Philadelphia Eagles improve to 4-1 after dominating Arizona Cardinals

With 108 yards on 26 carries, he's also the team's third leading rusher.

It's not complicated. It's not fancy. And the running back, luckily, he went to that guy.

For the season, the Eagles are making 53.4 percent of third downs, which is No. 1 in the NFL.

Blount is one of those new leaders.

Wins in both games would send separate messages. They did it four games in a row over the 1944 and 1945 seasons. With the pace he's on, it's not out of the realm of possibility Wentz can throw 30-plus touchdowns this season.

Combine those two strengths, and you're going to control the clock. The team lost right tackle Lane Johnson to a PED suspension for 10 of those 11 games, but his absence was not the only issue during the collapse. "Which, I think, is more unsafe", Jenkins said in the locker room Sunday evening. Running back Wendell Smallwood also sat out with a knee injury. Fitzgerald had six catches for 51 yards on the day. The defense remains ferocious, despite injuries to cornerstones Fletcher Cox and Ronald Darby. It took 10 plays to cover 54 yards, since Wentz took his only sack of the game and Corey Clement was dropped for a one-yard loss on a second-down play, but they got to the end zone, on a 15-yard Wentz-to-Trey Burton touchdown.

Agholor, who is playing more in the slot this year, finished the day with four catches for a career- and game-high 93 receiving yards.

You just can't beat that combination.

The 2015 first-round pick from Southern Cal had 59 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns on his resume heading into the 2017 campaign.

The Eagles' second-year quarterback made some history Sunday, becoming the franchise's first signal caller to toss three touchdown passes in the first quarter. He ended the play by doing a back splash across the goal line.

"It definitely helps from the standpoint of we really don't have time to dwell on your past success", coach Doug Pederson said.

"We tried to run against four and we didn't do it very well", Arians said. Thursday games are always tough to predict due to the lack of rest and the sloppy play we usually see, but the Panthers have been more impressive in their recent performances, and being at home should help here as well. "We need to get it going". He's the first person to come up to an offensive line and thank them for picking up the blitz so that he had time to throw it downfield, even if he was the reason why we picked up the blitz. The 21-point first quarter led gave the Eagles all the points they needed to please a crowd that endured rain Sunday. "I think sometimes you got to shake things up to get what you want".

These last three weeks, no opposing back has rushed for more than 35 yards against the Eagles, and in each game, Blount has averaged at least 5.3 yards per carry. Philadelphia entered Sunday with the league's 30th-ranked pass defense, and although that'll change after a good showing against Arizona, the Eagles couldn't intercept Cards quarterback Carson Palmer despite possessing a big lead all afternoon.
