Cardinals vs. Eagles: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IOctober 17, 2016

The Arizona Cardinals dominated the visiting Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, winning by a score of 27-6.

Michael Vick and the Eagles offense couldn't get anything going, as the Cardinals defense swarmed the ball on every play and sacked Vick five times.

Vick ended up completing only 17-of-37 of his passes on the day for 217 yards with zero touchdowns and zero interceptions, but he did lose two fumbles. He was sacked at the end of the first half by Kerry Rhodes—a play that resulted in a fumble that was recovered by James Sanders for a 93-yard touchdown.

Kevin Kolb had one of his best games as a pro, completing 17-of-24 passes for 222 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

His favorite target on this day was none other than Larry Fitzgerald, who busted out of his two-game slump with nine catches for 114 yards and one touchdown.

The Cardinals defense forced three turnovers, and after three games must be considered one of the best defenses in the NFL after taking down the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in successive weeks. 

The Cardinals will now stay at home to host the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, while the Eagles will go home to prepare to host the New York Giants.
