A Philadelphia Eagles win, coupled with a New York Giants loss, would bring the Eagles back to within two games of the NFC East lead. That would be followed by a Week 11 showdown with the Giants that could potentially bring the Eagles to within only one game of the lead.
Would that be enough to start renewing playoff hope for Eagles fans?
The Eagles have an anti-climatic game this week against the Arizona Cardinals. It was supposed to be the return of quarterback Kevin Kolb and these two teams were anticipated to be playoff contenders.

It turns out that the Cardinals had a quarterback already on the roster...
TEMPE, Ariz. Media outlets called it a blockbuster trade. Cynics are now calling it a block-bust trade. Time will tell which label is closer to the truth, but the early returns on the offseason deal that sent quarterback Kevin Kolb from Philadelphia to Arizona for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick are far less than what the Eagles and Cardinals envisioned...
