Skelton took over and led the Cardinals on a long touchdown drive in the second quarter. He finished 4-of-6 passing for 72 yards before being replaced by Richard Bartel. If Kolb is forced to miss any amount of time -- and rib injuries have been known to linger -- the door is wide open for Skelton to win the job.
