Facing an Arizona Cardinals team that has struggled mightily against opposing tight ends all season long, Philadelphia Eagles tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek took advantage Sunday. The two combined for all three Eagles touchdowns in Philadelphia's 24-21 victory over the Cardinals Sunday.
Ertz led the way, with five catches for 68 yards and two scores, tripling his career total. Celek, meanwhile, had four catches for only 29 yards, but also scored, his fourth of the season.
Meanwhile, the Eagles' star wide receiver, DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper, didn't do nearly as much in the game. Jackson caught four passes for 29 yards, while Cooper gained 48 yards on three receptions.
Fantasy impact: Facing the Arizona Cardinals' pass defense is unlike facing any other defense in the league; they allow the sixth-fewest points to wide receivers, but they allow far and away the most points to tight ends. It isn't even close -- the Cardinals allow 13.7 points per game to tight ends, while the Jacksonville Jaguars are the second-worst, allowing 10.2 points a game.
In other words, the Eagles -- and fantasy owners -- should draw any long-range conclusions about Ertz, Celek, Jackson, or Cooper from this game. Odds are things will go back to normal in Week 14.
