This game may end up being a tough battle for both teams with division titles and playoff seeding at stake.
Arizona Cardinals (11-2)
The Cards are rolling with a seven-game winning streak. They have secured a playoff berth, but they need to win tonight to capture the NFC West division title. Their division-rival Seattle Seahawks (9-5) are marching confidently into the playoff picture as they just notched their fifth consecutive win today against the Cleveland Browns (3-11).
According to this article from arizonacardinals.com, this is the list of things that can happen for the Cardinals with a win tonight:
First division title since 2009.
Secure a bye in the first round of the playoffs with a Green Bay loss to Oakland.
A franchise record for wins in a single season (12).
A franchise record for "road" wins in a single season (7).
Second-longest winning streak in franchise history (8).
Improve to 5-0 in prime-time games this season. They have never won more than two prime-time games in a season.
That same article pointed out that Bruce Arians is 41-16 in his 57 games as a head coach for a win percentage of 0.719.
Among all-time NFL head coaches with at least 50 career games, only four have a higher win percentage than Arians: Guy Chamberlin (.784), John Madden (.759), Vince Lombardi (.749) and Ray Flaherty (.720).
Philadelphia Eagles (6-7)
It's been an odd season with generally mixed results for the Eagles, yet they are all of a sudden firing on all cylinders with a two-game winning streak. A win tonight would help them stay in the hunt for a division title in the NFC East. It's quite the dumpster-fire of a division for the 2015 NFL regular season, which is helping to take some of the attention away from the miserable AFC South.
