Game Preview – PHI at LAR

Are you ready for an upset?

More importantly, are the Eagles ready to pull off an upset?

This is going to be an incredible challenge. Nick Foles leads a banged up offense and Malcolm Jenkins leads a very banged up defense. Here is a full list of the inactives for tonight.

The good news is that the Eagles get Avonte Maddox back. I hope he plays FS in this game. Corey Graham has really struggled in that role.

I wrote my full preview for PE.com.

The run game will be the key tonight.

The Eagles offense must stay on the field. And Josh Adams needs to have a big game.

I can see the Eagles offense playing well enough to win. There still are some good pieces in place and we know Foles can have a great game when he’s at his peak.

Can the defense do their part?

Fletcher Cox and the DL can make some plays, but I’m just not sure the back seven is going to be able to cover and shut down the run on a consistent basis. For the Eagles to win, some guys are going to have to step up and play better than we’ve seen. The defense also needs some takeaways.

The Eagles aren’t likely to win this game, but that’s the beauty of the NFL. Anything can happen in a 3-hour setting. The Eagles need their best performance of 2018 and the Rams need to be sloppy.

Let’s see what happens.
