PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles look to remain atop the NFC East and improve to 4-1 with a win today against the Arizona Cardinals. Ranked as high as third in some publications NFL power rankings, the Birds are looking to prove this year is different than last, when they were also 3-1 before losing 8 of their next 10 and missing out on the playoffs.

Two things to look for in today's game: The Eagles running game vs. the Cardinals Run Defense. Wendell Smallwood is out for the Birds.

Expect a lot of LaGarrette Blount and Corey Clement who have been running the ball really well. But the Cardinals have the 10th best run defense in the NFL. Also, the Birds defensive line vs. Carson Palmer.

Palmer has been sacked 17 times already, on pace for almost 70! They Birds defensive front are licking their chops.
