The biggest game on the NFL’s Week 14 schedule has the Philadelphia Eagles visiting the Los Angeles Rams. First place in the NFC playoff standings could be at stake in what’s become an extremely competitive race at the top. Fox’s broadcast will go out to nearly the entire country (other than the Seattle and Jacksonville markets for the Seahawks-Jaguars game) at 4:25 p.m. ET. But with the game in Los Angeles, in the backyard of Fox NFL Sunday, the pregame show is looking to get out of the studio for a College GameDay-like experience on site with Rams fans surrounding the set and showing support for the home team. In what seems like a very Hollywood-like approach to filling that backdrop behind the Fox NFL Sunday crew, a literal casting call for fans went out to come to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as Rams supporters and create a fun, enthusiastic environment for the pregame show (which broadcasts at 9 a.m. locally, it should be noted).
