Philadelphia Eagles Vs Arizona Cardinals Game Day Preview
It is a battle of the BIRDS! This afternoon’s match between the visiting Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals will feature two former Oklahoma QB’s. One was a Heisman Trophy winner (Murray) while the other one came pretty dam close (Hurts)! Now their respective teams competing for their playoff lives.
Second-year quarterback Kyler Murray plays host to rookie Jalen Hurts at Glendale, Ariz.
Hurts, who finished second in the Heisman vote after last season, replaced the struggling Carson Wentz last week and led the Eagles to a pivotal 24-21 win against the New Orleans Saints.
Lets see what the kid can do for a second consecutive week! The Eagles are only one game back in the loss column behind NFC East leader Washington Football Club with only three weeks remaining.
In the upset of the Saints, Hurts became the first quarterback in the past 70 years to throw for 150 yards with a passing touchdown and rush for 100 yards in his first career start.
He finished 17 for 30 for 167 yards with a touchdown. He also had 18 carries for 106 yards with a fumble, his lone turnover of the day.
Arizona’s defense and Murray’s dual threat as a running quarterback were the difference in last week’s 26-7 win at the New York Giants. The defense produced eight sacks in the win, which snapped the Cardinals’ three-game losing streak.
Murray ran 13 times for 47 yards. The Cardinals are 7-1 this season when Murray runs at least 10 times. He threw for 244 yards and a touchdown without an interception on 24-for-35 passing.
“The vibe was different, more free, everybody just relaxed and having fun, honestly, not putting any pressure on anybody,” Murray said of the victory. “We just came out and played. It’s fun when you’re winning. I think that’s what it comes down to.”
