Eagles @ Rams

Recommended Posts



These teams met at the Coliseum in Week 14 last season, with the Eagles winning a 43-35 thriller but losing Carson Wentz to a season-ending injury. Overall, the Rams have lost five in a row to Philly and 12 of the last 14 meetings. Their last win over the Eagles in Los Angeles came in Week 2, 1977.

The Rams offense was completely shut down by the Bears in Chicago last week, as they scored just six points -- prior to that, their season low was 23. They've now turned the ball over eight times in the last three games after turning it over just seven times in their first 10 games.

The Eagles suffered their second overtime loss of the season last week in Dallas, and are now 1-6-1 in their last eight overtime games. Since the 1998 season, their 4-12-1 record in overtime games is the worst in the league.

Todd Gurley had season lows in rushing attempts (11), rushing yards (28), total touches (14) and scrimmage yards (58) last week. Gurley has had back-to-back games with fewer than 11 rushes just once in his career -- Weeks 12 and 13 of his rookie season, when he had nine carries in each game.

Carson Wentz had three touchdown passes in the loss to Dallas -- the Eagles had been 8-0 in his career when throwing at least three TDs. Due to a back injury, he is not expected to play. Nick Foles, who came on in relief at the Coliseum last season and went 6-for-10 for 42 yards, would be in line to start.

The Eagles have allowed an average of 277.4 passing yards this season, which ranks 30th in the NFL. They'll face a Rams offense that has averaged 289.8 passing yards per game, which ranks fifth in the league.
