We're back for another week of Sunday Night Football, and this one matches up two teams in the thick of the playoff race. The Philadelphia Eagles are hosting the Arizona Cardinals on NBC, with the game set to kick off at 5:30 p.m. PT. We'll have other threads if you want to talk about the 49ers latest loss, so keep this one as just SNF.
This could be a fun one, with both teams looking to improve their playoff positioning. The Cardinals are 11-2, and a win will secure the NFC West title. The Eagles are 6-7, and a win will move them into a tie with Washington atop the NFC East. Philadelphia has a huge opportunity next week at home against Washington, but a win today would put them in significantly better position.
The Cardinals are a 3.5-point favorite in this game. They have won seven straight games, but are 3-4 ATS in those games. The Eagles are 6-7 SU and ATS this season. When Sam Bradford has started and finished a game, they are 6-4 SU/ATS, and 5-1 SU/ATS in the last six such games. We'll see what tonight brings.
