Kevin Kolb will start for the injured John Skelton in the Arizona Cardinals Week 2 game against the New England Patriots.
The veteran Kolb, who lost his starting job to Skelton in the final week of the preseason, stepped in during Skelton's fourth quarter absence and led the Cardinals to a win by completing 6-of-8 passes for 66 yards and a touchdown pass to wide receiver Andre Roberts.
The Cardinals are 14-point underdogs in Sunday's game, so Kolb will have his work cut out for him.
