The Arizona Cardinals lead the series with 59-55-1. The last match was during the Week 15 of the 2015-16 NFL Regular Season. Arizona won 40-17.
The Cardinals need to improve their offense. When you see their offense in contrast to other similar-tier teams, you find the basic loopholes. Or consequences of certain loopholes you can’t directly see. In other words, there is something missing. Have they had less practice than they need? We don’t think so. #25 in pass blocking and #24 in run blocking are not really inspiring ranks when facing a team like the Philadelphia Eagles.
Besides the urgent need to improve the offense, the team also needs to work around the lack of many important players due to injuries. In the game against the Eagles, Cardinal players Mike Iupati (starting left guard) is on reserve. D.J. Humphries (starting left tackle) is out. Further, Alex Boone is questionable in the final report, remaining to be a game-time decision.
As for the Philadelphia Eagles, Fletcher Cox (starting defensive tackle) and Ronald Darby (starting cornerback) are out. They weren’t on practice matches either. In fact, many fans are concerned about Cox, as he has not been able to play for a long time.
Wendell Smallwood, running back, is in the questionable region. If he doesn’t play, the game might go out of control from the Eagles. Against the Cardinals, keeping up their running game is really important to score a victory.
Although Philadelphia recently did a rushing of 407 yards in the last two games, the Cardinals are a bigger challenge. This is a team whose run defense is #5 nationally in NFL.
The Eagles will need new ways and schemes to move the ball. And if they succeed, the game will be easier to steer towards a victory. If they can’t, however, then things take a bad turn for the Eagles.
