Los Angeles wants to take over the NFC while the Eagles try to keep their season afloat.

Detroit’s season may be over but there is still a lot of meaningful football to be played around the NFL this season. This week on Sunday Night Football we get one of those important matchups as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Los Angeles Rams.

The Super Bowl champions will be in Los Angeles once again this season in a rematch of one of 2017’s greatest games. Nick Foles, who finished out the victory for Philadelphia last year, will get the start as regular starter Carson Wentz is set to miss the rest of the season with an injury. The Eagles will need Foles to step up this week as they will try to keep pace in the NFC wild card race.

On the other side, Jared Goff and the Rams offense will try to bounce back from a horrid day in Chicago last week. Los Angeles is still in great position to earn a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs but cannot afford major slip ups if they want to take over the top seed in the conference.

It’s a huge game with huge playoff implications midway through December. Come and watch the game with us below!
