Quick Take: Surprise 2-0 teams square off in desert and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing:Of course -- we all knew this Eagles-Cardinals showdown would be the most anticipated game between undefeateds in Week 3. ... Wait, what? OK, not really. But it is. Michael Vick's Eagles have pulled out two wins via late-game heroics, overcoming mistakes to do so. But given that they began the season with a trip to Cleveland and a home game against Baltimore, their 2-0 record isn't shocking. The Cardinals' 2-0 start is. Taking down the Patriots in their Gillette Stadium opener, thanks to the star turn of cornerback Patrick Peterson and an underrated/stout defense? Yes, the NFL certainly took notice. This week will tell us tons about Arizona.

What to watch: No one rushes the quarterback like the Eagles, and they'll be zeroing in on a familiar face. Kevin Kolb is squaring off against his old team, a storyline that might get mentioned a time or two in Philadelphia this week. The Cardinals host the Eagles, and the atmosphere could make things even more interesting. A win would surely create more than a few believers. For Arizona to pull it off, harassers Calais Campbell and Darnell Dockett must collapse Vick's pocket and keep him from getting loose. Easier said than done.
