Everything you need to know about Philadelphia’s Week 15 matchup.
Oh, that’s right, the Philadelphia Eagles are playing a football game this week.
It’s easy to forget about that given all the rightful focus on Carson Wentz and his injury situation.
But today’s not about the Eagles’ long-term outlook. Rather, it’s about their Week 15 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football.
This game was supposed to be an epic rematch of last year’s battle between two NFC heavyweights. Instead, it’s a battle between one team that’s still among the NFC elite and another that’s clawing just to have a chance at the No. 6 seed.
The Eagles’ playoff hopes will be very much alive if reigning Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles can somehow find a way to help lead his team to victory. He’s shocked the world before. Does he have another magical run in him?
Maybe, but the reality is the Eagles’ chances aren’t looking so great. There’s good reason why they’re 13 point underdogs to the Rams. This game could easily be similar to how the Eagles got blown out by the Saints in New Orleans earlier this year.
We’ll see soon enough.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
