Cardinals QB Skelton lifted despite lead

The SportsXchange

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton was lifted in favor of Ryan Lindley in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The move was surprising considering the Cardinals led 13-3 at the time. However, Skelton struggled by going 2-for-7 passing for only six yards.

Arizona settled on a field goal after Skelton missed a wide open Larry Fitzgerald for a potential touchdown. The Cardinals went three-and-out on their next three possessions.

Lindley was not successful early on as he lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown that made it 13-10.

Atlanta later tied the game with a field goal.
