Eagles vs Rams is Game of the Week material in Week 14

The Philadelphia Eagles will look to rebound when they land in Hollywood to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14. The Eagles dropped a tough road loss to the Seahawks in the Sunday night game and ended their nine-game winning streak in the process. Philly opened as a 2.5-point road dog vs the Rams, who are coming off a convincing Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

SHARK BITES
  • The Eagles are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in December.
  • The Rams are 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games against the Eagles.
  • The total has gone under in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 games.

Well, that wasn’t how the Eagles planned it. After storming through the league at 11-1 SU and 9-3 ATS, Philadelphia was exploited in Seattle in Week 13 and showed their first sign of weakness. Strong quarterback play by an opposing team can flummox their defense as Russell Wilson carved up the Eagles secondary and kept drives alive to tire out Philly’s defensive front. The Eagles offense only mustered 10 points on the Seahawks and could not get any momentum in the ground game for their running backs. Philly’s No. 2-ranked rushing attack should be better suited to face the Rams defense, which has been susceptible to the run, ranking 27th in rushing yards allowed at 124 yards per game.

The Rams, meanwhile, took care of business against the Cardinals and will be chomping at the bit to face the Eagles and try to get the 1 seed in the NFC. Los Angeles’s offense was good but not great vs Arizona but it was the defense that stepped up, snagging two interceptions and six sacks against the division rival. Head coach Sean McVay will need to give a heavy dose of carries to Todd Gurley and try to buy Jared Goff time in the pocket if they want to escape with the victory at Memorial Coliseum, where they’re 4-2 SU and ATS this season.

The total opened at 51 in this NFC heavyweight showdown and the OVER could be crushed in this matchup. These are the top two offenses in the NFL in points per game and bettors will be salivating over a potential shootout in the City of Angels. The game may also settle the long-winded debate over which quarterback should’ve been selected first overall in the 2016 draft.
