    The Eagles are one win away from heading back to where this improbable winning streak began. 

    Sure, the sixth-seeded Eagles are in New Orleans tonight trying to stay focused on their divisional round game against the top-seeded Saints at the Superdome Sunday, but we now know where they'll play the NFC Championship Game. If they're able to take down the top-seeded Saints. 

    The Rams beat the Cowboys, 30-22, on Saturday night and will host the Eagles if the Birds win on Sunday. If the Saints win, the NFC Championship Game will be in New Orleans. The NFC Championship Game is at 3:05 p.m. next Sunday. 

    The Eagles beat the Rams 30-23 in LA back on Dec. 16 in Nick Foles' first start of this now-four-game winning streak. 

    In that game, the Eagles jumped out to a 30-13 lead late in the third quarter before letting the Rams back in. The Rams scored a touchdown and then a field goal to cut the lead to seven points and then Jake Elliott missed a 53-yard field goal. 

    On the last possession of that game, the Rams got down to the Eagles' 18 yard-line with four seconds thanks to Avonte Maddox's tackle of Todd Gurley in bounds that let the clock run. On the final play of the game, Jared Goff's final pass fell incomplete with Maddox in coverage. 

    In that game, Foles didn't play tremendously well, but he played well enough. He threw for 270 yards, no touchdowns and had one interception. Wendell Smallwood had the only two-touchdown game of his career and Josh Adams added another score on the ground. Alshon Jeffery had a monster game; he had eight catches for 160 yards. 

    The LA Coliseum is a place where the Eagles have had two interesting trips over the past two seasons. In 2017, they were there to win the NFC East title, but lost Carson Wentz to a torn ACL and LCL that ended his season and his MVP bid. Then this year, they got another big win there behind Foles that kept their season alive against all odds. 

    The Eagles need one more win so they can get back there next week to make some more memories.
