Eagles-49ers Game Features Youngest QBs In NFC Championship History

Written by Tony Ghaul

Jalen Hurts and Brock Purdy will be making history when the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers square off in the NFC Championship Game.

Hurts (24 years old) and Purdy (23 years old) will be the youngest QB matchup in NFC Championship Game history and the first conference championship game matchup in which both are under 25 years old.

Hurts and Purdy are both playing at a high level heading into the NFC Championship Game, as the two quarterbacks are a combined 22-1 in the 23 games they’ve started this year.

The Eagles and 49ers were the two best teams in the NFC all year, although both have taken different paths to the conference title game. Sunday’s matchup between Hurts and Purdy will be one to remember.
