Foles threw for 270 yards, while Wendell Smallwood found the end zone twice on the ground, getting the Eagles back to .500 at 7-7. They pulled within a game of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East, as the division leaders were shut out on the road against the Indianapolis Colts earlier Sunday. The Eagles also handed the Rams their first home loss of the season, as the NFC West Champions dropped to 11-3 on the year. The New Orleans Saints could pass them for the top seed in the NFC when they visit the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football.
Josh Adams also found the end zone for the Eagles, who got a couple field goals from Jake Elliott, including a 51-yarder in the first quarter. Philadelphia was out-gained by the Rams, 413-381, but they forced three turnovers from the home team, including a costly fumble on a punt return in the final minutes, sealing the Eagles' upset.
The Rams were coming off a Sunday Night Football loss to the Chicago Bears last week in Chicago, where they turned the ball over four times. They dropped consecutive games in the regular season for the first time with Sean McVay as head coach, struggling to stop teams without star quarterbacks. Mitch Trubisky threw three interceptions last week, while Foles had one and did find the end zone through the air. The Eagles' backup hadn't played since Week 2, but still found a way to pull off a victory.
The Eagles are tied with the Washington Redskins at 7-7 for second in the NFC East, as well as the Wild Card race, as they move on to host the red-hot Houston Texans. Meanwhile, the Rams need to bounce back when they visit the lowly Arizona Cardinals.
