Cardinals vs. Seahawks: Kolb's Mistake Dooms Arizona In 13-10 Loss

NFC West football is certainly hard to watch sometimes, and today's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks was no exception. Despite a dominating defensive display, the Cardinals offense was completely suffocated by the 12th man at CenturyLink Field.

Kevin Kolb's stat line was more Derek Anderson than Kurt Warner, completing 25 of 39 pass attempts for 252 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. The running game was less than effective as the brunt of the carries fell upon rookie Alfonso Smith, who picked up 54 yards on 17 attempts.

This game literally came down to who could make the least mistakes, and trust me - there were a lot of them. From fumbles to interceptions to a plethora of sacks, it was a comedy of errors on the field today.

It's very difficult to see Arizona Cardinals fans approving of this performance against a very beatable Seahawks squad. This game proves that picking up Kevin Kolb was not a cure-all for this team's problems, and time is needed before true improvements can be implemented after a lockout-shortened offseason.

With the loss, Arizona drops to 1-2 on the season. They face off against the New York Giants at home in Glendale on October 2.
