WEEK 15 PICKS

Bleacher Report's NFL Staff overwhelmingly picked the Rams to beat the defending champions.

"The Rams are averaging 37.7 points per game at home, while the Eagles have surrendered 77 points in their last two road games. The only way to beat the Rams is to establish the run to limit Aaron Donald and Co. and avoid explosive plays on defense, and Philadelphia failed to do either of those things in Dallas. In fact, only five teams have allowed more 20-yard gains this season than the Eagles, who haven't been able to recapture their 2017 mojo. There's also a chance they've lost hope, which could turn this into a laugher."

Score Prediction: Los Angeles 33, Philadelphia 17

L.A. CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES?

There's a chance Los Angeles could play host to both the NFC Championship and AFC Championship games come January.

Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk laid out how that could happen following the Los Angeles Chargers' win Thursday night in Kansas City.

"The Chargers are now two wins and a Chiefs loss away from clinching home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, and the Rams are three wins and a Saints loss (or two wins and two Saints losses, among other possibilities) away from clinching home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. If they had home-field advantage, both teams would be one win, in the divisional round of the playoffs, away from hosting the conference championship games."

With the Chargers clinching performance on Thursday, Los Angeles is sending two football teams to the playoffs for the first time since 1985, when the Raiders and Rams each won their division.

WHAT'S AT STAKE

ESPN's Nation Reporters made their picks and listed what's at stake for teams across the league for Week 15. Both the Rams and Eagles enter Sunday night with playoff implications.

Here's what's at stake and Sunday's win projection:

What's at stake: The NFC West champion Rams can clinch a first-round bye with a victory and a Bears loss. They need help from the Saints in order to secure NFC home-field advantage. The Eagles are among three NFC teams with 6-7 records who aren't yet out of contention for a wild-card spot. -- Seifert

FPI win projection: LAR, 78.3 percent. The Eagles are clinging to their playoff life. FPI gives the Eagles just an 18 percent chance to win without Wentz, and a loss would give Philadelphia only a 5 percent chance to make the playoffs.
