Home field advantage at Citizens Bank Park is real in Philadelphia and was apart of the Phillies advanced to the National League Division Series.  On Wednesday night the Phillies eliminated the Miami Marlins in two games.  In fact, with help from the home crowd, the Phillies are 5-1 in clinching games at Citizens Bank Park.  Starting Pitching Aces Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola were outstanding against the pesky Marlins offense and The Locker Room with Billy Schweim will have all the analysis of the Phillies versus Atlanta Braves series this weekend.

The Eagles know how important the home crowd is when they improved to 4-0 this season by defeating the Washington Commanders 34-31 in Overtime.  The Birds will now Fly west to face the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday.  Jalen Hurts finally had a breakout game throwing the ball for 319 yards and two passing touchdowns along with a Quarterback Rating of 112.3.  The Eagles defensive secondary will have their work cut out for them against a Rams team that has the number two passing offense in the NFL this season.  The Eagles will have to tighten up their pass defense if they want to win on Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
