The Philadelphia Eagles will be up against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday (December 3rd) at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is going to be a cracker of a game with two of the top teams currently in the National Football League (NFL). Both teams have been nothing short of exceptional this year, and fans can expect a mouth-watering match.
The Philadelphia Eagles are currently 10-1 for the season going into this game. On the other hand, the San Francisco 49ers are also not far behind with their 8-3 record for the season. After the three defeats they faced in October, the 49ers have well and truly come roaring back.
Moreover, this fixture will be a repeat of the 2022 NFC (National Football Conference), which was played out between these two heavyweights. The Philadelphia Eagles got the better of the San Francisco 49ers last year, as they won 31-7. However, the Philadelphia Eagles could not manage to win the Super Bowl, with Patrick Mahomes and company leading the Kansas City Chiefs across the finish line.
Ahead of the highly talked-about game, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni has found a new way to motivate his players. Nick Sirianni made his players watch video clips of the 49ers players talking trash about them in order to get them riled up. However, NFL fans on social media have found this way to be cringe and feel it’s childish.
According to reports, Nick Sirianni tried to replicate Michael Jordan, who too showed clips of the opposition talking trash about them to his teammates to boost their energy levels. Many fans found it funny that Nick Sirianni feels he is on the same level as Michael Jordan! They roasted him for this and had some humorous responses.
Nick Sirianni is all praise for 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy and is wary of his threat
Nick Sirianni also praised San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy ahead of the clash. Sirianni did not shy away from praising Purdy and said he feels that the youngster is a winner. Sirianni added that Purdy has great athletic prowess and has the qualities you expect in a great quarterback.

“I think he’s a winner,” Sirianni said. “He’s a winner and just continues to win. I think you saw that all last year, as well as what he’s doing this year. I think he’s got good athleticism; I think he knows where to go with the football in a timely fashion; and I think he is accurate going there. Those are the things you want in a quarterback.”
However, Nick Sirianni has also added that this year’s match between the two teams will be totally different. He has said that the 2022 fixture is in the past, and this game will be between different versions of both sides. It is going to be the 2023 Philadelphia Eagles vs. the 2023 San Francisco 49ers.
