In the NFC Championship, a pair of VFLs will suit up for the San Francisco 49ers in wide receiver Jauan Jennings and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley.
Moseley has been outstanding during the 49ers’ playoff run, leading the team in tackles with 17 – a number that also tied the second-highest total by any player in the playoffs. On the offensive side of the ball, Jennings has found his groove as a playmaker and has steadily gained targets from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Jennings may also see an increase in targets as it was his big game against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 18 that helped propel San Francisco into the playoffs. He had six catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns in that game. The 49ers travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday on FOX. SoFI Stadium is also the site of the Super Bowl.
From the AFC, rookie Trey Smith represents the Vols on the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line. The guard has started 19 games this season (17 in the regular season and two in the postseason) and played 1,335 total snaps, the highest of any player in the NFL.
Smith has only allowed one sack since Week 8 in one of the most high-powered offenses in the league, averaging just shy of 70 plays per game in that stretch.
Smith and the Chiefs welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to Arrowhead Stadium at 3 p.m. Sunday on CBS.
