The Philadelphia Eagles knocked off the Los Angeles Rams, 30-23, as 13.5-point underdogs, making this the Eagles’ biggest upset win since 1985, when they beat the Redskins as 14.5-point underdogs.
This will be the sixth double-digit upset for the Eagles since the NFL switched to a 16-game schedule in 1978.

It was Randall Cunningham who pulled off that 1985 upset win over the Joe Theismann-quarterbacked Redskins. The Eagles ended up winning, 19-6, behind a late fourth-quarter touchdown from Cunningham.
