Eagles' first practice at Angel Stadium before game vs. Los Angeles Rams

When it comes to the top pick, the secret was out well before the 2016 NFL Draft. Each team traded up to get their respective signal-caller.

Humbled by Wilson, who led the Seahawks to a 24-10 victory over the Eagles, snapping a nine-game streak, the Eagles need to take their frustration out on someone.

Goff and Wentz squaring off The magnitude of the matchup - with the Eagles now No. 2 and the Rams No. 3 in NFC playoff seeding - only heightens its intrigue. The Rams made it clear that Jared Goff was going to be the player they'd take first overall.

"We won't be on the field at the same time". "But, it'll be fun".

Coach McVay still hopes that L.A. fans will be able to outnumber the Philly fans on Sunday.

"It's not Jared versus Carson".

And it's true - the two quarterbacks won't be between the white lines at the same time. And as much as Los Angeles wants to make a statement about where they now stand in the NFC with a win over Philadelphia, McVay's squad could be playing with a little extra motivation since they actually have an opportunity to clinch a playoff berth, depending on a few factors.

"When I start seeing the same mistakes in ballgames that you kind of see during the week, we've just got to get back to the, not necessarily the grind, but we've got to get back to just focusing in on all our jobs and owning that". But ever since then, the two have kept in touch.

"It'll be fun to play against him (Wentz)", Goff told ESPN.com. A loss and they could wind up as the No. 4 seed in the NFC by the end of the weekend, behind the Rams, Minnesota and New Orleans. "He's been tremendous this year". I know that's always something he was always really good at and is continuing to get really good at.

Prince said Bannon vouched for MBZ during the conversation, calling him "a great guy". "That's all I recall of that conversation". The meeting apparently lasted less than 30 minutes, enough time for Prince to drink one beer.

Austin Rivers also scored 23, while DeAndre Jordan added 18 points with 21 rebounds. "I didn't expect to shoot the ball that bad". He shot a disappointing 35.5 percent, including 26 percent from 3-point range, in nine games before he was sidelined.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz answers questions from the media during a press conference at Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017.

"They're using him a lot the same way that Washington uses Kirk Cousins", Birds defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said Tuesday. He is an MVP candidate this year as the Eagles (10-2) can clinch the NFC East with a win.

"I haven't heard anything otherwise", McVay said. "I think they've had two games they've been held down in scoring, and everything else they've lit up the scoreboard".

So far, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said practice and meetings have unfolded smoothly. And a belief in his team-mates and I think that rubs off on guys. "Working that tightly with coach all the way back in the offseason".

"Russell Wilson, he made some plays", said Brandon Graham, who leads the Eagles with 8 ½ sacks. We just couldn't produce. But it doesn't make it any more pressure.

"It's been pretty seamless", Pederson said. "So those are all things that we've seen and still has a lot of room to grow". Pederson said Ertz could miss practices this week and still play Sunday. "Those are scary things to try to defend and it's why he's been playing at such a high level and why he's a great quarterback".

In October, moved by Agholor's performance, former National Football League receiver Chad Johnson addressed Eagles fans on Twitter, writing, "You ain't seen nothing yet, it gets real scary when confidence kicks in". We've got to make sure we attack them and don't let them get started.

The Eagles have one of the most passionate fanbases in the National Football League, so there should be plenty of them in Los Angeles on Sunday considering they travel extremely well and many Philadelphia transplants already live in L.A. Week 4's contest between the Chargers and Eagles at the StubHub Center earlier this year was a prime example of this. "But, at the same time it's definitely exciting". "I'm very happy for him and look forward to seeing him".
