Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:
Who picked this as one of the games of the week? Well, it is. The Cardinals went to New England and won, which says a lot. That defense is impressive. The Eagles have won two games while turning it over nine times. They're either good to overcome them or lucky. Kevin Kolb faces his former team with a chance to get the Cardinals to 3-0. I say he does.
