DThe San Francisco 49ers for quarterback surprise Brock Purdy play against the Philadelphia Eagles for entry into the Super Bowl. The NFL team won the playoffs 19:12 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday (local time) and ended all the dreams of the team around quarterback Dak Prescott, who had come with great ambitions. “We’re just happy that we won. It’s playoff football, it’s never easy,” Purdy told Fox.
Purdy extended his impressive streak to eight wins in eight NFL games and also remained nearly clean against the Cowboys. He didn’t get a touchdown pass, but didn’t miss a shot either and only made an obviously wrong decision in a few situations. Prescott, on the other hand, threw the ball twice at a 49ers player.
Purdy was selected last in the draft last spring and was therefore traditionally given the nickname “Mister Irrelevant”. But because quarterbacks Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo were injured in the 49ers, Purdy made his NFL debut as a surprise and has been a regular for the 49ers ever since. Like last year, the team is now in the final of the NFC. Twelve months ago there was a defeat against the eventual Super Bowl winner Los Angeles Rams.
“He’s playing at a high level,” teammate George Kittle said of his quarterback after the game against Dallas. “He gives our best players the ball,” Purdy “just does a great job.”
