Eagles Vs. Cardinals 2012: Game Preview, Kickoff Time, TV Schedule And More

The 2-0 Philadelphia Eagles travel to Glendale, Ariz. to take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals in an unexpectedly important Week 3 matchup at 4:05 p.m. ET on FOX.

Philadelphia is coming off of two straight weeks that saw the team overcome numerous turnovers and fourth-quarter deficits to earn victories. Last week, the Eagles took a late lead over the Baltimore Ravens, earning the 24-23 victory with 1:55 left to play on a Michael Vick plunge into the endzone. One week prior to that, the Eagles nearly fell to the Browns in Cleveland on four costly interceptions by Vick, but won 17-16 on a touchdown throw to Clay Harbor with 1:18 left to play.

Arizona has gone to 2-0 with their fair share of drama, as well. In Week 1, the Cardinals won a close contest with the Seattle Seahawks, 20-16. Last weekend, Arizona defeated the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium, 20-18, after a late missed field goal by New England's Stephen Gostkowski.

Offensively, Philadelphia has a significant edge over Arizona, with the Eagles gaining 222 more yards per game than the Cardinals over the past two weeks. Turnovers have been the primary issue for Philly, with Vick throwing six interceptions since the start of the season. If Arizona can keep that trend going, they will have a chance of bettering Philadelphia. If Philly can keep Vick's passes under control though, they will be a very difficult team to beat.
