John Skelton completed 22 of 40 passes for 271 yards with 1 TD pass and 1 INT. He also carried the ball 5 times for 19 yards (3.8 ypc). LaRod...
Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb and RB Beanie Wells were on the team's injury list all season long and more updates.
Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald made the spectacular catches that led to the Cardinals' overtime victory over Seattle despite a bruised lung.
