A few more weeks remain in the 2023 NFL season, but it's hard not to believe this could be the game of the year.
First, the 49ers will have a chance to quench their thirst for revenge after a brutal NFC Championship Game loss last season when they needed Christian McCaffrey to fill in at quarterback after injuries to Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson. Second, they also can narrow the gap in the race for the NFC's No. 1 playoff seed with the Eagles continuously finding ways to get the job done.

It will be far from easy, considering the mounting chirping and piling up of injuries to the secondary -- not to mention the hostile Philly environment -- but if any team can overcome that, it might just be San Francisco.

Five players to watch in 49ers-Eagles Week 13
QB Brock Purdy, 49ers: The better-performing QB likely will win his team the game. It'll be Purdy's biggest test yet, and he'll need to pass it to further lift his standing in the league. His underlying numbers have been elite, but can he show it in a big way with the lights shining the brightest?
QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles: There's nothing really Hurts can't do, but if you're to nitpick, he's been quite turnover prone this season, with a career-high 10 interceptions and six total fumbles. The 49ers are second in the league in takeaways per game (1.9), so there's a path to success there if they can exploit it.
DE Chase Young, 49ers: Young's arrival definitely has boosted the 49ers' defensive line. He has 1.5 sacks through three games, but he's yet to fully announce himself in a big way despite his numerous pressures. From a 49ers perspective, this is the best week for Young to do it.
LB Haason Reddick, Eagles: Speaking of elite defensive lines, the Eagles definitely are in the mix. Reddick leads the team with 8.5 sacks, and always makes an impact play or two in every game, as he did last season with his injury-inducing hit on Purdy. You have to imagine that'll continue versus San Francisco unless the offense finds a way to maneuver around him.
WR Deebo Samuel, 49ers: Samuel on Monday said he doesn't regret the chirping he did last season toward Philly, specifically calling defensive back James Bradberry "trash." He'll need to back that up when the chance arrives Sunday. Otherwise, the trolls will be out for him.
