Los Angeles Rams vs Philadelphia Eagles: Revisiting five Eagles to watch

Did the Eagles to watch turn the tide on Sunday?

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles paid a steep price for their victory against the Los Angeles Rams. They got outstanding performances from key players. Let’s take a look.....

Carson Wentz

Wentz was clearly got the better of Goff in their first matchup. After an early interception, Wentz settled down and threw for 4 TDs and nearly 300 yards. The Rams just didn’t have an answer for his precision passing. Unfortunately, the story now is how long he will be out with a torn ACL.

As a Rams fan who had to deal with the endless knee issues of Sam Bradford, my heart goes out to Eagles fans. The road ahead is tough.

Zach Ertz

I’ll take the egg on the face here. Ertz cleared the concussion protocol earlier in the week but did not dress for the game.

Alshon Jeffery

You just can’t guard against that. Sometimes a player of Jeffery’s caliber is just going to beat you with a play like this. And it pretty well sums up the afternoon that the Rams defense had.

Mychal Kendricks

I was a bit underwhelmed with the impact that Kendricks had. I was expecting an All-Pro performance and I can’t remember his name being called much during the game. Credit to the Rams OL for taking their best LB out of the equation - it had a lot to do with Todd Gurley’s success.

Rodney McLeod

McLeod recovered the game changing fumble that was caused by Chris Long, but other than that he wasn’t a huge factor in the game. When he was with the Rams I felt he was held afloat by good play around him, and I got that feeling again on Sunday.

At least he’s getting paid better for it now.
