Will the Eagles Win?

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook's knee could play a big part in Sunday's game.

The Eagles are a win away from dancing their way into the Super Bowl.

So, will they win?

Let's see what the "experts" are writing about the Eagles chances against the Cardinals.

The Daily News sports guys have jumped onto the Eagles bandwagon this week.

After picking against the Birds 7-1 last week, the DN sports writers have completely changed course and are choosing the Eagles to win 7-1 this week.

The only detractor is Marcus Hayes who sees the Cardinals using their offense to pull out a high-scoring game.

Lets hope that unlike last week that the guys at the Daily News are right.

The ESPN football analysts are also leaning towards the Birds 5-3.

It's no surprise that former Eagles Ron Jaworski, Eric Allen and Mike Golic are pulling for the Eagles while historically anti-Philly Merril Hoge is pulling for the Cards.

NBC 10 sports reporter Jade McCarthy thinks the Eagles will win.

"This won't be a rout like Thanksgiving Night... it will be a battle, said McCarthy. 

McCarthy picks the Eagles by three.

Here at NBCPhiladelphia.com we are pulling for the Eagles to win in large part because their defense is hotter than Hansel right now.

The Eagles defense should hold the Cards under 20 points and could be counted on to harass Cardinals QB Kurt Warner into a few interceptions.

Final score 27-17 Eagles.

The Eagles play the Cardinals at 3 p.m. at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Feel free to let everyone know your pick below.
