The Arizona Cardinals travel east to face the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend in a game that reunites two-offseason trade partners (Kevin Kolb was traded to the Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2012 second-round pick). Kolb could miss this game in his first return to Philly since the trade with a turf toe injury, and if he does John Skelton will start in his place.
The Cardinals recorded a much-needed 19-13 victory last week in overtime against the St. Louis Rams on a 99-yard punt return by Patrick Petterson. Arizona can build on that momentum this week against a struggling Eagles squad that lost 30-23 at home to the Chicago Bears last week.
