The Philadelphia Eagles won today defeating the Washington Redskins 24-16 and now have a record of 6-5 in the NFC East. Also, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-14 today, and are now 6-4 and tied for second place in the NFC West.
You might ask yourself what does this all mean? This is means that the Eagles vs. Cardinals game has that much more meaning on December 1st.
According to a league source, NJ.com has confirmed that the December 1st game will be flexed to Sunday night replacing the New York Giants-Washington Redskins game.
This is great news if this happens. We won’t officially find out until Monday about this flexed game but this game will have playoff implications on the line.
For the Arizona Cardinals, this is great as the team has turned their play around tremendously on both sides of the ball. Rookie running back Andre Ellington has been a spark plug in the backfield, while the Cardinals’ wide receivers have stepped up big time including Michael Floyd’s big game today against the Jaguars.
Today versus the Jaguars, Floyd had six catches for 193 yards and a 91 yard touchdown reception. Also this game on December 1st will be a great time for the Cardinals’ defense to show on national TV that they are the real deal with playmakers such as Darnell Dockett, Karlos Dansby, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu.
This game has the makings to be a great one on December 1st.
