Patriots lose nail-biter as kick sails wide
The Patriots took over when Vince Wilfork recovered a fumble by Ryan Williams at the Arizona 30-yard line with 1:01 left. A 30-yard run into the end zone by Danny Woodhead was nullified by a holding penalty against Rob Gronkowski. New England then moved to the 24 before Tom Brady spiked the ball to stop the clock with 6 seconds remaining.
But Gostkowski, who had made his other four field-goal attempts, sent a 42-yard try wide to the left.
The Cardinals won behind Kolb, who filled in for an injured John Skelton. He overcame a shaky start, then threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts 6 minutes into the third quarter after a blocked punt. Kolb also ran for a 5-yard score on the third play of the fourth as the Cardinals took a 20-9 lead.
