Eagles Vs. Cardinals 2012: Undefeated And Overlooked In Arizona

The Arizona Cardinals are 3-0 for the first time since 1974, which makes them 3-0 for the first time since coming to Arizona. Now that's worth celebrating, at least for another week, in the desert.

Consider this, too: The Cardinals are in a good position to go to 4-0 and 5-0 with the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams coming up next. They've already beaten three solid teams. Here's an interesting number from Jess Root from Revenge of the Birds:

Seventy-five percent of teams that start off 3-0 make the playoffs. It is way too early to talk about that, but with two of the team's expected toughest games already out of the way and with wins in both, you have to like the chances this team has.

The Cardinals were just dominating over the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. They flew to the ball on defense like a pack of wolves. And they're playing with a chip on their shoulder on defense. See these player reactions:
