San Francisco 49ers fans are expected to have a surprisingly large presence when visting the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13.

Two NFC heavyweights will go to war on Sunday as the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers face off. The Eagles will once again have home-field advantage over Kyle Shanahan's squad, just like they did in the infamous conference championship game these two sides played in January.

However, it turns out the 49ers might have a good portion of Lincoln Financial Field on their side in Week 13.

Ticket provider Vivid Seats is projecting San Francisco's fans to make up 28% of the crowd on Sunday. That's an increase from the 19% this contingent held during the NFC Championship, showing how seriously those from the Bay Area are taking this matchup.

This is a shock to say the least. Levi's Stadium and the Linc are separated by nearly 3,000 miles (when driving), so this is quite the detour for anyone coming from the San Francisco area. And while this game could have some big impacts on the playoff race, there's still five weeks after this, so it's not like this will decide anything right now.

It's also surprising, though, that enough tickets from Eagles fans would be up for grabs like this. Maybe people are simply happy to cash in on the hype of this contest, with average seats going for $435, without minding who's actually buying them.

That being said, the Philly faithful isn't going to let one quarter of the stadium make a difference. Eagles fans are in a class of their own, especially when it comes to voicing support (or disapproval). Those in attendance at Lincoln Financial Field will make sure to drown out whatever noise the still-small 49ers contingent musters up on Sunday.
