Away: Detroit Lions

Detroit is charging into its second-ever NFC Championship appearance with a franchise-record-tying 12 regular-season wins and their first division title since 1993.

Quarterback Jared Goff aims for his third consecutive game with over 275 pass yards and a stellar 100+ rating. Known for his postseason prowess, Goff seeks his fifth straight playoff game with a touchdown pass and zero interceptions. In the regular season, he ranked second in pass yards (4,575) and fourth in touchdown passes (30).

Running back David Montgomery, with a career-high 13 rush touchdowns in the regular season, continues to showcase his prowess with 115 scrimmage yards and a rushing touchdown in the 2023 playoffs. Meanwhile, rookie sensation Jahmyr Gibbs, with 114 scrimmage yards and a rushing TD in the NFC-Divisional round, is on track to become the first rookie with a rushing TD in each of his first three playoff games since 2019.

Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, fresh off his first postseason touchdown, has the potential to become the first player with seven or more catches in each of his first three career playoff games since 2018. The rookie tight end Sam LaPorta stole the show with nine catches last week, setting a record for the most receptions by a rookie tight end in a playoff game.

Defensively, the Lions are anchored by Aidan Hutchinson, who aims for his third consecutive playoff game with a sack. Linebacker Alex Anzalone, with 5+ tackles in 17 of 18 games this season, and defensive backs Brian Branch, C.J. Gardner-Johnson, and Ifeatu Melifonwu, add depth and playmaking ability to a formidable Lions defense.

Home: San Francisco 49ers

With a record-breaking regular season under their belts, the San Francisco 49ers are gearing up for their third consecutive NFC Championship appearance and their fourth in the last five seasons.

Quarterback Brock Purdy has become the fifth QB ever to secure playoff victories in each of his first two seasons. Fresh off leading the NFL in passer rating (113.0) during the regular season, Purdy has a knack for finding the end zone, ranking third in touchdown passes (31) and fifth in passing yards (4,280).

After a stellar performance in the NFC Divisional round against Green Bay, including seven catches, 128 scrimmage yards, and two rushing touchdowns, running back Christian McCaffrey has the chance to etch his name in the record books. If he achieves 50+ scrimmage yards and a touchdown, he’ll join Hall of Famers Marcus Allen and Terrell Davis as the only players with such a feat in each of their first six career playoff games.

Down the field, Brandon Aiyuk has 1,342 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the regular season, and Deebo Samuel contributed 1,117 scrimmage yards and 12 touchdowns in the regular season.

Tight end George Kittle is a key cog in the 49ers’ offensive machine, with 81 receiving yards and a playoff touchdown last week. The 49ers made history by having a running back, two wide receivers, and a tight end each amass over 1,000 scrimmage yards in the regular season.

The defensive powerhouse led by Nick Bosa, Javon Hargrave, and Arik Armstead is ready to wreak havoc. Plus, keep an eye on Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and Charvarius Ward.
