NFL Predictions: Arizona Cardinals vs. Indianapolis Colts 9/17/17

"Our focus is on preparation and getting better as a football team and making the correction from last week and focus on fundamentals, technique and taking care of the football".

"I've played long enough to know wins - you've got to enjoy", Palmer said. Jaron Brown had four receptions for 74 yards and Larry Fitzgerald was quiet with only 21 yards on three receptions. Carson Palmer threw for 269 yards, a touchdown and 3 interceptions on 27 of 48 passing. Tolzien offers no value to the team and the Colts would be pretty much giving up on the season if they kept him as the starter. The former teammates in New England also have something else in common: They are the league's only active players still around from the 1990s.

After a disastrous performance in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams in which Tolzien finished with a 33.8 passer rating and two pick-sixes, the Colts were forced to re-consider their quarterback situation.

But they got the win. And Palmer thought he had done it again when he positioned Dawson for a 42-yarder as time expired.

The Indy defense was really strong through the first two and a half quarters on Sunday.

Veteran teams know how to take advantage of the opponent's mistakes, and that's exactly what the Cardinals did to the Colts. Brissett wound up 20 of 37 with 216 yards and the one interception.

It was a tough pill to swallow today, but the Colts showed a lot of promise today and certainly looked leaps and bounds better than last week.

He's spent two weeks here. Placekicker Adam Vinatieri was successful on both of his field goal attempts, hitting from 46 and 29 yards out. It can't be Tolzien, not unless Pagano wants to spot the Cardinals a seven-point lead after the Colts' first offensive drive.

Pagano was the Colts' head coach, even with Arians posting a 9-3 record in Pagano's absence and winning the AP Coach of the Year as Pagano underwent treatment for leukemia. Now, the "Honey Badger" lines up the majority of time at safety for the Cardinals.

But Arians made no secret of the fact his trip to Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday will hold special meaning. David Johnson rushed for just 23 yards before suffering a wrist injury that landed him on the short-term IR. Kerwynn Williams will have to fill in for the time being, but he had just 10 rushing yards on five carries last week. In a game that started off with a Cardinal interception that was quickly taken for a touchdown - it seemed like the game against the Lions was the Cardinals to lose, and lose they did. "He played hard. He made throws".

On top of that, Indianapolis will face a Cards defense in Week 2 that ranked fourth against the pass last season. Do you think Bruce Arians is an idiot? NFL.com's Ian Rapoport was first to report the news.
