Big Game Atmosphere - Iggles Blitz
The 5-1 Eagles are in Arizona to take on the 5-1 Cardinals. Those are impressive records, but this is an October game. It’s too early for a big game, right? For some reason this game has the feel of a big game. Eagles fans are in Arizona in droves.

Cox Playing Key Role In Eagles Pass-Rush - Birds 24/7
Eight different Eagles have notched a sack this season, yet the column next to Fletcher Cox’s name shows a goose egg. Looking at numbers alone, it’d be easy to draw the conclusion that Cox is not doing much to affect opposing quarterbacks. But that assertion couldn’t be farther from the truth. "We joke with him that he's just as unlucky as anybody right now," said Connor Barwin, who leads the Eagles with six sacks. "He wins consistently probably more than anybody in the pass-rushing group up front. But pass-rushing and sacks is such an opportunistic stat. He's hit the quarterback a bunch, but the ball's just gotten off or he's been there first.

Bill Davis has Eagles' defense making strides - Inquirer
Before games with the Cleveland Browns in 2012, Emmanuel Acho would find Bill Davis on the field and pester him with questions. Both wanted to become defensive coordinators. Davis, who was then Cleveland's linebackers coach, had been a coordinator in San Francisco and Arizona and shared with Acho his goal of becoming one again. Acho, who was playing for Davis in Cleveland, had aspirations of becoming a defensive coach after his playing career. They discussed strategies, how to deploy personnel, and different schemes. Acho, now an Eagles linebacker with different plans for his next career, knew Davis was planning for a third opportunity.

Polk could see increased role for Eagles - Inquirer
Polk's role, however, could expand when the Eagles travel to Arizona to face the 5-1 Cardinals on Sunday. Sproles, who has a knee sprain, was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report and will likely be a game-time decision. If he can't play, Polk will be McCoy's backup and will likely be involved in the offense.

Acho brothers find themselves on opposing sides for the first time - Daily News
TOMORROW afternoon, Sonny and Christie Acho will occupy the same seats they always do when they attend Arizona Cardinals' home games, in the players' family section at University of Phoenix Stadium. They shouldn't prove difficult to spot. Just look for the only parents wearing midnight green and Cardinals red.

Fan-Demonium: Battle Of The Birds -
History has a strange way of repeating itself. Last year, the Cardinals and Eagles played each other. The Eagles were coming off their bye week and in the game prior to that had played a division rival. Both the Eagles and the Cardinals had winning records. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks had missed the previous couple of games due to injury. Does any of this sound familiar?

Patchwork O-line a big reason Eagles are 5-1 - CSN Philly
You know something is going well for you up front when you’ve used more offensive linemen than you’ve allowed sacks. Six games into the season, the Eagles have used 11 different offensive linemen and allowed seven sacks. You would think an offensive line this unsettled would mean open season on the quarterback. But it hasn’t. And that’s one of the big reasons the Eagles are 5-1.

Five reasons why the Cowboys' success won't last. |
The Dallas Cowboys have been playing some outstanding football. The question is, when we look back at the Cowboys' 2014 NFL season, will the early record we have now reflect the season? With the brand of football Dallas is playing right now, it could all fall apart.

The Quarterback Contract Question " Grantland
Welcome to the world of NFL signal-callers, where signing bonuses, cap hits and guaranteed money mean almost as much to your future as how you play on the field.

Is Jay Cutler Elite? - SB Nation
Brian Urlacher should have never opened his big stupid mouth, no offense.
