The mighty Philadelphia Eagles were sitting ducks, and yet the Rams let them soar out of the Coliseum with a 43-35 victory that could have been so much different.
The Rams need to check themselves after Goff lost the ball with a fumble that led to the winning 33-yard field goal by Jake Elliott on an Eagles drive extended by a leverage penalty that cost the Rams a precious two minutes on the clock.
Verizon is expanding its deal with the NFL so even people using other mobile carriers can watch games on the Yahoo Sports mobile app, the league announced Monday.

Her performance won her an award from the New York Film Critics Circle, but failed to land a Golden Globe acknowledgment. Jake Gyllenhaal: The actor gave a raw, honest performance as a double amputee and survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in “Stronger,” but he was also shut out of the nominations.
