St. Louis comes in to Sunday the more rested team, but Philly will almost certainly be the angrier group of the two, which should make for a truly interesting matchup.
When the St. Louis Rams return to work on Monday, it will be to specifically to prepare for next Sunday’s game at Lincoln Financial Field against the Philadelphia Eagles.
