GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It's awfully quiet here at University of Phoenix Stadium, where Arizona is struggling to maintain its lead against a Philadelphia team that is getting after quarterback Kurt Warner.

With 3:42 left in the third quarter, the Eagles have outgained the Cardinals 104 yards to 1. Arizona's most recent possession went like this: Incomplete pass, incomplete pass, sack, punt.

This is especially unusual for the Cardinals, who were the NFL's highest-scoring team in the third quarter during the regular season. But Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson has found a blitz combination that is getting to Warner.

Cardinals fans are trying to muster enthusiasm, but it's clear that many people are concerned about an Eagles comeback. Stay tuned.
