Jacoby Brissett reportedly going to start for Colts in Week 2

Arizona Cardinals at Indianapolis Colts - 9/17/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Colts came out on fire as they tried to avenge their Week 1 loss to the Rams and held a 10-0 lead after the first quarter.

The rest of the questionable Cardinals will be game-time decisions, including tight end Jermaine Gresham and inside linebacker Deone Bucannon, Arians said. Brissett is a sharp guy, sharp enough to know the First Rule of Quarterbacking: Throw it to the guys in your own uniform. As a third-string quarterback, he went 1-1 in games he started, finishing with a quarterback rating of 80.7. He was also sacked four times. Two snaps later, they were celebrating in the end zone. In his five seasons to date, Luck has nearly 20,000 passing yards to his name, three pro-bowl appearances and was the 2014 passing touchdown leader.

"They made some plays", Pagano said. Get $60 worth of FREE premium member picks.

Arians said he doesn't "feel great" about the left side of Arizona's offensive line, which will feature two new starters this weekend.

This deal makes it hard for them to trade him away.

Indeed, rookies Quincy Wilson, Nate Hairston and Malik Hooker each had their big moments.

Meanwhile, Arizona just needs to tighten up.

"It was just a bad play all the way around", Brissett said. If the Cardinals want to save their season they better figure out a way to change up their offense.

For the Colts, who got embarrassed in their season opener by the Rams 46-9, it doesn't help that franchise quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) does not appear ready to return anytime soon. The majority of the second half we did that.

There also were several missed opportunities in the final period. After that, Indianapolis (0-2) managed just one more sustained drive - which got them a field goal - and had only 96 yards on nine other possessions.

The Colts had only 225 yards of total offense and were 0-of-10 on third down. Dawson booted a 40-yard field goal to tie the game at 13 with 3:28.

But Dawson pushed the kick wide right after the Colts called timeout.

Jacoby Brissett would set the tone for the Colts offense early. "I've gotta make better plays down the stretch". "I don't think any of us played well for the first three quarters".

- For a Cardinal team that led the league in sacks past year, it sure seemed like the Defense couldn't get to Stafford - as he easily picked apart the Cardinal secondary - it seemed he was never really hurried to get rid of the football.

Indianapolis fell well short of that last week in Los Angeles, surrendering 306 passing yards and 30 offensive points to a Rams unit that finished 32nd in the National Football League in scoring a year ago.

The key for Brissett has been to continue learning and mastering the Colts' playbook heading into today's game.

Mathieu played more cornerback while he was at LSU. There's no point in not seeing what Brissett can do with the reigns, and go from there. Indianapolisis 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 week 2 matchups. We lost, so we've got to find a way to get a win. It ain't about last week we get blown out and this week we lose by 3. It's a long season.
