The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Sunday night as the team is set to play the Arizona Cardinals in a Week 15 game. The Eagles are 6-7 after beating the Bills to earn their second straight win. Philadelphia is still currently tied for first in the NFC East. The Eagles don't actually need to win this game because they can clinch the division by merely beating the Washington Redskins and New York Giants in the final two weeks. Beating the Cardinals could potentially allow the Eagles to clinch as soon as Week 16, however.
Arizona comes to Philadelphia sporting an 11-2 record. They're clearly one of the best teams in the NFL season. Bruce Arians is getting the most out of his team. Carson Palmer is having an MVP caliber season. Infamous Eagles killer Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, and Michael Floyd make up a group of dangerous threats at wide receiver. Arizona's offense is hardly the only strength of their team. The Cardinals defense ranks as the fourth best unit in the league, according to Football Outsiders. The Eagles will really be tested in this game. Is this recent success sustainable? Can Sam Bradford continue to improve? Will Philadelphia's defense be able to hold up? The Eagles can prove whether they're for real or not in this game.
