The Arizona Cardinals head back east today just slightly less banged up than their opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. While the Eagles have injuries to their top 2 running backs, the Cardinals have multiple injuries to their secondary. Expect the Eagles offense to be airing it out a little more than they would normally. In related news, Donovan McNabb is expected to start at QB after being benched last week against the Ravens.
