GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Eagles are going to need a major comeback in the second half if they want to stay undefeated.

Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb burned his former team with two touchdown passes to help the Cardinals take a 24-0 halftime lead Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Kolb, who was traded to the Cardinals last year after a four-year stint with the Eagles, threw an 8-yard touchdown to wide receiver Michael Floyd, then found wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald for a 37-yard TD.

Kolb completed 13 of 18 passes for 177 yards and two TDs in the first half.

Meanwhile, the Eagles committed two turnovers via fumbles by punt returner Damaris Johnson and quarterback Michael Vick to run their season total to 11 in two and a half games.

The Eagles' offense struggled to get into a rhythm for most of the firstl half. Cards linebacker Daryl Washington notched two sacks in the first half. Eagles tackle Demetress Bell, starting in place of injured King Dunlap, had two first-half penalties.

They had a chance to score when they reached the 1-yard line late in the first half, but Vick fumbled on a vicioius hit by Cards safety Kerry Rhodes. Safety James Sanders scooped it up and ran 93 yards for a touchdown as time ran out.
