3 takeaways from the Cardinals' blowout loss to the Eagles

Panthers fan arrested after sucker-punches other fan in stand

Carson Wentz calls third downs the "money down".

Now, the Cardinals can't come back out like they did on Sunday against anyone else and expect to survive for a chance to contend at the end of the season. He is the man. The Arizona defense had no answer for Wentz on third down, and it cost them the game. Wentz has clearly improved from year one to year two, exhibiting a Russell Wilson-like climb into the periphery of great quarterbacks. Wentz, despite missing Wendell Smallwood the entire game and Lane Johnson for half due to a head injury, just keeps getting better and better with time.

"Don't think you have to do too much". However, after they entered halftime with the score 21-7, Arizona coach Bruce Arians thought his team was in a good spot.

While it's way too early to suggest this No. 2 overall pick will have a similar impact as the old No. 2 overall pick, what can be said is it's impossible to regularly contend in the National Football League without a high-end quarterback.

It's still early, but Wentz's performance has earned him a flawless 158.3 passer rating through one quarter. Agholor repaid that trust with a 72-yard bomb, the best play of a day full of highlights.

In his second year in the NFL, Donovan McNabb came second in the MVP vote and led the Eagles to an 11-win season and a trip to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz stepped back and fired 59-yard pass down the middle to Torrey Smith. The rest was just stat padding.

Famous South Jersey native and baseball player Mike Trout is at the Eagles game today, so the team's offense performed an impressively elaborate baseball celebration to honor him (and possibly recruit him for the Phillies, who knows). The 34-year-old Fitzgerald shows little sign of slowing down, he has 26 catches (fourth in the NFL) this season and he caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the Cardinals 18-15 win in overtime against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. How impressive is that? But if the Eagles keep this up for the next two weeks, everyone in the division will be looking up at them.

With things going well on Sunday, the Eagles had many opportunities to celebrate. Barner averaged 36.7 yards per punt return and granted the Eagles great field position early and often. Has seven career games of 300-plus passing yards. Wentz was 11 for 12 for 225 yards and three touchdowns on third down.

For the game, Wentz threw four touchdowns, including a pair of deep bombs. The lone miss was a wide-open throw to Zach Ertz in which the Eagles settled for a field goal.

There's the team's third-down conversion rate of 53.4 percent, tops in the league this season.

And yet, things can unravel fast.

The Eagles already led the Cardinals, 14-0, but it seemed like Arizona was still hanging on by a thread and the Eagles needed to step on the gas to put the game away early. "We'll have to look at what we're doing again and who's doing it, but at times we looked good and at times we looked really pitiful".
