Lions vs. 49ers live score, updates, highlights from 2024 NFC championship game

The 49ers and Lions are set to face off in the 2024 NFC championship game with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

San Francisco is no stranger to this stage, coming up short in the last two NFC championship games.

The 49ers lost to the Eagles in a bizarre fashion last season. Starting quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a serious elbow injury, but after his backup went down, he was forced back into the game despite not being physically able to throw a pass. The year prior, San Francisco fell to the eventual champion Rams on a game-winning field goal with under two minutes to play.

Detroit, on the other hand, is very unfamiliar with this stage. The Lions will be playing in their first NFC championship game since 1992, going over two decades without a single playoff win. The franchise has never been to a Super Bowl, last reaching the title game in 1957 when it was still the “NFL Championship.”

Purdy will hope to lead the 49ers back to the Super Bowl on Sunday, while Jared Goff will try and do the seemingly impossible and lead the Lions into the big game for the first time in the Super Bowl era.
