How To Watch
The Eagles were made to work hard to maintain their unbeaten record in week 4. In an exciting game of football, the Commanders put up a tough fight, but it was Jake Elliott’s overtime field goal that secured the win for the Eagles. Throughout the game, D’Andre Swift continued to carve out a role as the top running back for the Eagles, with 14 carries resulting in 56 yards and a touchdown.
In week 4, the Rams won against the Colts in overtime with the help of rookie Puka Nacua’s first NFL touchdown. Running back Kyren Williams had an outstanding performance, carrying the ball 25 times and gaining 103 yards with two touchdowns. Cooper Kupp has returned to practice this week, although in a limited capacity. There is no official decision yet on his status for week 5, but the Rams are optimistic that he will be able to play against the Eagles.
With or without Kupp, the Rams have threats in Nacua and Williams. The game’s outcome may depend on which defense makes the most impactful plays. Our prediction is that Philadelphia will win in an exciting game.
