Colts Fall To Arizona In Heartbreaking Fashion

"Hopefully the runs that I had showed them that I still got the burst, and I can still handle a full workload". But we DO know it's virtually impossible for him to perform more poorly than Tolzien, who finished the Rams game with a 33.8 quarterback rating.

Though ugly, the ArizonaCardinals were victorious against the Indianapolis Colts 16-13 in overtime this Sunday. "Dumb decision. Can't make those type of plays, especially down the stretch when we need it the most". Arizona had two new offensive line starters - LT John Wetzel and LG Alex Boone replacing D.J. Humphries and Mike Iupati, respectively.

In an effort to salvage the year before it becomes too late, the Colts have decided to make a change at quarterback.

That single play spoiled what was an otherwise promising start for Indy's newest quarterback.

Brissett, acquired from the New England Patriots on September 2, will start the Week 2 home game, according to multiple reports.

The Colts lost 46-9 in their season opener to the Rams, while the Cardinals also lost their first game 35-23 against the Lions.

Both teams have already been decimated by injuries this season. The Colts had to settle for the field goal.

You only need to look at Wilson’s stat line to see just how effective he is at the quarterback position . With Russell Wilson at quarterback, anything is possible.

"You can't go 0 for 10 on third down". Defensively, a Justin Bethel pick-six to open the scoring and a sack from Chandler Jones highlighted a frustrating performance from the Cardinals' defense, allowing 367 yards of total offense while giving up 20 unanswered points in the 4th quarter en route to the loss. He and Jack Doyle would develop great team chemistry, as Doyle would catch eight passes for 79 yards.

Pagano wouldn't say how limited the play-calling was given the circumstances, but Arizona's defense clearly adapted to what Brissett was doing.

"I think it's really important because it gets people's spirits back up after you've been inside for so long and so afraid", Welsh said. "It's a resilient bunch". A pair of personal fouls gave the Cardinals an advantage in field position late in regulation, and the overtime pick from Brissett in Colt territory made the game-winning field goal easy for Dawson.

On the plus side, the young secondary was more than up to the task of controlling 37-year-old Carson Palmer.

- The Cardinals had a third-and-1 on the drive that ended up being Nelson's 45-yard TD catch.

Arizona almost turned that into victory, setting up a 42-yard field goal attempt as time expired.

Scott Tolzien threw a pair of interceptions that were returned for touchdowns - including his first pass attempt - and rookie running back Marlon Mack fumbled deep in his own territory on a play that resulted in a safety.
