Though their record indicates they’re a .500 team, the Cardinals have certainly looked a lot less than average in their first four games. Arizona’s two wins have both come in overtime against really bad teams: the 1-3 Colts and the 0-4 49ers. As a result, the Cardinals own the league’s 11th worst point differential.
That’s not to say this Cardinals game is guaranteed to be a walk in the park. When he’s at his best, Bruce Arians is one of the better coaches in the NFL. I don’t even need to remind you about how Larry Fitzgerald constantly kills the Eagles when these two teams play. Arizona’s defense presents a bigger challenge than the Eagles have faced in the past two weeks.
With that said, there’s reason to feel confident about the Eagles in this one. The Cardinals’ offensive line is a major weakness. Even without Fletcher Cox, who has been ruled out, Philadelphia should be able to generate pressure.
The Eagles are still looking for that first blowout win of the season. All good teams need to dominate their opponents at some point. Maybe that happens this Sunday.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
