The Kevin Kolb reunion commences on Sunday afternoon as his Arizona Cardinals host his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Kolb has had a miserable time since being traded to the Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick. Kolb needed an injury to current starter, John Skelton, in order to earn a starting role this season.
Kolb took over for an injured Skelton during the second half of the first game against the Seattle Seahawks. He led his Cardinals to a narrow victory, only to do the same thing the following week against the Patriots.
Since Donovan McNabb was traded to the Redskins and Kevin Kolb was named the full-time starter for the Eagles in 2010, nothing has gone right for Kolb. It’s good to see him having some success, even though he has been more of a game manager than anything else.
This will be a tough matchup for the Eagles. Arizona has a fierce defense and a special teams unit that made big play after big play last season. It’s never easy for an East-Coast team to win on the road against a West-Coast team. This game will answer a lot of questions for both teams. Is Arizona a legitimate contender in the NFC West? Can the Eagles actually limit their turnovers for once?
Here are 10 keys for a Eagles victory on Sunday.
