FOXBOROUGH, Mass.- Backup quarterback Kevin Kolb threw for one touchdown and ran for another, Stephen Gostkowski missed a potential winning field goal in the final seconds, and the Arizona Cardinals upset the New England Patriots 20-18 on Sunday.
The Patriots took over when Vince Wilfork recovered a fumble at the Cardinals 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 six seconds remaining.
But Gostkowski, who had made his other four field goal attempts, sent a 42-yard try wide to the left.
The Cardinals (2-0) won behind Kolb, filling in for John Skelton, who missed the game with a sprained right ankle.
The Patriots (1-1) lost tight end Aaron Hernandez to an ankle injury in the first quarter.
