Eagles Vs. Cardinals Game Recap: Kevin Kolb Leads Cardinals Past Eagles, 27-6

The Arizona Cardinals defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-6, on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The Arizona Cardinals built a 24-0 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles by halftime and would not need any more points to get the victory. The Cardinals did add a field goal in the fourth quarter. The Eagles did not find the scoreboard until the third quarter when they kicked a pair of field goals. Malcom Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald caught touchdown passes from Kevin Kolb in the first half for the Cardinals. Arizona also got a defensive touchdown when Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was sacked and fumbled. The fumble was returned 93 yards for the score by Cardinals safety James Sanders.

Larry Fitzgerald was Kolb's primary target with 9 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was only 17-of-37 passing for 217 yards. He also had 28 rush yards. Although Vick avoided throwing any interceptions, he lost two fumbles.
