FOX searching for Rams fans for Sunday's Eagles game

One of the more interesting storylines with the Eagles out in Los Angeles this week is the Rams' expectation that their own stadium will be flooded with Philadelphia fans on Sunday. They're even preparing for it in practice this week.

The Rams vs. Eagles contest is turning out to be one of the more exciting matchups of the season. FOX is so excited about the game not getting flexed to Sunday night that they're moving their entire studio crew outside to in front of the Coliseum to create a "College Gameday"-like atmosphere

Which brings up an interesting dilemma: What if it's all Eagles fans that show up for the show?

Turns out FOX may be worried about that as well, so they've put out a casting call for Rams fans for Sunday. Check out the listing on ProjectCasting.com:

We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be a part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!
Calling all LA Rams fans!

To audition for a role in the upcoming NFL Sunday pre-game show, check out the casting call breakdown below.

We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be a part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!

Notice it says "Calling all LA Rams fans," nothing about Eagles fans. Because they'll probably be there already.

LA is such a strange place.

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.
