2012 NFL Schedule: Eagles Go Back On The Road To Face Cardinals

The Eagles will face the Cardinals in Arizona in Week 3.


The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-0 in 2012, thanks to a pair of comeback wins. They will attempt to stay undefeated in Week 3 when they travel to Arizona to face the 2-0 Cardinals.

Arizona is coming off of a 20-18 upset win at New England, and the matchup with the Eagles will see Kevin Kolb face his former team for the first time. The Eagles traded Kolb to the Cardinals in 2011 for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick, which the Eagles used to acquire Vinny Curry and Brandon Boykin.

The Cardinals' defense should provide a tough test for the Eagles. Through two games, the Eagles are second in the NFL in passing yards per game, while the Cardinals currently have the 11th best pass defense. Arizona is 1-0 at home while the Eagles are 1-0 on the road.

Around the NFC East, The Cowboys will host the Buccaneers, the Redskins will host the Bengals and the Giants will go on the road to face the Panthers.
