Before entering the new year, the Philadelphia Eagles will welcome home an old friend.
Former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon makes his return to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals for a New Year's Eve matchup with the Eagles. Gannon spent two seasons with the Eagles before being hired by the Cardinals two days after Philadelphia lost the Super Bowl LVII in February. The messy departure led to tampering charges that were settled with the two teams swapping draft picks.
Gannon and his 3-12 Cardinals head to Philadelphia with the Eagles having just snapped a three-game losing streak with a win over the New York Giants to put them on the brink of winning the NFC East title.

The 11-4 Eagles could secure the division title as early as Sunday if they get some help from the Detroit Lions, who play the 10-5 Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night. With a Dallas loss and Philly win, the Eagles would finish atop the NFC East for the second consecutive season.
The Eagles also remain in the mix for the top seed in the NFC, sitting in a three-way tie for best record with the San Francisco 49ers and Lions.
But the team has struggled to fill Gannon's void, demoting defensive coordinator Sean Desai and turning over play-calling duties to Matt Patricia. The Eagles defense will now face a Cardinals team that has dropped 10 of 11 road games but has gone 2-4 overall since quarterback Kyler Murray has returned.
