Tonight's Eagles-Rams game pits the defending Super Bowl champions against their would-be successor in this year's big game.

The Los Angeles Rams are back on Sunday Night Football again tonight after losing last week to the Chicago Bears. The Rams were held to under 20 points for only the first time all season in the 15-6 loss.

The Philadelphia Eagles, meanwhile, are returning to backup QB Nick Foles following an injury to starting QB Carson Wentz. The Eagles are 6-7 and coming off a controversial overtime loss to the Cowboys last week that ended their two-game winning streak.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that the Rams have this game well in-hand. The computer model gives Los Angeles an 82.0 percent chance to win tonight's game.

A loss would put the Eagles' playoff hopes on life support, while a win would bring the Rams significantly closer to clinching a first-round bye.

The game will be played at 8:20 p.m. EST on NBC.
