Why this is their biggest game of the year

Eagles (2-0) at Arizona Cardinals (2-0), Sunday, 4:05 p.m., University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz

The Eagles are looking to go 3-0 for the first time since 2004, which was also the last season in which they reached the Super Bowl. In order to stay undefeated, however, they will have to beat a surprising Cardinals team that is led by former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb. The Cards are coming off a 20-18 upset at New England.

Evaluating the Eagles

(Observations from the 24-23 victory over Baltimore)

Cornerback Brandon Boykin: Priceless effort as the team's nickel corner.

Tight end Brent Celek: May want to try out for the Olympics as a hurdler.

Center Jason Kelce: Big loss for the offense.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks: Never came off the field on defense.

Center Dallas Reynolds: Played well despite lack of experience.

Quarterback Michael Vick: Keeps getting it done in the clutch.

Evaluating their offensive line

The unit took a big hit when both Kelce and right tackle King Dunlap (strained hamstring) left with injuries during the third quarter. But Reynolds and Demetress Bell filled in well. The Eagles scored a touchdown on their first drive in the lineup and they were both on the field during the game-winning, 80-yard march to the end zone.

3-and-out with Andy Reid

Q: What was your impression of the offensive line replacements?

A: Reynolds did a respectable job, as did Bell.

Q: Will you be signing a backup center?

A: We well accumulate all the information we possibly can and see how it works out.

Q: What do you think about playing against Kevin Kolb?

A: Kevin is a good football player. I wish him the best of luck for 15 games.
