The Arizona Cardinals take on the Tennessee Titans down in Music City on Thursday, with the starters on both sides of the ball slated to see extended playing time in this second-to-last matchup before the start of the regular season.
This game will be a showcase of quarterback competition for Arizona as anointed starter John Skelton will get the ball to start the game, though Kevin Kolb will likely see a number of reps on the night as well. Skelton went 3-3 with a touchdown during his only drive against the Oakland Raiders last week. Kolb on the other hand was 3-6 for for 22 yards while taking three sacks as the starter against Oakland. We'll see how Skelton holds up with his first of protracted action.
