Philadelphia Eagles had a stellar start in the 2022-23 NFL regular season. They are currently the only team to be on 4-0. The Eagles hope to extend their lead even further as they prepare to battle against the Arizona Cardinals next.
The Eagles’ tremendous start is the result of its players’ form. Their defense seems near impregnable now with Reddick, Graham, and Slay winning three straight NFC defensive player of the week awards. As for the offense, Jalen Hurts is leading his team with four outstanding performances. Some other players who distinguished themselves in the first four games include Miles Sanders and A.J. Brown.
The Eagles’ next challenge is this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinal had an average start to the season. Currently sitting at 2-2, they are determined to bounce back. Kyle Murray, the quarterback of the Cardinals, is eager for their match against the Eagles.
“We started off slow this season,” Murray said. “We’re entering the second quarter of the season and I think it’s a great opportunity. We’ve got a great team coming in. In order to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best.”
As for the team environment in the Eagles camp, Jalen Hurts ensures that there is no chance for complacency. “I will say this, too: I didn’t get any questions about the Cardinals for this game so I don’t want y’all thinking (they’re not worth mentioning) — this is a really good team we’re about to play,” Hurts said in the pre-game press conference.
Jalen Hurts to Media: “I didn’t get any questions about the #Cardinals, for real. This is a really good football team. Good defense, disruptive front, great speed on backend. Lets not set that precedent for that, this is a good football team.”#Eaglespic.twitter.com/b30TUfyzRO
