Apparently, FOX is cognizant of this likely happening when the Rams of Los Angeles — previously of St. Louis – play the Eagles on Sunday (barring a wildfire postponement). FOX is doubling down on this game, which features two NFC contenders and fits in the semi-primetime slot of 4:25 p.m. EST. After not losing the game to a flex into the Sunday night slot, the network decided to pull out all the stops and will have a studio set out front of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to create a "College Game GameDay"-esque atmosphere.
The thing about all that pregame hoopla, though, is the game is in Los Angeles. Viewers probably expect to see, well, Los Angeles fans. But the visiting team has supporters who travel well, and the home team has a player who literally begged fans to show up. FOX sees the impending Eagles takeover coming a mile away.
