By the time the fourth quarter began on Sunday night against the Cardinals, quarterback Sam Bradford had been knocked down a half-dozen times, once hard enough on his tender left shoulder that he had to leave the game for a play until the throbbing subsided. The score was already 30-10 and it would be hard to blame Bradford if he had enjoyed about as much of the evening as he could stand. So when Jason Peters couldn't contain his assignment on the left side of the line and Bradford stepped up only to see an untouched blitzing linebacker about to lay him out again, what happened next has to be placed in context.

Chip Kelly The coach's fourth-down decision wasn't a bad one. He knew the Eagles needed to get points against the Cardinals. But the play was questionable. He chose Ryan Mathews over Darren Sproles and DeMarco Murray - running backs who had more success in short yardage this season - and ran him wide. Bill Davis The defensive coordinator made a questionable late substitution on the goal line in the first quarter. Davis sent in his nickel personnel and the Cardinals predictably ran the ball against the smaller defense.

Cris Collinsworth watched Sam Bradford step forward in the pocket with a crowd of defenders around him Sunday in the Eagles-Bills game. He threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Nelson Agholor. "Wow," Collinsworth uttered to himself. Collinsworth, the Emmy award-winning analyst for NBC's Sunday Night Football, will be part of the broadcast team for the Eagles-Cardinals game on Sunday. He studied the Eagles this week and his first takeaway was the performance of Bradford. "I thought how he played last week was a big step," Collinsworth said Thursday in a telephone interview.

When the Eagles have the ball The biggest question about the Eagles offense on Sunday is how the running back playing time will be distributed. Ryan Mathews is probable and could return after missing three games because of a concussion, so the Eagles have another player to join the combination of Darren Sproles, Kenjon Barner, and DeMarco Murray. Murray led the team in snaps in every game he played before last week. Coach Chip Kelly said the decrease vs. New England was because of the matchup, and that explanation will be put to the test on Sunday.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Jeffery Lurie was sweating, his tufty white hair a-muss, but the spring in his bobbing gait had a youthful zest to it. Asked to stop and speak, he politely declined. He had said enough for one day. Lurie had just "broken it down" after the Eagles' 35-28 upset of the team he once loved; the team he tried to buy. After a win, and after Chip Kelly addresses the club, the team allows that day's hero to go to the middle of the team huddle and send the Eagles off with inspiration; break it down, as it were.

Ryan Mathews will miss a second straight game and the status of Jason Peters and Cedric Thornton is still unclear as the Eagles travel to New England for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Mathews was ruled out on Friday after not practicing this week. He suffered a concussion on Nov. 15 against Miami. The Eagles rushed for just 68 yards without Mathews on Thanksgiving against Detroit. Peters, who is dealing with back and ankle injuries, was a full participant at practice each day this week.

DETROIT - Jason Peters exited the Eagles' 45-14 loss to the Detroit Lions in the first quarter Thursday with a left ankle injury. He did not return. The Eagles moved Lane Johnson to left tackle and inserted Dennis Kelly at right tackle. The offensive line missed Peters. The Eagles allowed six sacks and could open space for only 68 rushing yards. "I got rolled up," Peters said. "I thought I could come back. And then when I started putting pressure on it, it was just too weak to try to go out there.

DETROIT - To pull a weed and make sure it dies, you have to get to the root. The Eagles are a garden full of wild plants. You don't succumb to the struggling Lions, 45-14, four days after falling to the mediocre Buccaneers, 45-17, without having several issues with your team. The questions, then, for the owner of that team are: Do you look at your garden and think that some Weed B Gon will do the trick, or do you come to the conclusion that the soil needs to be turned over and it's time to start anew?

JASON PETERS started at left tackle Sunday and seemed to play reasonably well. I'll take "Things that seemed really important around 1 p.m. Sunday that were forgotten by sundown" for $600, Alex. The mystery of Peters' back didn't get much clearer, but even though he sat out the final minutes of the Eagles' blowout loss to Tampa Bay, Peters said he felt fine after the game. Presumably he is a go for Thursday at Detroit. Really, the Eagles could have played Bernadette Peters at left tackle Sunday.
