Philadelphia can make another push for home-field advantage with a win at the L.A. Coliseum, but here's the kicker: The Rams might still be fighting for their division, but taking down Philly could also put them in prime position for the No. 1 seed. Remember, the Vikings -- who currently hold the top spot -- have a tough road test in Carolina.
And we haven't even gotten to the Goff/Wentz 2016 draft story!
The story of the Eagles and Rams is, well, storied. As quickly as people forget tight playoff games of years past in the salary cap era, Philadelphia came a fingertip short of blocking a punt that would've potentially decleated "The Greatest Show on Turf" in the 2001 NFC Championship Game. How would that have affected the Tom Brady story? The real legacy of these franchises goes back to the growth of the league after World War II. The first title game ever played west of Wisconsin was the 1949 NFL Championship: Eagles vs. Rams in the L.A. Coliseum. Philadelphia rode the best back in football to a 14-0 win in the rain and serious mud.
That win gave the Eagles back-to-back titles. They won the championship again in 1960. No rings since. Getting home-field would be a step in that direction. That also holds true for the Vikings, who hope to hold Cam Newton in the pocket. Those are just two of the many enticing games on this week's slate. All picks below. Your takes?
