The Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles meet Sunday in week 2 NFL action at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Los Angeles Rams look for another victory after beating the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener. The Los Angeles Rams have lost four of their last six road games. Jared Goff is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 275 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. Goff has zero touchdown passes in four of his last nine games. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp have combined for 145 receiving yards on 10 catches while Tyler Higbee has three receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 153 yards per contest, and Malcolm Brown leads the way with 79 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 17 points and 380 yards per game. Jordan Fuller leads the Los Angeles Rams with eight tackles, Aaron Donald has one sack and Micah Kiser has two pass deflections.
The Philadelphia Eagles need a bounce back showing after losing their season opener to the Washington Football Team. The Philadelphia Eagles have won four of their last six home games. Carson Wentz is completing 57.1 percent of his passes for 270 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last six games. Dallas Goedert and Jalen Reagor have combined for 156 receiving yards and one touchdown while DeSean Jackson has two receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 57 yards per contest, and Boston Scott leads the way with 35 yards on nine carries. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 27 points and 239 yards per game. Nathan Gerry leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 10 tackles, Josh Sweat has one sack and Rodney McLeod has two pass deflections.
The Rams are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games, 13-3-1 against the spread in their last 17 vs. NFC and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 againsrt the spread in their last 5 home games, 1-7 against the spread in their last 8 games in September and 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games as a home favorite. The under is 19-7 in Eagles last 26 home games. The Rams are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The Los Angeles Rams showed flashes of being the team they were a couple seasons ago and while that's encouraging, I need to see more from them before jumping on the bandwagon. The Philadelphia Eagles had the most disappointing performance of week 1 after blowing a 17-point lead. With that said, I expect a motivated Eagles team to come out the gate and want to redeem themselves. The Eagles drop this game after how they played in their opener and this season could get away from them before it started. I'll back the Eagles at home here.
