The Cardinals and Eagles battle in a matchup of undefeated teams for Week 3 of the NFL season. Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick will look to have big days against defenses that have been shaky at times.
In a battle of two undefeated teams, the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles will meet in a Week 3 showdown. The Cardinals are riding high after knocking off the Patriots in Foxboro, while the Eagles held off the Ravens late last week.
For Arizona, this is a team that has simply found ways to win games lately. The play from quarterbacks John Skelton and Kevin Kolb has not been great, and the performances from Beanie Wells and Larry Fitzgerald have been somewhat underwhelming thus far. This all being said, the Cardinals' defense stepped up big time and the coaching staff has the franchise moving in the right direction.
Philadelphia has looked shaky at times this season, especially in their season opener with the lowly Browns, but Michael Vick has found a way to win the team's first two games. After struggling last year when expectations were so high, it appears the Eagles are on their way back to the top of the division.
Date, Start Time: Sept. 23, 4:05 p.m. ET / 1:05 p.m. local
TV Schedule: FOX
Odds: The Eagles opened as 5.5-point favorites.
