Eagles fans travel so well, Rams have to game plan for it at home

Remember back in October when Philadelphia fans invaded Carson City, California for the Eagles' win over the Chargers

L.A. Rams head coach Sean McVay sure does and he may have his team ready for it if it happens again.

McVay said on Monday that he may have the Rams practice working with a silent count this week in preparation from the likely deluge of Eagles fans at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum this weekend, according to Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register.

Both the Chargers and Rams have struggled to fill their stadiums this season with recent relocations. Couple that with a Super Bowl-contending Eagles team with a fan base known to travel very well for road games and you have the recipe for a Philly fan takeover in sunny California.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz raved about his team's fans when they took over the StubHub Center in week 4.

“I am not surprised by our fans. Honestly, it was unbelievable. They travel so well for every game,” Wentz said. “It is so enjoyable and they make it so fun. It is starting to be the norm almost. Hats off to them. They bring it every game no matter where we are. We are really thankful for those guys.”

McVay is wise enough to have his team prepared for the extra noise in their home stadium. The Rams had to resort to such a move earlier in the season when they hosted Seattle, so they may be prepared for it this time around.

Eagles fan performs most beautiful version of 'Hallelujah' in tribute to Wentz

There have been some tremendous covers of Leonard Cohen's masterpiece, "Hallelujah," over the years.

Jeff Buckley's immediately comes to mind. The kids these days are into Pentatonix. Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton to cold open SNL was a work of art.

But one Philadelphia Eagles fan may have recorded the most beautiful, heart-wrenching version yet. It's a tribute to recently fallen hero of Philadelphia, Carson Wentz.

You may be suspect before you click and watch, but wait 'til you hear the lyrics. This refrain will absolutely sell you:

He goes through his reads, the 4th, the 5th

Does a spin, makes the lineman miss

He throws to Ertz, a touchdown - hallelujah!

Brings a tear to the eye. Miss you, Carson.

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts this week.

Nick Foles also happens to make his season debut as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback this week.

Large quantities of people love Stars Wars. Probably slightly less people love the Eagles. So, naturally, there should be some sort of mashup.

The Internet delivered today with a Star Wars: the Last QB hype video featuring none other than Nicky Foles as the Last Hope. Basically, it's a Nick Foles hype video set to some Star Wars clips and soundbites. Why not? Maybe come February they can edit it again to include Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as the Dark Side when the Eagles are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
