PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles will face a tough challenge on Sunday night at the Linc as they entertain the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals, coached by former Temple head man Bruce Arians, are 11-2 this season and alone in first place in the NFC West. They have won seven in a row and have already clinched an NFC playoff berth.
The Eagles are just 6-7, but that is good for a share of the lead in the NFC East.
This will be the fifth straight year that the Eagles and Arizona have met in the regular season. The Cardinals have won three of the last four matchups. Last year, it was the Cardinals taking care of the Eagles, 24-20, in Arizona as Carson Palmer threw a pair of long touchdown passes. The Eagles rolled up 521 yards of total offense in defeat in that one.
Not one Eagle is listed as out, doubtful or questionable on this week’s injury report, so Chip Kelly’s squad will be at full strength come Sunday night.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Kent Somers, Cardinals beat writer for AZCentral.com, about what makes the Cardinals such a good team.
