After Jay Feely’s 61-yard field goal to tie it up, the two teams went to overtime and that’s when Skelton threw the pick.“You know we just basically had almost like a scissors route outside,” said Skelton. “And the backside safety, which you almost never take into account, came back across and picked it. The guy made a good play.”After the game Skelton didn’t seem too interested in breaking down his thoughts and feelings about the game or more importantly his performance.“Yeah, that was quite a roller coaster of emotions those last few endings to the game there, but whatever,” said Skelton.After the interception, the Bills were in field goal position at the Cardinals’ six-yard line and the game was pretty much over from there. Buffalo went on to win 19-16, snapping the Cardinals’ eight-game home win streak. Skelton finished 2-for-10 for 45 yards, one interception and a 6.2 passer rating. From a health standpoint, Skelton said he felt great in his first game back. You can likely expect him to remain the starter after hearing that Kolb is dealing with a chest and rib injury and going for x-rays after the game. Cardinals quarterback John Skelton has been sitting on the sideline since Week 1, waiting for his chance to step back on the field and make his mark. He left the opening weekend game against Seattle with a low-ankle sprain and has yet to regain his starting spot. Skelton got that chance on Sunday against the Bills when Kevin Kolb left the game late in the fourth quarter after taking a hit to the chest. Kolb has been sacked 22 times in the last three games, and Skelton didn’t seem surprised by Kolb’s injury. Comments   Share   The Cardinals hit the road to face the Vikings in Minnesota next Sunday.
