ARIZONA: The Cardinals again reached into the Bill Cowher coaching tree to get their head coach, and Bruce Arians brought offensive line guru Harold Goodwin from Indianapolis with him to be the offensive coordinator. Expect them to build this offense around a power running game with a lot of between-the-tackles running. Arians had Rashard Mendenhall in Pittsburgh and plans on giving him a monster workload. Mendenhall should be better in his second full season back from a torn ACL. Ryan Williams is shaping up as a change-of-pace back and will have to beat out Mendenhall for third down duties. Arians' passing game takes a lot of deep shots. While Carson Palmer's arm strength disappeared years ago, he's still willing to loft passes deep and let his receivers try to make plays. That's good news for Larry Fitzgerald, and Arians will use a lot of movement and bunch formations to get him open. The Cards will use a lot of three-receiver sets with Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd running some deep crosses, and Andre Roberts in the slot. TE Rob Housler should be frequently targeted over the middle. Arians has never used his backs as receivers much, but always had a habit of getting cute in the red zone, using a lot of play-action. Fitzgerald is obviously their best red zone threat. The Cardinals allowed 137 rushing YPG last year (5th-most in NFL), but they seriously bolstered their defense in the offseason with new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and four quality free agents in LB Karlos Dansby, SS Yeremiah Bell and DEs Matt Shaughnessy and Frostee Rucker. Rookies FS Tyrann Mathieu and ILB Keith Minter could be special players, but two Arizona players that already are special are DE Calais Campbell and CB Patrick Peterson, who had seven of the Cardinals' 22 interceptions last year (2nd in NFL).
PHILADELPHIA: There's been much conjecture about whether or not new head coach Chip Kelly's frenetic Oregon offense will translate to the NFL. But most likely, he's not bringing that offense to Philly. The Eagles will surely play up-tempo, and they'll likely mix some read option stuff in, in an attempt to get LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown into space. And Michael Vick will get to run a few keepers. But new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is from the Andy Reid coaching tree and will surely bring a more traditional touch to this offense. McCoy will take the majority of the work, but Brown will also get plenty of reps. The Eagles will try to use tempo and play-action to create confusion in their passing game. Expect a lot of two-tight end looks with Vick on the move more often than not. It's unclear if Brent Celek will hold off James Casey and Zach Ertz, two tight ends Kelly brought in. DeSean Jackson figures to be even more of an all-or-nothing deep threat than he was during the Andy Reid years. Jeremy Maclin, if healthy, should be their No. 1 receiver with the ability to be effective in a variety of roles. The backs will also be featured heavily in the screen game. The Eagles figure to get a little more pass-heavy in the red zone, where their multi-tight end sets will create play-action opportunities. The Eagles hope new defensive coordinator Billy Davis can improve the team's pathetic 13 takeaways in 2012 (tied for last in NFL). Davis' 3-4 based scheme will operate in multiple looks with several blitz packages. It will feature many new faces, such as mountainous NT Isaac Sopoaga, pass-rushing OLB Connor Barwin and possibly four new starters in the secondary -- CB Bradley Fletcher, CB Cary Williams FS Kenny Phillips and SS Pat Chung. Two hard-nosed linebackers remain in ILB DeMeco Ryans and OLB Trent Cole.

*Cardinals-Eagles Preview* ==========================


Spearheaded by outstanding play from their quarterbacks, the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals are rolling into a key NFC matchup with playoff implications.

Philadelphia's Nick Foles and Arizona's Carson Palmer, however, figure to be challenged by defenses that have been playing at a high level.

The Eagles will try to stay atop the NFC East with their fourth straight victory Sunday, while the Cardinals look to keep pace in the wild-card hunt with their first five-game winning streak in 36 years.

Before heading into the bye week, Foles went 17 of 26 for 298 yards and rushed for a season-high 47 yards and a touchdown in a 24-16 victory over visiting Washington on Nov. 17.

Foles has won four of five starts since taking over for the injured Michael Vick, including three straight victories to vault the Eagles (6-5) into a first-place tie with Dallas.

As a starter, Foles has connected on 63.6 percent of his attempts for 1,308 yards with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions. He hasn't tossed a pick in 199 passes overall dating to last season - the second-longest streak in team history behind Vick's 224.

Although Vick is nearing a return from his hamstring injury, Kelly made it official earlier this week that Philadelphia would ride the red-hot Foles the rest of the way.

"I feel the same," said Foles, who has a 128.0 rating and is on pace to break the regular-season record of 122.5 set by Aaron Rodgers in 2011. "Nothing has really changed. I'm going to prepare the same way I always have."

Foles now faces an Arizona team that ranks eighth in points allowed at 20.3 per game and total defense at 317.1 yards. The Cardinals (7-4) held an opponent to 14 or fewer points for the fifth time in eight games in a 40-11 victory over Indianapolis on Sunday.

"Identity-wise," quarterback Carson Palmer said, "we're a defensive football team."

With the way Palmer has been playing, however, Arizona has been equally strong on the offensive side of late.

After going 30 of 42 for 419 yards with two touchdowns in a 27-14 win at Jacksonville on Nov. 17, Palmer was 26 of 37 for 314 yards with two more scores against the Colts.

He's the first player in team history to record 300 yards passing, a completion percentage of 70.0 and a rating of 110.0 in consecutive games.

While Palmer completed passes to 10 receivers against Indianapolis, Michael Floyd had his second straight 100-yard receiving game with seven catches for 104 yards. Larry Fitzgerald caught five for 52 yards, becoming the youngest player in NFL history to reach 11,000 receiving yards.

Fitzgerald has been tough on the Eagles with 25 catches for 412 yards and six touchdowns in his last three meetings, including Arizona's 32-25 win in the 2009 NFC championship game.

With four straight victories, Arizona has drawn even with San Francisco for the sixth and final NFC playoff spot, though the 49ers hold the tiebreaker.

"I think there's no reason we don't (make the playoffs)," coach Bruce Arians said. "We have a big game this week again against a team that's a game behind us on the road, was in first place and fighting for the division title, so it will be another good barometer."

The Cardinals seek their first five-game winning streak since a six-game run in 1977, and first 8-4 start since 2009.

They could have their hands full with a Philadelphia defense that hasn't given up more than 21 points while winning five of seven after allowing 34.5 points per game during a 1-3 start.

"The defense turned it around very well," said wideout DeSean Jackson, who has team highs of 58 catches and 985 yards. "They're doing some great things. As an offense, it's great to have your defense going out there and competing, doing a good job, making the other team punt."

LeSean McCoy, the league's leading rusher with 1,009 yards, also could play a big role as the Eagles try for their second straight win at home after snapping a team-worst 10-game skid there.

McCoy has rushed for 151 yards on 5.6 per carry along with a touchdown in two career meetings with the Cardinals, who have the NFL's second-ranked run defense at 81.3 yards a contest.

Arizona's top rusher might not be available. Speedy rookie Andre Ellington, who has run for 441 yards and 6.0 per carry, injured his knee in practice Thursday and will be "a game-time decision," according to Arians.

The Cardinals have won the last three matchups, including the 2009 NFC title game.
