The Los Angeles Rams took care of the talented Dallas Cowboys in Week 1, a win that gives them a nice 1-0 start to the regular season as well serve as a proper introduction to the world to their gorgeous new SoFi Stadium, a multi-billion dollar complex located about 3 miles from LAX.
Week 1 was tough for the Philadelphia Eagles, their loss to the division rival Washington Football Team made even worse by the fact that earlier in the game they possessed a 17-0 lead, the two interceptions thrown by QB Carson Wentz not helping their momentum at all.
The two teams have played each other 42 times (including 3 postseason games), with the Eagles winning 22 of those games and the Rams winning 19 (also 1 tie).
Take a look at all of our predictions and odds for NFL Week 2.
Can Jared Goff be Successful Against Philly’s Secondary?
The Rams beat the Cowboys in Week 1, but that wasn’t because LA quarterback Jared Goff had an outstanding game – he actually completed 20-of-31 passes (64.5%) for 275 yards and no touchdowns but with one interception.
Now in Week 2, Goff has to face cornerback Darius Slay but without Brandin Cooks, so the question becomes can he get the job done with Alshon Jeffery, Desean Jackson, and J.J. Arceg-Whiteside, at least enough to take all the pressure off the Rams’ rushing attack carrying the team.
Rookie receiver Jalen Reagor had a decent catch for 55 yards in Week 1, but that was off four targets, a number he will have to improve on is he expects to be a part of the offense in Philadelphia.
Can Miles Sanders Have a Breakout Second Year?
Sanders, the former Penn State powerhouse, is poised to follow up his impressive rookie debut last season when he posted 179 carries for 818 yards and 3 touchdowns, plus 50 catches for 509 yards and 3 more touchdowns.
That’s 229 total touches for 1,327 yards from scrimmage – something that Sanders needs to improve upon in 2020 in order to help Wentz from out of the backfield, assuming a duo threat target will help the Eagles distract defenses with their game plans.
Sanders’ catch percentage is almost at 80, so he is obviously dependable, especially given that he is still battling the uncertainties that come with being new to the league, so it will be up to offensive coordinators Press Taylor and Jeff Stoutland to continue to successfully develop this talented young athlete.
Rams Key Player: (WR) Cooper Kupp
The receivers’ room in LA lost playmaker Brandin Cooks in a trade, so now the job of being the most focused-on target for Jared Goff goes to Cooper Kupp, a young receiver who is capable of posting 1,000+ yards of receptions if he can stay healthy.
That wasn’t the case in 2018 when Kupp missed half his games due to a torn ACL, but he started all sixteen games last season and posted a career-high number of receptions (94), yardage (1,161), and touchdowns (10).
Kupp will have to have a similarly effective season in 2020 in order for his team to see the postseason, something they failed to do last season much to the football world’s shock and disappointment.

Eagles Key Player: (TE) Zach Ertz
Arguably one of the top three tight ends in the league, Eagle Zach Ertz is one of the more reliable targets for QB Wentz to look for, last season catching 88 passes for 916 yards and 6 touchdowns, numbers only the elite at his position compile.
Ertz will have to have a similar 2020 if the Eagles want to take advantage of a somewhat ‘weak’ NFC East and help put an end to such embarrassing defeats as the one they just had in Week 1 to the Washington Football Team after blowing a 17 point lead.
To his credit, Ertz on his own had a decent Week 1 outing, his stats line reading 3 receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown, though chances are he would trade all those numbers if the team could have held onto that early lead against their divisional rivals.
