1. Rely on Playmakers

This one relates to the last one as in for the Eagles to get back to their aggressive ways, they will need to rely on their play makers, which they are loaded with. Obviously, their biggest one in Zach Ertz is coming off a concussion, but should play. Other than Ertz, there are still plenty of big play threats.

Agholor, Ertz, Alshon Jeffery, and Jay Ajayi are just some of the guys on offense that the Eagles can lean on to make a big play. The Eagles can counter the Rams big play ability by using these guys to make a splash throughout the game.

While obviously Agholor had a big game last week, the Eagles top two offensive options were near silent on Sunday night. Jeffery had four catches for 61 yards, but they all came in the second half when the Eagles were in a hole. For Ertz, he only caught two catches for 21 yards before exiting the contest with a concussion, and Ajayi saw most of his action in the first half.

Philadelphia`s offense has been so hard to contain because it seems like no matter who a defense shuts down, there is always another option. If Jeffery is shut down, then they will go to Ertz, or if Ertz is shutdown they will look to Agholor or someone else.

Add in the abundance of different style running backs the Eagles have, and you can see why this offense is so good, which is something they must showcase on Sunday.

This Rams team is good, but the Eagles right now might be a tad better. The Eagles need to show off their talent and rely on their stars to lead to them to a big day on Sunday.
