The memory of the Cardinals flying into Baltimore a few weeks ago and nearly knocking off the Ravens is still fresh to me, so I must admit my perspective of the 2-6 team from Arizona coming into Philly this weekend is deeply biased. All I know for sure about the Cardinals as a threat to the Eagles' chance to rebound to a 4-5 record on Sunday is: Kevin Kolb will not be pitching for Arizona (turf toe), and rookie Patrick Peterson has emerged as a bona fide punt return threat on special teams.Patrick Peterson is contributing as a DB in the nickel packages, but has not been nearly as spectacular there...where he's been lighting it up is on the return team. He's already taken 3 to the house this year. To get a better look at the Cardinals, I turned to Jess Root, a sportsblogger who writes for Revenge of the Birds.com and also General Arizona Cardinal News..."The Cardinals will head in to Philly this week and face one of the most talented teams on paper, with some incred...

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against his former team.
Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL.com's Jason LaCanfora detailed on Tuesday that Kolb will likely miss this weekend's game versus the Philadelphia Eagles due to his turf toe injury.
Kolb was hurt in the early stages of last week's 30-27 loss to the Baltimore...
The St. Louis Rams' defense had its best day of the season last weekend. After Patrick Peterson's 99-yard punt return in overtime at Arizona, it was lost in the shuffle.
The Rams defense held the Cardinals to 262 total yards in the 19-13 loss. The Cardinals converted just two of their 10 third-down plays.
Two weeks ago in a 31-21 victory over New Orleans, the Rams gave...
We look back on a previous article, update the numbers, and discuss whether it was the right move for the Arizona Cardinals to trade what they did for Kevin Kolb.
After a day to mull it over, Steve Spagnuolo's answer was the same: The St. Louis Rams coach would have punted the ball to Patrick Peterson in the shadow of the Arizona Cardinals goal posts, and taken his chances again.
Most Mondays have been tough for the Rams, who are 1-7 at the midpoint of the season, but usually because they've been trying to move past a blowout. This...
It's hard to find a winner yet in the Cardinals trade with the Eagles for quarterback Kevin Kolb.
It's too early to declare a winner in the trade but quarterback Kevin Kolb has yet to live up to expectations.
Each week I try to sit down with a blogger from the opposing team and take a closer look at the upcoming matchup for the week. This time around, I was lucky enough to speak with Scott Allen of RaisingZona.com about the upcoming game with the Cardinals.
Right off the bat I have to ask him about his thoughts on Kevin Kolb. I also ask him about how rookie Patrick Peterson has played...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb likely won’t play this Sunday against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Kolb still hasn’t been able to get on the practice field this week because of a toe injury. John Skelton will start for the second straight week in his absence. Skelton had a [...]
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka and Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson have been honored as the NFC's top players for Week 9 of the NFL season.
There are no more bye weeks for NFL teams so there's a lot of games to bet on in Week 10.The NFL has a Thursday night game with the Chargers(-7) at home against the Raiders. The total is 48.I expected the total to be high since both teams had high-scoring games last Sunday. What bettors must take into account is that the scores last week wouldn't have been so high if not...
