Game Overview ::

By Mike johnson >>
  • The machine that is the Eagles offense continues to roll, scoring 28 points in the remnants of a hurricane against a very good defense last week.
  • The blitz-heavy tendencies of the Cardinals will leave them exposed in one-on-one situations against the playmakers of the Eagles.
  • The Cardinals offense is basically operating at a level of “organized dysfunction” this season.
  • The Eagles defense is for real and has allowed only 28 first-half points in four games this season.
  • This is the game with the highest scoring expectations on the slate, with a very high floor and an unknown ceiling

How Philidelphia Will Try To Win ::

The Eagles appear to be a team that will beat their opponent in whatever way the game situation calls for:

  • In Week 1, the Eagles had four rushing touchdowns and dominated the Lions (who are now ranked dead last in run defense) for most of the game before a late Detroit comeback made the score look closer than it was.
  • In Weeks 2 and 3, the Eagles threw the ball all over the weak pass defenses of the Vikings and Commanders.
  • In Week 4, the Eagles once again leaned on their running game to the tune of four touchdowns in game conditions that made throwing the ball very difficult and they did so against a Jaguars defense that was previously ranked as one of the top run defenses in the league.

If we are looking for context clues for how the Eagles will try to attack, it appears that they are balanced and talented enough to pick their spots and attack the weaknesses or tendencies of their opponents. This week’s game is in a dome in Arizona, so there will be no weather issues here. They are also facing a Cardinals team that blitzes at the highest rate in the league, has Football Outsiders’ 28th ranked pass defense by DVOA, and is ranked 32nd and 30th, respectively, in coverage grade and pass rush grade by PFF. These signs all point to a high likelihood of an aggressive and pass-heavy game plan for the Eagles, as they will look to isolate and exploit the talents of their elite receiving corps against man coverage on the back end when the Cardinals bring their blitzes. It is also worth noting that the Eagles offensive line is PFF’s #1 graded pass blocking unit, making it unlikely that the Cardinals pressures get home very often and increasing the chances of big plays down the field early and often.
