GLENDALE, Arz. - Greetings from the desert, where the temperatures have topped 100 degrees all weekend.

At least it's a dry heat.

Today's Eagles' game against the Cardinals features a matchup of two of only six teams that began the NFL season with two victories. The Eagles will be trying to get to 3-0 for the first time since 2004. The drought has been much longer for the Cards, who haven't been 3-0 since 1974.

Here's are a few players to keep an eye on today. Enjoy the game.

1. Eagles C Dallas Reynolds: Reynolds will be making his first career NFL start in place of injured C Jason Kelce.

2. Eagles T Demetress Bell: Bell gets the call at left tackle. He's replacing King Dunlap, who is sidelined with a strained hamstring.

3. Eagles CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: He's off to a terrific start this season. He's got revenge on his mind today, since the Cardinals traded him in exchange for QB Kevin Kolb a year ago.

4. Cards QB Kevin Kolb: He was supposed to be the Eagles' QB of the future. That changed when Michael Vick replaced him in the 2010 opener and reached the Pro Bowl. Kolb played well the first two games this season.

5. Eagles WR Damaris Johnson: The rookie free agent will get a lot of playing time today in place of WR Jeremy Maclin, who is out with a strained hip flexor.
