Before the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers' defense received a lot of attention and praise.
Then the game began, and the underappreciated Philadelphia Eagles defense had a terrible quarterback.
The Eagles beat the 49ers 31-7 on Sunday. Josh Johnson took his place until he was injured while attempting a pass. The Eagles defense dominated the Niners, who couldn't move the ball.
Purdy injured his ulnar collateral ligament, which is located on the inside of the elbow, and will have an MRI on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Eagle's offense gets a lot of attention. For the majority of the season, Philadelphia's defense, which has taken the NFL by storm, has been underappreciated.
This will change in the two weeks before the Super Bowl.
After defeating the 49ers, the Eagles advance to their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history.
The Eagles have previously competed in Super Bowls XV, XXXIX, and LII.
The Eagles won their first Super Bowl championship in their third appearance, thanks to head coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Nick Foles.
When the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots for the championship, Nick Siriani had just been hired as the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts
