49ers vs Eagles live stream: game preview

As the top team in the conference this season, the Eagles have home-field advantage in today's NFC Championship game, but they're up against a 49ers unit in frightening form. They've won 12 games in a row, and they could hardly be better-equipped to handle Philly's all-conquering offense and fearsome defense. It's just above freezing in Philadelphia but the heavens have opened over Lincoln Financial Field, and you can read on as we explain how to watch a 49ers vs Eagles live stream online from anywhere.

The Eagles proved that they're the real deal by beating the living daylights out of the Giants last weekend, but even their most devoted fans must recognize the threats that the 49ers pose. Yes, the Eagles scored the third-most points in the league in the regular season, but the 49ers led the NFL in total defense. In other words, whether QB Jalen Hurts opts to toss the rock or lean heavily on the ground game, San Fran's defense has the personnel to slow them down.  

Similarly, no defensive unit did anywhere near as effective a job at hitting the quarterback as the Eagles' this season, but that might not matter if Brock Purdy decides to hand the ball off to the likes of Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel instead. The rookie struggled throughout the 49ers' 19-12 victory over the Eagles last weekend, and Kyle Shanahan will surely instruct him to use his running backs as often as possible here today.

You could hardly hope for a more perfect matchup, so follow our guide on how to watch a 49ers vs Eagles live stream wherever you are.
