Cardinals vs. Eagles 2014: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, channel and more

Learn more about the Eagles-Cardinals matchup that is set to take place Sunday in Glendale.

Rich Schultz

The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-1 and are coming off a much-needed bye week. In Week 8, the team will travel to Arizona to face the Cardinals in what has been one of the more talked about match-ups of the season. The Eagles and Cardinals have some bad blood dating back to last season and their rivalry goes all the way back to the 1930's.

The Eagles are chasing the Cowboys for the division lead and are facing a tough task. The Cardinals are also 5-1 and have the lead in the NFC West with a very talented defense and an emerging offense. The Eagles will need to channel their performance against the Giants to take home a win in a stadium where they have a long history of failures.

Fun Facts

  • The Eagles and Cardinals first matchup was at Wrigley Field in November 1935. The Cardinals originated in Chicago and moved to St. Louis in the 1960's before heading to Arizona in 1988. Due to the team's constant relocation, they were still in the NFC East until the league-wide realignment in 2001.
  • Eagles inside linebacker Emmanuel Acho's older brother Sam plays for the Cardinals. A 2011 fourth round pick, Sam Acho has collected 104 tackles, 12 sacks, three interceptions and an outstanding seven forced fumbles in four seasons. The Achos played together at Texas and Sam is just two years older than Emmanuel.
  • Current Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis worked for the Cardinals from 2007-2010. He was initially the linebackers coach but was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2009.
  • In last season's matchup, Nick Foles competed 61.8-percent of his passes for 237 passing yards and three passing touchdowns. He also rushed nine times for 22 rushing yards.
  • Against the Cardinals in 2013, LeSean McCoy rushed 19 times for 79 rushing yards and caught five passes for 36 receiving yards.
  • Linebacker Trent Cole sacked Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer twice and forced a fumble in the 2013 matchup.
  • LeSean McCoy (5,895) needs just 101 rushing yards to surpass Brian Westbrook (5,995) as the team's second all-time leading rusher.
  • Current Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles served the same role for the Eagles for much of the 2012 season. He was initially hired as the defensive backs coach but was promoted when Juan Castillo was fired mid-season.
  • Eagles West and Rockbar Inc. will be hosting a special Eagles pep rally on Saturday from 2 p.m. until close in Scottsdale. The event will feature giveaways, merchandise, drink specials, stuff for the family and hundreds of Eagles fans. BGN's own Mike Kaye and Dan Klausner will be in attendance, as will PhilaDelhia and other popular vloggers and special guests.
