Eagles vs. Cardinals Week 17 game preview and predictions

The Philadelphia Eagles’ largest margin of victory this season is 14 points. They did that twice.

Their average margin of victory is 7.1 points.

Wouldn’t it be nice if they made things look easy for once? A comfortable win where they bring their A-game and make it never look close?

On paper, at least, they have an opportunity to do just that as 12.5-point home favorites. This Arizona Cardinals are very bad and their fans aren’t shy to admit it.

Their defense is especially flawed. It’ll be troubling if the Eagles’ offense doesn’t have their way with that unit.

On the other side of the ball, it’s possible that Kyler Murray could be a nuisance. But he shouldn’t be able to outdo the Eagles’ scoring pace.

Blowing out Jonathan Gannon would be a great way to end 2023 and kick off a new year. It’s there for the taking.
