Matthew Stafford (TRUST): Stafford started out hot last week, but then faded as the Eagles adjusted to shut down this passing game late on Sunday.

In the first half on Sunday, Stafford was 12-of-18 for 147 yards and both of his touchdowns.

After the break, he then went 9-of-20 for 75 yards.

This Arizona defense is who we thought they were entering this season.

They are the most passive unit in the NFL.
