The 49ers visit the Eagles for a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game, and the outcome could have serious implications for the playoffs this year, too.
The players and coaches may be downplaying it. But Sunday's contest between the 8-3 San Francisco 49ers and 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles is the biggest game of the year for both teams.
Heck, it might be the biggest game of the year in the NFL, period, unless you're counting Philly's Monday Night Football victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in what was a rematch of the Super Bowl last season.
The Niners visiting Philadelphia evokes memories of last January's NFC Championship game, though, and there's been no love lost between these two squads in the months since that San Francisco defeat went down.
Smack talk and grudge matches aside, Sunday's tilt could carry a lot of weight in determining the conference pecking order, which currently has the Eagles in the No. 1 seed but with the 49ers not far behind in the No. 2 spot and two games back in the loss column.
Whoever wins this bout would hold a valuable tiebreaker, should the two teams finish the regular season with an identical record.
On top of that, let's break down everything else you'll want to know about his high-profile matchup.
49ers injury report vs. Eagles, Week 13
The Niners have only three players on their injury report for Sunday:
- DL Arik Armstead (foot): Questionable
- RB Jordan Mason (hamstring): Questionable
- WR Ray-Ray McCloud (rib): Questionable
Armstead insisted he'll be playing, while Mason is only an ancillary for San Francisco's running back depth chart.
If McCloud is unable to go, though, it's likely rookie receiver Ronnie Bell gets work in as the return specialist.
