We have reached week five of the NFL season.
This match up is a big NFC match up between two teams who have hopes that they will reach the post season this year, and a win here would go a long way.
The Arizona Cardinals fresh off a win make the trip to the city of brotherly love to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
This is the first match up since 2015 when the Cardinals came out ahead by the final score of 40-17.
The Arizona Cardinals haven’t looked good in any game so far this season, but they still somehow come into this game with a 2-2 record.
Their two wins have come against the Colts and the 49ers, two teams who will finish near the bottom of the NFL standings when the season ends.
In their last game it took till overtime, but they came out ahead against the 49ers 18-15. Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown pass in overtime, and it ended up being a walk off win.
Even with that win though, the Cardinals are really missing David Johnson. They have had all kinds of trouble running the ball which in turn has made it really hard to pass the ball.
The defensive side of the ball has been the strength of this team so far this year. In their last game against the 49ers they only game up 15 points and the 49ers really had to fight for everyone of those points.
To win this game the offense needs to be better. Carson Palmer needs to get out to a fast start and in a rhythm early.
If he opens up the game struggling again, they won’t have much of a chance to win this game against the Eagles.
On the other side of this match up is the Philadelphia Eagles who have a lot of confidence coming into this game with a 3-1 record.
Their only loss this season was a seven point defeat at the hands of the Chiefs, who might be the top team in the AFC.
In the other games they beat the Giants, Chargers and the Redskins. Although most of their games have been close they have done a good job of closing out the game at the end.
Now Carson Wentz’s stats haven’t been eye popping but he seems to make the good plays down the stretches of games and that has led them to three wins.
To win this game the defense needs to be really good early. They need to make Carson Palmer feel uncomfortable early, and that might be able to cause a couple of turnovers.
The one thing the defense can’t do is struggle. They can’t let Palmer through the ball around the field, or they will end up being upset in this game.

The Philadelphia Eagles are the better team on paper and that is how the game will play out too.
NFL Free Week 5 Score Prediction: Eagles 24 – Cardinals 20
I think the Eagles will make Palmer uncomfortable early and that will lead to a couple early scores. The Cardinals will come back and although they will cover the spread, they won’t win the game.
