Instant Reaction: Cardinals Beat Eagles 24-20 In Battle Of The Birds

It came down to the final play, but the Arizona Cardinals pulled out a 24-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Turning Point: John Brown's 75-yard touchdown, which put Arizona up 24-20 with under two minutes left.

Eagles MVP: Jeremy Maclin. Maclin left it all on the field (and some of it on the Cardinals' Gatorade table), racking up 187 receiving yards and 2 TDs on 12 catches.

Cardinals MVP: Larry Fitzgerald is determined to prove that he hasn't lost a step. Fitz ended the day with 160 yards and a TD on 7 catches, and his 80-yard touchdown showed that even at 31, he still has wheels.

Gutsy Call of the Day: The John Brown 75-yard TD strike that put the Cardinals up 24-20 with 1:33 remaining. The Eagles clearly weren't prepared for a deep ball on third down, but Carson Palmer found Brown over the middle for what turned out to be the decisive score.

What's Next? The Eagles take on JJ Watt and the Texans in Houston, while the Cardinals travel to JerryWorld to take on the Dallas Cowboys.
