The game looked destined for overtime for much of the fourth quarter until Matt Ammendola’s 43-yard field sailed wide right. It was the biggest test the Philadelphia Eagles have faced all season, as the offense sputtered more than at any other point thus far, but they still secured a 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals to stay undefeated at 5-0.

Offensive spotlight: It was nice to finally see Rondale Moore integrated into the Cardinals' offense. He caught seven of eight targets for 68 yards after a disappointing showing in his first game back last week. He and Hollywood Brown, who caught eight passes for 78 yards and a score, were pretty much the only positives from the Cardinals' passing attack.

Defensive spotlight: Haason Reddick continues to be well worth every dime he was paid this offseason. He racked up a game-high six pressures on 28 pass-rushing snaps, including a sack. He’s now at 14 pressures and five sacks over his past three games.

Rookie spotlight: Jordan Davis continues to be an NFL-ready run defender. He collected three tackles and two stops on only 11 snaps against the run. He’s now easily the highest-graded rookie defensive tackle in the league.

Offensive line spotlight: It was yet another offensive line clinic for the Eagles. That was especially the case in pass protection, a facet in which the Eagles line allowed a grand total of nine pressures on 40 pass-blocking snaps. Jason Kelce and Iosua Opeta each didn’t allow a single pressure on the day.
