The Eagles are the defending NFC champions, and they’re off to a perfect 4-0 start this season. The Rams are the defending Super Bowl champions, and they’re looking to get back on track after a slow start to the season.

The Eagles are led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, who has taken a big step forward in his development this season. Hurts has thrown for 1,121 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions in four games. He’s also been a good runner, with 208 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
The Eagles’ running game has been one of their strengths this season, as they’re averaging 141.3 yards per game on the ground. Miles Sanders has been the Eagles’ lead back, and he’s been one of the most consistent runners in the NFL this season.

Ram’s Running Game is Weak

Who’s Predicted to Win
In the end, this is a tough game to predict, as the Eagles and Rams are both very good teams. However, I think the Eagles have a slight edge in this matchup. All in all, the Eagles have a better offense than the Rams, and their defense is just as good. Therefore, I think the Eagles will be able to win this game by a score of 27-23.
