PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There were many things to like, one glaring thing to dislike, the loss of Carson Wentz, and not much to look forward to after the Eagles’ 43-35 victory over the Los Angeles Rams at the Coliseum on Sunday.
Quarterback Nick Foles’ nine yard completion to Nelson Agholor on a third-and-nine with 1:52 left to play and more time to kill in preserving the Eagles’ victory.
Defensive end Chris Long’s strip of Jared Goff with 8:26, which led to a fumble and Jake Elliott’s go-ahead 33-yard field and a 37-35 lead.
Defensive end Brandon Graham’s 25-yard TD return on the final play of the game.
