Ah, the first weekend of the NFL season is finally in sight. After months of wondering if there would even be an NFL season—and after what felt like more than four weeks of a preseason—regular season football is back.
But this game should be on everybody's must-watch list.
It will be the first opportunity to see the "dream team" in a full-length regular season game. While you may think the Eagles will roll to an easy victory this week, you should think again.
St. Louis comes into this game more confident than they've been in years. They improved from 1-15 in 2009 to 7-9 a season ago, and with Sam Bradford under center, things look promising. Let's not forget that this Rams team finished the preseason with a perfect 4-0 record.
The next couple of slides include the matchups that will play a pivotal role in the game, how each team can win the game, and also a prediction on what the final score will be.
With that said, let's take a look at some of the key matchups in this game.
