The Cardinals will hope to find a hole in the Patriots' stifling run defense in Week 2.
The Cardinals will start Kevin Kolb at quarterback in place of John Skelton, who is expected to be out for two to four weeks after suffering a low ankle sprain in the fourth quarter in Arizona's 20-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Kolb led the Cardinals on a game-winning drive in Skelton's place, completing 6-of-8 passes for 66 yards and a touchdown.
New England heads into the game coming off a 34-13 drubbing of the Tennessee Titans and are favored by 14-points over the Cardinals on Sunday, according to OddsShark. The Patriots held the Titans to just 20 yards rushing in the game, and while it's awfully early, they very well might have one of the tougher run defenses in the NFL.
Sunday's game will begin at 10 a.m. PT, and will be televised on FOX.
