The Arizona Cardinals will start quarterback Kevin Kolb this Sunday against the New England Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kolb made his 2012 debut last week after John Skelton left the game with an ankle sprain. Kolb passed 6-for-8 for 66 yards, tossing the game-winning touchdown to Andre Roberts with five minutes left in the game to help Arizona win, 20-16.

A sixth-year player out of the University of Houston, Kolb had a lackluster performance in nine games for Arizona last season, tossing nine touchdowns along with eight interceptions. His season was shortened due to injuries. He has a career 77.5 passer rating, along with 4,103 yards passing and 21 touchdowns thrown.
