Los Angeles Rams: 4 predictions for Week 15 against the Eagles
Rams versus the Eagles has a different feel with the news that quarterback Carson Wentz is out for Week 15 and possibly the rest of the season. What looked to be something of a rematch from last season when Philadelphia won 43-35, the only similarities now is an injury to Wentz.
But that’s an Eagles issue.
The Los Angeles Rams want and need to find their way back to the style of football that got them to 11-2. Sloppy ugly games have not been part of the Sean McVay template over the last two seasons. That’s not to say LA needs to go out and post 50 plus on the Coliseum scoreboard, but a win by any fashion is just fine.
While the next three weeks will say a lot about the Rams headed to the postseason, Week 15 against a backup quarterback in Nick Foles will also. If the 11 wins mean anything, it’ll mean Los Angeles will win, and do so with an offense who simply outpaces an Eagles offense who has been less than ‘Super Bowl’ like.
Goff needs a good game, an efficient game. Additionally, seeing Gurley a feature in the game plan almost seems a forgone conclusion.
All that said, something says the Rams before the bye are different than the Rams after. They’ll win, but it may not look or feel quite the same.
Then again, a win is a win.
