Big Red Wolf Report: After the Raiders and before the Eagles

Oct 24, 2014, 5:40 PM | Updated: 6:06 pm

Last week, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Raiders in Oakland, 24-13. 5-1 looks really good on paper, but now the Cards take on the Philadelphia Eagles at University of Phoenix Stadium.

This week Big Red needs to run the ball like they did last week in Oakland. Possessions will be critical.

The Eagles are a blitz heavy team. They like to come after opposing quarterbacks and do it often. The Cards have done a very good job picking up the blitz and scored a couple of touchdowns against the Raiders in blitz situations.

The BRWR believes Darren Sproles will play on Sunday, even though he might be a game-time decision. Sproles and LeSean McCoy form a dynamic duo, explosive and freakishly athletic. It’s this athleticism that has me concerned.
