Here's what else we learned in the game:
- Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis deserves a lot of credit. He confused Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer with a number of creative blitzes Sunday. The Eagles sacked Palmer five times, including two apiece by linebackers Brandon Graham and Trent Cole. Philly had 11 passes defensed. When the Cardinals had a chance to win late, they couldn't pick up a first down.
- With all that said, Palmer had a terrible day overall. The numbers don't look that bad, but he made a lot of bad throws.
- It was a strange game for quarterback Nick Foles and the Eagles' offense. Philadelphia had just five first downs in its first four drives. Sitting on a 24-7 lead, the Eagles put up just 30 yards combined in their last four drives. Foles was bailed out after making an awful decision on a late interception that was overturned by a penalty.
Foles was sensational in between those stretches in his toughest matchup of the year. He did plenty right, always willing to pull the trigger on deep throws. But this isn't a sustaining offense, and the Eagles struggle to maintain leads.
