TEMPE, Ariz. - Kevin Kolb is back, and he led the resurgent Arizona Cardinals to their biggest win of the season. After a rusty start, Kolb hit his stride after halftime in Arizona's 19-13 overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The Cardinals had gone 3-1 in Kolb's absence, but two of those wins came - barely - against NFC West bottom feeder St. Louis and the other over the reeling Philadelphia Eagles. Kolb was out to show that his return would not slow the team's momentum. The offense sputtered, and Kolb missed some potentially big plays, as Arizona fell behind 10-3 at the half, but Kolb was 7 for 11 for 203 yards after that, capped by the 52-yard swing pass play to LaRod Stephens-Howling for the game winner.
