Eagles’ best number: 99 (length of Sydney Brown’s pick six)

Eagles’ worst number: 449 (Cardinals total yards from scrimmage)

View from my living room:
That woman in the stands at the Linc summed it up perfectly when cameras captured her yelling, “What the hell are you doing?” during the Eagles’ next-to-last drive.

Three stars

  1. Cardinals Running Back James Conner (26 carries, 128 yards, 2 total TDs).
  2. Cardinals Quarterback Kyler Murray (3 touchdown passes).
  3. Eagles safety Sydney Brown (99-yard interception return for TD).

Eagles’ best play
Brown grabbed an interception at the 1-yard line, sprinted about 70 yards up the right sideline, then weaved his way to the end zone for a touchdown in the first quarter.  It is tied for the fourth-longest interception return in Eagles’ history.  Lito Sheppard's 102 Interception Return for Touchdown in 2006 against the Cowboys is the Franchise Record.

Eagles’ worst play
Conner scored the game-tying touchdown with a terrific, one-handed touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Arizona then converted the two-point conversion to force a 28-28 tie.

Turning point
The Eagles took a 31-28 lead on Jake Elliott’s 43-yard field goal with 2:33 left in regulation, but the Cards quickly sliced up the Eagles’ defense like they did all game. Conner capped the game-winning drive by barreling into the end zone with 32 seconds left.

Did you notice?
Eagles are currently the No. 5 seed in the NFC because of this loss.  The Cowboys can clinch the NFC East with a win next week against the Commanders or an Eagles loss to the Giants.… 49ers have now clinched the Number 1 seed in the NFC Postseason.… The Cardinals topped the 30-point mark for the first time this season.… The Cards did not punt the entire game.… Their 32 first downs were the most against the Eagles since 2008.… Eagles wide receiver Julio Jones caught two touchdown passes.  The 34-year-old became the oldest Eagles wide receiver to catch two TD passes in a game since Irving Fryar in 1997.
