Kolb threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns, James Sanders returned one of Vick's two first-half fumbles 93 yards for a touchdown and the Cardinals ran over the Eagles 27-6 on Sunday for their best start in 38 years.

The Cardinals also have won seven straight home games, the second-longest streak in franchise history.

Philadelphia (2-1) became the first NFL team to open a sea...
