Eagles Vs Cardinals News And Notes

The Eagles have always been a very good second half team under Andy Reid. In fact, since Reid became the coach, the team is 32-19-1 in November, the second best mark in the NFL over that time. If this team has any hopes of even sniffing the playoffs this season, they'll need to be even better this time around. At 3-5, the Eagles have to be considered a very long shot. The good news is that they resume their run at reaching .500 against one of the worst teams in the NFL this afternoon when the Cardinals visit the Linc today at 1pm.

Did you know?

The Eagles have gained 3.475 yards through 8 games. That's the 8th most in the NFL since 1940.

Familiar Faces

The Eagles and Cardinals made a pretty major trade this offseason when Philly sent QB Kevin Kolb to Arizona for pro bowl CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick. DRC played for the Cardinals for three seasons, pulling down 16 INTs over that time. Other than Kolb, the Cardinals also employ former Eagles Stewart Bradley and Sean Considine. Bradley signed 5 year, $25 million deal with Arizona in the offseason and has been a huge disappointment so far, failing to crack the starting lineup.

Matchup history

This is the 105th meeting between these former NFC East rivals. Their first meeting was November 10th 1935 when they were still the Chicago Cardinals. The Eagles are 54-55-5 against the Cardinals all time. Under Andy Reid, the Eagles are 5-4 against Arizona. Overall, Reid is 19-11 against NFC West teams.
