Schefter: QB Kolb to start against Patriots

The Arizona Cardinals have refused to officially name a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. But ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Arizona's choice will be backup Kevin Kolb.

John Skelton beat out Kolb in the preseason, but injured his ankle in Week 1. That paved the way for Kolb to reportedly start Sunday in the Patriots' home opener at Gillette Stadium.

My take is either quarterback would be easy prey for the Patriots. But things just got a little easier for New England. Kolb is a major bust, and the Cardinals were more confident in Skelton, which is why he won the job in Week 1.

New England's defense is playing much better than last season, and I'm expecting another good performance in Week 2. The Patriots have won their past 10 home openers, according to ESPN Stats and Info. It would be a major surprise if the Patriots don't extend that streak to 11 wins.
