TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals are looking at quarterback Kevin Kolb's feet in order to fix what is wrong with his arm. That sounds like coaching's version of acupuncture, but coaches believe Kolb's arm will follow wherever his feet lead. The problem is evident. Statistically, Kolb has regressed over the past three weeks. In the first three games, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes; in the past three, 53.6 percent. In the past two games, he's missed open receivers for big plays, possibly touchdowns.

With Terrell Suggs and Jarret Johnson rightfully starting at outside linebacker, playing time is a premium for Paul Kruger. Which is why it's encouraging for the Ravens and their fans that Kruger registered the first two-sack game of his career in Sunday's 30-27 win against the Arizona Cardinals. Kruger, a second-round pick last season, took down quarterback Kevin Kolb in the first and fourth quarters and has now posted three sacks in the team's last two contests. “The more plays you can make, the more special the game's going to be for you personally if you win the game,” Kruger said.

Kolb deserves a chance David Teel Newport News You don't trade your Pro Bowl quarterback unless you're sold on his replacement. And you don't bail on that replacement 30 minutes into the season, no matter how inept he was, no matter how electric his backup. Kevin Kolb's first-half struggles Sunday probably had Eagles fans pining for Donovan McNabb, shipped to the Redskins during the offseason. And when a concussion sidelined Kolb, those fans reveled as Vick's skittish arm and unparalleled feet nearly rallied Philadelphia past the Packers.

Six days after a frustrating loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Ravens host the Arizona Cardinals and get a chance to put that wreck in their rearview mirrors. The 1-5 Cardinals, who have lost five straight, have arrived in slushy Baltimore from sunny Arizona hoping to get their season headed in the right direction. Here are five storylines I'll be watching from the cozy press box at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday: 1. The Ravens strike back: The Ravens have had few embarrassing losses in the John Harbaugh era, and Monday night's 12-7 loss to the Jaguars was one of them . But they usually respond with resounding wins the following week.

So far, so good for Donovan McNabb and the Redskins. McNabb, traded to Washington by the NFC East rival Eagles in the offseason, completed 5 of 8 passes for 58 yards and a touchdown Friday night in a 42-17 win over the Bills in Landover, Md. in the exhibition opener. On the Redskins' second possession, McNabb hit Anthony Armstrong for a 4-yard touchdown on third down as Armstrong barely stretched the ball over the line. "It was an exciting time," said McNabb, who played two series.

PHILADELPHIA — We begin with the disclaimer that no one should feel sorry for Kevin Kolb and his current predicament. He was paid a Wilt-tall stack of spendable money in a signing bonus last year by the Eagles, more than $10 million. There will be no beef-and-beers held on his behalf. You can say that and still recognize the man's unique journey. In the last 13 months, Kolb has gone from backup to starter to backup to bereft, all without moving a step. He is the same person and the same player.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will experience a "fun" first on Thursday night: He has never played an NFL game at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, which is a short car ride from his hometown, Audubon, N.J. Flacco has played the Eagles once in career, a 36-7 Ravens win in Baltimore back in 2008. He tossed a pair of touchdowns against the Eagles, who memorably pulled Donovan McNabb for Kevin Kolb in that game. For the first time Thursday, Flacco will be exposed to the rowdy fans from Philadelphia, though they will probably be a little less -- I'll say enthusiastic, but you can say something else -- since it's just a preseason game.

On Oct. 3, the Redskins visit the Eagles. It promises to be one of the most fascinating games of this NFL season. The mere sight of Donovan McNabb in a Redskins uniform is strange enough, but to see him walk onto the field as a visitor in Philadelphia? That will be bizarre. The Eagles only can hope they made the right move, trading McNabb to a division rival and entrusting the starting quarterback job to largely untested Kevin Kolb. A somewhat similar move worked out for the Patriots several years ago, when they sent Drew Bledsoe to the Bills and kept Tom Brady (although Brady was coming off a Super Bowl victory)

That includes the two games against the Cincinnati Bengals and their rookie signal-caller Andy Dalton , the game against the Curtis Painter -led Indianapolis Colts and Monday night's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert .

Washington 17, Philadelphia 12 Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Donovan McNabb's much-anticipated return was a triumphant one, as the former franchise quarterback for the Eagles led the Washington Redskins in a 17-12 victory over Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field. McNabb, who spent the previous 11 seasons quarterbacking the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance, played against his former squad for the first time in his career. Traded in the offseason, McNabb returned to his old grounds to a rousing ovation.

The only thing injured on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb yesterday was his pride, and his benching might eventually cost coach Andy Reid his job. Quarterbacks and head coaches are often tied together when it comes to job security, and when one goes, the other often shortly follows. Just ask former Ravens coach Brian Billick and Kyle Boller. Reid benched his star quarterback after a miserable first half in which McNabb completed just 8 of 18 passes for 59 yards and had two interceptions and a quarterback rating of 13.2.

The Ravens won't have a competition at starting quarterback again this season, but there will be one for the backup job. John Beck has agreed in principle on a one-year contract and will compete with Troy Smith to be the Ravens' No. 2 quarterback, according to an NFL source. Beck will be reunited with Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who was coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2007, when they drafted the Brigham Young standout in the second round. After Cameron was fired, Beck never clicked with the Bill Parcells regime and was released by the Dolphins on Wednesday, just five days after they drafted West Virginia's Pat White in the second round.
