LOS ANGELES RAMS @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

We told you about the Eagles huh! Behind a beat up O-Line and injuries to most of their offensive  weapons the Eagles were upset (we called it though) by Washington, Carson Wentz being sacked 8 times was certainly a huge factor as to why and this week they welcome Aaron Donald to Philly!

The Eagles will hope to have LT Lane Johnson back to help stabilise the offensive line and the return of lead tailback Miles Sanders should keep the Rams D-Line honest and not just QB seeking missiles at least that’ll be what Carson Wentz is hoping after sustaining 14 hits last week, the Eagles cannot afford to lose him and with his injury history, protecting him should be priority 1, 2 & 3. The lone bright spot on offense last week was the play of Dallas Goedert who had over 100 yards and a TD from the TE position, Goedert is someone I expect to feature heavily this year as I expect the Eagles to move on from fellow TE, Zach Ertz as they’re really up against the cap in 2021. Miles Sanders could be the route to victory for the Eagles after the Rams gave up nearly 100 yards to Zeke Elliot on SNF.

For the Rams they’ll be looking to get their offense started in this one the same way they did against the Cowboys, scoring a TD on their opening drive of the game and looking impressive early. By establishing Malcolm Brown in the run game they were able to open up Sean McVay’s offense in the passing game, the O-Line was impressive in penetrating and sliding in the run game and to sell the play action pass game off of the outside zone run and as most of the Rams formations look similar with similar or the same personal it had the Cowboys at sixes and sevens initially an if they can pull off the same here and establish a lead it’ll put more pressure on Wentz to throw the ball and the longer that ball is in his hands the more time Aaron Donald and that defense has to get to him.

I can’t take the Eagles against anyone until I see the health of Lane Johnson and improvements made on that O-Line so I’ll take the Rams here to eek out the win by a FG.
