Game Recap: Eagles Blast Cardinals; Improve To 4-1

Week 5 picks against the spread

On the ensuing Cardinals possession, defensive end Brandon Graham sacked quarterback Carson Palmer at the Arizona 29 to set up a third-and-16.

Wentz was 21 of 30 for 304 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

The Eagles are 4-1, and Wentz is a big reason why.

Extra special: Kenjon Barner, a former Eagles backup running back signed off the street to replace Darren Sproles on September 26, ripped off three punt returns for 110 yards, including a 76-yarder in the first quarter that set up the Eagles' second touchdown.

The Eagles stormed to an early lead against Arizona on Sunday and maintained that dominance during a 34-7 victory Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Fitzgerald became the third player in National Football League history to catch a pass in 200 consecutive games. He is the first quarterback with a touchdown pass on three consecutive attempts since Ben Roethlisberger did it Week 4 of 2016, per the Elias Sports Bureau, and is the first quarterback in Eagles history to throw three touchdown passes in the first quarter of a game.


The Eagles held a 24-7 lead midway through the third quarter We'll provide further updates on Johnson's status if and when they come in. Two of their wins were over NFC East opponents.

Jake Elliott kicked two field goals on the day, hitting from 28 and 36 yards out. Johnson missed the second half with what the team called a "head injury".

NOTES: The Eagles were short-handed without DT Fletcher Cox (calf) and RB Wendell Smallwood (knee). Reddick was a star at nearby Temple and was drafted No. 13 overall in the first round by Arizona.

Philadelphia was up 21-0 before the first quarter was out, taking advantage of poor play by the Arizona offense, a great punt return by Kenjon Barner, and a great play from Wentz to Torrey Smith.

Cardinals special teams lost a valuable member when Aaron Brewer left in the first quarter with an arm injury. Eagles DE Vinny Curry recorded his first sack of the season.

Through the first five games of the season, Agholor has been the Eagles' best wide receiver, and that was the case again on Sunday.
