Los Angeles Rams: 4 predictions for Week 15 against the Eagles
You can make a good and fair argument that the brilliance of Rams head coach Sean McVay can be a double-edged sword. In the playoff game last year against the Atlanta Falcons, McVay looked to have Los Angeles playing a different kind of football than he had earlier in the season. They lost that playoff game 26-13.
Fast forward to Week 14 against the Bears, and what you saw on that chilly night in Chicago was a different kind of football than fans have seen this season. If the plan was to limit the running game via Todd Gurley, then the plan was masterful. If the plan also included deploying a game plan that put the Rams in prime position to lose their second game, then same deal.
Don’t look for a repeat of that this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Even at 11-2, the Rams want to take advantage of the next three games, especially with two of them in the Coliseum. Also, the Eagles, Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, and the San Francisco 49ers at home are all winnable games. All are needed to keep pace with the New Orleans Saints.
McVay will also want to get his offense back on track after Week 14. The Rams looked as bad as they ever have with him as head coach. It’s a look he’ll want to get some distance from with so much still to gain in 2018.
