The LA Rams escaped with a narrow victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night by a score of 20-17. For most of the offseason leading up to week one, they were -2.5 underdogs, but that line flipped to Rams -1 before the opening kickoff.
While the Rams are trending in the right direction, the same can’t be said about Philadelphia. They blew a 17-point lead to the Washington Football Team in week one and aren’t looking much better coming into this Sunday’s matchup. With multiple starters on the offensive line still out, the Rams defense should feast to their heart’s desire. Washington had eight sacks on Carson Wentz, if that gives you an idea of what type of protection he’s getting right now.
