The headline story of today’s game should have been the return of Kevin Kolb to Lincoln Field, which he once called home. Unfortunately, due to a turf toe injury, it is questionable whether Kolb or backup quarterback John Skelton will start.
The Cardinals are hoping to ride the momentum of their first win since Week 1. The 99-yard punt return for an overtime touchdown was one of the few bright points in a season that has thus far been a giant disappointment for the Cardinals.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles have faced struggles of their own this season. Despite the star-studded roster, the Eagles have lacked consistency on both sides of the ball and have failed to really find their stride in the first half of the season. To keep their diminishing playoff hopes alive, the Eagles must win today.
Stay tuned as I live blog thoughts, highlights, scores, and analysis from today’s game.
FINAL score: Cardinals 21 and Eagles 17.
