REID, EAGLES FALL TO CARDINALS

After becoming the first team in the history of the NFL to start a season with a pair of one-point victories, the Philadelphia Eagles — coached by former Glendale Community College football player Andy Reid — suffered a 27-6 road loss Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Philadelphia, which entered the contest with the league's best offense, trailed, 24-0, at halftime. The Eagles committed three turnovers to raise their season total to 12.

“They played better than we did, clearly better,” Reid told the Associated Press. “They coached better, they played better and that is my responsibility. I didn't have my football team ready to play and they did.”

Philadelphia will next meet the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants at home at 5:20 p.m. PDT Sunday.
