NFL Week 3 Betting: Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals

Two of the unbeaten teams in the National Football League are getting together Sunday in the desert. The Philadelphia Eagles take on the Arizona Cardinals. Philadelphia has two wins; both coming by a single point. The Eagles sneaked out of Cleveland with a win in week one, and then beat the Ravens at home on Sunday. Arizona beat the Seattle Seahawks at home in week one, and then pulled off the biggest upset in week two; winning at the New England Patriots. Both teams lead their respective divisions; the NFC East and NFC West. Arizona is tied with San Francisco.

The Arizona Cardinals started the season with John Skelton at quarterback, but then have turned to Kevin Kolb. Arizona is one of the worst passing teams in the league with just 175 yards per game, but that has not effected them in the win/loss column. The Cardinals defense is allowing just over 320 yards per game. Offensively, Arizona would like to get their top receiver Larry Fitzgerald going. The receiver has yet to reach the end zone, and caught just five passes on the season.

The Philadelphia Eagles would like to see their offense take better care of the football. Through two games, quarterback Michael Vick has thrown eight interceptions. Despite that, the Eagles have two narrow victories. Running back LeSean McCoy has 191 rushing yards and a touchdown to guide the Philadelphia offense. The Eagles rank 2nd in passing yards with 331.5 per game, and 8th in rushing yards with just shy of 140 per game.

This will be an interesting game, with both teams attempting to take control of the NFC, along with San Francisco. The Cardinals are a surprise team, which is playing for the pride of the NFC West, which was terrible a season ago. Look for the Arizona defense to play well early, but then run into some endurance problems against a loaded Philadelphia offense.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles 28-17

Free Pick

Despite being on the road, we like the Philadelphia Eagles to cover the spread in this game. Look for Michael Vick to have one of his best games, and take good care of the football. Also, the Arizona offense will have a tough time moving the ball against the Eagles. We like the Eagles to win this game by nearly double digits.

Pick: Philadelphia Eagles -4
