The Philadelphia Eagles are headed to the Super Bowl after taking down the San Francisco 49ers by a 31-7 score. Quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Eagles weren't always at the top of their game in the contest, but they dominated the 49ers from start to finish as San Francisco dealt with injuries at quarterback.

Offensive spotlight: Running back Christian McCaffrey did all he could to keep the 49ers' offense afloat amid injuries to quarterbacks Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson. He forced six missed tackles on 15 carries, recording 84 rushing yards — 57 of which came after contact — and a score.

Defensive spotlight: The efficiency with which the Eagles' pass rushers created pressure was simply remarkable. Interior defender Javon Hargrave won 50% of his 12 pass-rushing snaps en route to four pressures, and edge defender Haason Reddick turned 14 pass-rushing snaps into three pressures — including two sacks — and two other reps where he beat his blocker without generating pressure.

Rookie spotlight: This is usually a section dominated by 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, but an elbow injury limited him to just four passing attempts in the contest. Neither squad featured many other rookies in prominent roles, although 49ers fourth-round guard Spencer Burford did let up two pressures on just 12 pass-blocking snaps. He is set to earn the lowest grade of any player in the game.

Offensive line spotlight: Guard Isaac Seumalo and center Jason Kelce stayed clean in pass protection across 27 pass-blocking snaps. The Eagles' top-ranked offensive line gave up just four pressures in total, none of which were sacks.
