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.
BEST OF MAXIM
27-year old QB Kevin Kolb was all banged up, which cost him to miss P.T. After watching John Skelton play at QB for the last few weeks, the coaching staff had to be jumping for joy to have Kolb back. He completed 16 of 25 passes (64%) for 247 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs (109.9 QB Rating) in the Cardinals’ 19-13 win in O.T. against the Cowboys yesterday. Kolb has now played...

Kolb is back after missing the last four games with his turf toe injury, but fantasy owners should not be excited as he carries a measly 77.8 efficiency rating with just eight touchdown passes over seven starts.
The Cardinals are going nowhere fast. Their season was over not long after it started. Big Free Agent offseason signing QB Kevin Kolb took over the starting QB spot with great expectations but did not play well in the first few weeks of the season before getting hurt. He will make his return versus the Cowboys who he knows well from his time with the Eagles.
1. Kevin Kolb is not good, and not good for Larry Fitzgerald
It looks safe to say that Kevin Kolb is not the franchise quarterback the Cardinals hoped for when they traded for him in the offseason. There must be at least 20 better quarterbacks this year.
Despite facing a schedule that has combined to allow 130 passing touchdowns while forcing just 90 interceptions, Kolb has just...

Over the Arizona Cardinals' last 16 games, dating back to Week 14 last season, John Skelton and Kevin Kolb have each drawn eight starts. Skelton has been mostly miserable, completing just 49.0 percent of his passes, gaining only 5.8 yards per attempt, tossing six touchdown passes and nine interceptions. Kolb hasn't exactly put on a clinic, either, but he's been demonstrably...
