A huge matchup with playoff implications takes place on Sunday Night Football as the Cardinals and Eagles go at it.
Arizona looks to fend off the Packers for the #2 seed and somehow catch the undefeated Panthers for that #1 seed.
As for the Eagles, they sit in that 3 way mess of a first place tie in the NFC East with Washington and New York.
The Cardinals and Carson Palmer have taken the NFC by storm. While there’s literally nothing they can do about the Panthers, they’ve been extremely impressive while grabbing the #2 spot.
Arizona showed some grit and fight as they struggled with the Vikings on Thursday Night Football, but used a late field goal and forced turnover to grab a 23-20 win.
The Cardinals can officially clinch the division with a win here against Philadelphia. That shouldn’t be an issue as this team is clicking away from home. Arizona is 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS on the road and are scoring 31.7 points in those 7 games.
QB Carson Palmer continues to be as dominant as anyone as he’s tossed for 4003 yards this season and has 31 touchdowns to just 9 interceptions. Palmer had a solid performance against Minnesota as he went for 310 and 2 touchdowns.
The run defense of Arizona will look to follow up their shutting down of Adrian Peterson. The star RB had just 3.0 yards per carry on Thursday.
With 3 teams tied for first in the NFC East, Philadelphia cannot afford a loss here, plain and simple.
Easier said than done, the Eagles have came back from the dead with wins over the Patriots and Bills in their last 2 games. QB Sam Bradford finally looks like he’s fitting in with the offensive style Chip Kelly has to offer.
Bradford threw for 247 yards and had a 53 yard touchdown to his credit. This season, the Eagles QB has thrown for 2664 yards, but has just 14 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Bradford has been a struggle as a whole, but has looked clutch and legit over these last two wins.
The Eagles defense has also stepped up big time over the last 2 games. A team that has allowed 24.8 points against per game, had a giant role in the win over New England and shut down the Bills.
Philadelphia is 6-7 SU and 6-7 ATS.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Philadelphia ATS
The Eagles are looking like a legit NFL team over these last two weeks.
An outright win here is almost a must, so don’t question their motivation in this one. Still, they’ll need to play like they have on both sides of the ball and it starts with Bradford. He needs to keep the offense rolling and keep the defense off the field.
