Kickoff: 6 p.m. TV: Channel 4.
The line: Rams by 3.
Despite losing six of their past eight games, the Rams (6-8) still have a chance to win the AFC West. They are a game behind the Seahawks (8-7) in the NFC West and hold the tiebreaker.
Starting quarterback Marc Bulger returns tonight after missing the last two weeks with a bruised right shoulder. His replacements mustered a total of one offensive touchdown in consecutive losses to the Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals. The loss to Carolina hurt the Rams in the wild-card race.
The Eagles (13-1) clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs last week. But they lost wide receiver Terrell Owens for most, if not all, of the postseason with torn ankle ligaments.
This game represents a rematch of the NFC title game of the 2001 season, in which the Rams beat the Eagles 29-24. That was the first of three straight losses in the conference title game by the Eagles.
