Game time and television schedule for the final preseason game between the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Denver Broncos face the Arizona Cardinals in the final game of the preaseason, with the Cardinals still searching for answers at quarterback while it's clear the Broncos have certainly found theirs.
Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has not stated just how much Kevin Kolb and John Skelton will play against the Broncos, although it is expected that Kolb will get the start. Both quarterbacks were inconsistent against Tennessee. Kolb went 17-of-22 for 156 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions while Skelton was 4-of-10 for 41 yards and an interception. The Cardinals were also victims of poor offensive line play, which hampered the ability of both quarterbacks to make plays.
Peyton Manning and the first team units for the Denver Broncos looked exceptionally sharp against the San Francisco 49ers, with the Broncos' new quarterback passing for two touchdowns in the loss. Caleb Hanie will likely see extended time under center against the Cardinals as the reserve players fight for the final roster spots in the final game of the preseason.
