Kevin Kolb, Cardinals roll over Eagles, move to 3-0

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Kevin Kolb threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns, and James Sanders returned one of Michael Vick's two fumbles 93 yards for a touchdown as the Arizona Cardinals ran over the Philadelphia Eagles 27-6 on Sunday for their best start in 38 years.

Kolb was sharp, hitting 17 of 24 passes, and Arizona (3-0) sacked Vick five times for its best start since 1974, more than a dozen years before the team moved to the desert. The Cardinals also have won seven consecutive home games, the second-longest streak in franchise history.

Philadelphia (2-1) became the first NFL team to open a season with two one-point wins. The Eagles didn't give themselves a chance to rally for another victory, picked apart by the quarterback they cast away and hounded by the Cardinals' attacking defense.

The Eaglesm, who had the NFL's best offense in the first two games, had three turnovers, running their season total to 12.
