Patriots present tough task for Cardinals

The Cardinals will host the New England Patriots on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Phoenix Stadium. Arizona will come into the win after an emotional win last week against the Seattle Seahawks. The game came down to the final play when rookie Seahawk QB Russell Wilson passed a ball that was well defended and knocked away from Braylon Edwards of Seattle. This sealed the game for Arizona who ended the game with a different Quarterback from who they started.

The Cardinals may just start Kevin Kolb again Sunday after an injury to Skelton kept him from the rest of Sunday’s game. Kolb was able to come into the game and deliver a touchdown pass to give the team a lead. Both sides of the ball for Arizona looked effective, but they will need an awful lot more to defeat a strong Patriot team. The team just barely got over 250 yards of total offense against the Seahawks, but still managed 20 points.

 

The Patriots did what the Patriots do Sunday as they scored 34 against the Titans. They were able to do so by gaining nearly 400 yards of offense. Surprisingly, 162 of these yards came from the ground, which is something that past Patriot teams have not been able to do while relying heavily on the arm of Tom Brady. This fact spells even more trouble for Arizona and should be scary for the NFL as a whole to think about.
