Cards benefit from no-call

Not to be an NFC East homer, but Cardinals cornerback Ralph Brown was hanging all over Jason Avant on that third-down play a few moments ago. He had him by the back of the jersey well before the pass from Donovan McNabb arrived. It should've been a defensive holding penalty, but nothing was called.

The Eagles were forced to settle for the field goal. And by the way, if the Eagles come back to win this game, remember Antonio Smith's body slam of Brian Westbrook. Just a really dumb play.

It's hard to believe the Cardinals already have 68 yards rushing and they're over 200 yards of total offense. Kurt Warner is picking apart the defense right now. Todd Haley and Ken Whisenhunt are doing a superb job of getting great matchups.
