Arizona Cardinals  27

Philadelphia Eagles  6

The Arizona Cardinals improved their record to 3-0 for the first time since 1974.

Their victory in Week 3 over the Eagles was a convincing one.

The Cardinals' defense has looked great so far, making the NFC West a little more even scaled than expected.

Arizona Cardinals:

Larry Fitzgerald finally had a game that is "Fitz worthy."

He was targeted nine times and brought down all nine for 114 yards and a touchdown. A good sign for Fitzgerald owners.

Kevin Kolb wasn't overly impressive with only 222 yards passing and two touchdowns. Kolb managed to have no turnovers, which is a good sign for him and the Cardinals.

Beanie Wells finished with 8/18/0 before being taken out with a toe injury. Wells said he is "worried it may be turf toe." Once Wells went out Ryan Williams got a much bigger workload and finished with an impressive 6.4 yards per carry after gaining 83 yards on 13 carries.

If Wells misses any time Ryan Williams could prove to be a valuable pick-up.

Andre Roberts was targeted six time and finished with three catches for 55 yards.

 

Philadelphia Eagles:

Mike Vick had his worst game of the season throwing for only 217 yards and no touchdowns. Vick also rushed for 28 yards.

LeSean McCoy also had his least productive game of the season. This was mainly due to his lack of touches, on 13 carries he had 70 yards.

Damaris Johnson drew the start against the Cardinals with Maclin out and led the team in targets (11) and receptions (5/84).

DeSean Jackson saw plenty of targets himself (10) but was only able to come down with three of them. Finishing the game with three receptions for 43 yards.

Brent Celek finished the game with two receptions for 36 yards on six targets.
