Jalen Hurts and another star NFL quarterback will make history on Sunday (Jan. 29). The Eagles quarterback, as well as the 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, will make history when they hit the field in the NFC Championship Game.

The 23-year-old Purdy and the 24-year-old Hurts will be the first pair of starting quarterbacks in a conference championship game that are under the age of 25. They will also have the lowest combined age for a pair of starting quarterbacks that has appeared in a conference championship game.

Previously, Shuan King with the 1999 Buccaneers and Ben Roethlisberger with the 2004 Steelers were the youngest.
