Arizona coach Bruce Arians says there "were obviously very many problems" with the officiating in the Cardinals' 24-21 loss at Philadelphia and he has sent video of "about 15" plays to the NFL for review.

Of particular concern were three plays near the end of the game.

One was a holding call on safety Tyrann Mathieu that negated Patrick Peterson's interception. Another was a holding call on linebacker Matt Shaughnessy on the Eagles' final possession. A third was a no-call when the Cardinals felt there was pass interference on a fourth-down incompletion to Michael Floyd the last time Arizona had the ball.

Arians says the calls possibly could cost his team a spot in the playoffs but he wants the Cardinals to abandon talk about officiating and concentrate on next Sunday's game against St. Louis.
