You guys want a Sunday night game that’s filled with playoff implications and two teams that are playing some pretty good football? Don’t even worry. We’ve got you covered this week.
The Eagles need to keep winning to keep their postseason chances alive, currently sitting in a three-way tie for first place in the NFC East. But Arizona is ready to rise to the challenge, anxious to clinch its own division title in the West.
Here’s everything you need to know about the NFC matchup:
Date: Sunday, December 20, 2015
Time: 8:25 p.m. ET
Location: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
TV Channel: Nationally broadcast on NBC.
Line: Arizona -3.5 via OddsShark.com
Game Preview: On paper, this looks like a game the Arizona Cardinals should win.
The already-playoff bound squad has been consistent all season and Carson Palmer is still very much in the MVP discussion for directing an offense that has been nothing short of productive all year.
Meanwhile, the Eagles, despite their current win streak, have been inconsistent all year. It seems every time Philadelphia finds its collective footing, they follow up with a disappointing gridiron performance the next week.
But there is one way for the Eagles to get an advantage in this Week 15 tilt. Or, rather, one person. Fletcher Cox.
The defensive end has been dominant this season, the spark behind the Eagles defensive efforts, and if he can get into the backfield (maybe even hit Carson Palmer a bit), he can jumpstart Philadelphia.
If there’s been one offensive weakness for the Cards this season, it’s been the right side of their offensive line and with Cox likely lined up there, he could do some serious damage.
