RUSHING OFFENSE: The Eagles’ ground game wasn’t nearly as dominant as it was against the Giants and Chargers, but it was efficient enough to keep the Cardinals off-balance and keep the ball away from them in the second half. LeGarrette Blount had 74 yards on 14 carries, including a 37-yard run in the third quarter.
PASSING OFFENSE: Carson Wentz’s third-down mastery continued Sunday. He completed 11 of 12 third-down passes for 225 yards, 9 first downs and 3 touchdowns. He had the first 4-TD game of his career. His offensive line did a tremendous job of giving him time to find his receivers down the field.
RUN DEFENSE: The Cardinals came in with the worst run game in the league and they left the same way. The injured Fletcher Cox wasn’t needed or missed. The Eagles held them to 2.2 yards per carry, and it took a 14-yard jet sweep by wide receiver J.J. Nelson to get the average that high.
PASS DEFENSE: A 21-0 first-quarter lead allowed the Eagles’ front four to pin their ears back and go after Carson Palmer. They sacked him only twice, but hurried him much of the day. Their secondary gave up just two 20-plus-yard pass plays, and one of those came on the Cards’ final play of the game.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Kenjon Barner had a 76-yard punt return that set up the Eagles’ second touchdown and also had a 15-yard return. Patrick Robinson blocked a 51-yard Phil Dawson field goal attempt at the end of the first half. The Cardinals’ average drive start on seven Jake Elliott kickoffs was the 21.3-yard line.
OVERALL: The Eagles continue to keep on rolling in the face of injuries. They lost right tackle Lane Johnson to a head injury in the first half, plugged in Halapoulivaati Vaitai and didn’t miss a beat. They converted 9 of 14 third-down opportunities. Carson Wentz was sacked just once. And their defense effectively neutralized one of the league’s most feared deep-ball throwers.
