Everything went right for Roethlisberger in Week 4 against the Buccaneers as he racked up 314 passing yards and 3 touchdowns. He actually has a chance to even better in Week 5 as he faces the Jaguars defense who keeps making opposing quarterbacks the play-of-the-week.
The whole Eagles offense was in a funk Week 4 against the 49ers. That stuff happens. What shouldn't be missed here is that Foles had been averaging 326 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2014 prior to the game. The Rams aren't playing nearly as well as originally predicted so a bounce-back performance from the Philadelphia gunslinger is very probable.
