*3 Star Play on Eagles* The Philadelphia Eagles looked bad in week one. They aren't that bad of a football team. The Eagles defense actually played great in week one. They held Washington to only 3.4 yards per play. Philadelphia's turnovers and missed 4th down conversions put the defense in a lot of bad spots.
Philadelphia had all sorts of trouble with the Washington pass rush. The Rams defensive line has a star in Donald, but the guys around him are no better than average. Johnson is expected back on the line this week for the Eagles and that is huge. Peters is also expected back on the offensive line. The Eagles are much healthier than they were last weekend.
The Rams played the Sunday night game against Dallas and were helped by several Dallas key mistakes. Los Angeles has a bit less time to prepare than the Eagles here, and they go east for a 1pm start.
The Rams offensive line ranked 31st out of 32 in the NFL last season according to Pro Football Focus. The Eagles are extremely strong on the defensive front, and I expect them to give the Rams line a lot of trouble. Jared Goff goes up against a stronger defensive front this week. Goff has struggled on the road and when he doesn't have time to throw.
This line is an overreaction to last week's results.
