The 11-2 Los Angeles Rams come into tonight’s game fresh off a stinging loss to the Chicago Bears last week. Despite the loss the Rams are still tied for the best record in the NFL and still in the hunt for the number one playoff seed in the NFC. The Rams are an offensive juggernaut, featuring the 3rd ranked offense in the NFL in both yards and points. This Rams team has scored at least 29 points in all but two games this year, and they have yet to lose at home, making it imperative for any opponent to be capable of scoring in bunches.
The 6-7 Philadelphia Eagles are one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL this year. The defending Super Bowl champions were expected to contend for a second Super Bowl title this year, but instead find themselves desperately trying to remain in contention just to make the playoffs. A long list of players landing on injured reserve has not helped the Eagles cause, and now star quarterback Carson Wentz is out for this game and probably the season, increasing the level of difficulty for this team to just short of impossible. The Eagles have been mediocre on both sides of the ball this season and it would be a minor miracle for them to go into the Rams house and steal a win. Nonetheless, any given Sunday, that’s why they play the games, insert your favorite anything is possible football cliche here.
It’s the Rams and the Eagles in a clash of NFC teams with major playoff implications on Sunday Night Football.
Enjoy the game everybody.
