Injuries have made life hard on the Eagles throughout the season. It looks like that is going to continue to be the story for them down the stretch. Losing running back Corey Clement to an injury last week was bad enough. Now it appears that they may lose quarterback Carson Wentz for the season as well.
His status for this week has not been made official yet, but he is not expected to play.
That means Super Bowl hero Nick Foles will get the start. But in the two starts, he had earlier this season, he and the Eagles offence were unimpressive.
Jared Goff has been impressive for most of this season. But he was anything but impressive last week against the Chicago Bears. He will likely come out looking for a little redemption against the Eagles. With Philly’s pass defence among the worst in the NFL, he should be able to get it.
Spread: Rams by 10.5
The Rams have a shot to lock up a bye in the first round of the playoffs with a win and a Bears loss. Look for them to make sure they do their part and not pull guys until the game is well in hand in the fourth. They will cover the spread.
The Rams will score a lot, but with all the injuries and Carson Wentz potentially not playing, the Eagles may not hold up their end. Take the under.
Money line: Eagles +420.00; Rams -588.24
It would be an upset of unbelievable proportions if the Eagles were to win this game. Take the Rams to win without hesitation.
