off an exhilarating overtime win over the Buffalo Bills. On the other side, the 49ers have rebounded impressively from a three-game skid, securing three consecutive victories, including a Thanksgiving win over the division-rival Seattle Seahawks, and positioning themselves as the frontrunners for the second seed in the NFC playoff picture.

A win at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday would put the 49ers within striking distance of the Eagles in the playoff hierarchy and give them the coveted head-to-head tiebreaker.

San Francisco is currently listed as a 2.5-point favorite over Philadelphia, though this could change as the week progresses. The 49ers are coming off a Thursday night game, earning some much-needed rest before facing the defending NFC champions, giving them a slight advantage.

In their last three games, the 49ers' dominant defense has helped them secure victories with an average margin of 20.7 points. In contrast, the Eagles' margin of victory has been a more modest 4.8 points over the last four games.

Oddsmakers anticipate a close matchup between these two teams, promising an exciting experience for fans on both sides. There will be no shortage of media hype as the game quickly approaches.

49ers OL Jon Feliciano says Eagles DT Jalen Carter threatened him and his children with death during game

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
