The battle of birds went south early Sunday for the Cardinals, as Arizona had its four-game winning streak snapped on the road 24-21 by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Trailing by as many as 17 points early in the third, the Cardinals pulled to within three but couldn’t complete the comeback, turning the ball over on downs deep in their own territory with just under two minutes remaining.

Heading into the game, if you would have told prognosticators the high-flying Philly offense would finish with 307 yards on 73 plays, converting just 5/16 third downs and scoring on just two of four trips inside the redzone, odds are they would have responded “so the Cardinals won, right?”


Despite holding the Eagles top offensive weapons, running back LeSean McCoy and wide receiver DeSean Jackson, to 24 touches for 115 and three for 36, respectively, Arizona lost the turnover battle 3-0, including a fumble and interception on their first two possessions by quarterback Carson Palmer.

Unable to overcome a sloppy start, the Cardinals (7-5) will look to begin a new streak, as they try to regain some ground in the wild card race, when the St. Louis Rams (5-7) come to town Sunday afternoon (4:25 p.m. EST).
