Eagles preparing for big showdown with Cardinals

Two of the hottest teams in the NFC collide on Sunday when the Cardinals visit the Eagles.

PHILADELPHIA -

The Philadelphia Eagles, winners of three-straight games, host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. The Cardinals have won four consecutive games.

The Eagles have worked themselves into a first-place tie with Dallas atop the NFC East. If they want to stay there, they'll have to stop a potent offense this week.

Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer has been very sharp over the last few weeks. With the help of wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, the Cardinals all of a sudden have the look of a playoff-caliber offense.

Their defense has been good all season. Philadelphia's has been getting better and better over the course of the season, which should mean a very good game on Sunday.
