Cardinals Vs. Eagles Recap By The Numbers: Larry Fitzgerald, John Skelton Shine In Upset Win

The Arizona Cardinals managed to score a huge upset win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, thanks to some surprising performances. Let's take a look at some of the numbers from Arizona's thrilling, come-from-behind victory.

Besides snaring the most exciting and crucial catch of the season for the Cardinals, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had a huge game. He finished the game with 146 yards on seven catches, with a long of 42 and two touchdowns.

The other offensive star for Arizona was quarterback John Skelton, who started his fourth game of the season. Regular starting quarterback Kevin Kolb was out for the game due to turf toe. Skelton was more than up to the task on Sunday, as he finished the game 21-for-40 with 315 passing yards, 15 rushing yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Two of the TD passes were to Fitzgerald. The third was a five yard pass to Early Doucet with less than 2:00 left in the game to put the Cardinals on top for good.

Despite nagging injuries that have been bothering him for weeks, running back Beanie Wells managed to lead Arizona rushers with 62 yards on 23 carries. On the defensive side, both Daryl Washington and Paris Lenon picked up sacks on Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick.
