We have reached week two the NFL season and this is where teams will start to see if they are for real.
Two 0-1 teams will match up on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Arizona Cardinals make the trip to Indianapolis to take on the Colts.
The Colts have won five of the last six games played between the two teams. The one game that the Cardinals won though was the last one.
In 2013 the Cardinals came out ahead by a final score of 40-11.
The Arizona Cardinals got off to a fast start in the first game against the Detroit Lions and they looked like a team that had gotten some of the explosive offense back from a few years ago.
But in the second half of the game they looked old, and the offense couldn’t get anything going and the defense couldn’t slow down anything and it led to a 35-23 defeat.
Carson Palmer really struggled and it led to a lot of the struggles at the offense end. He threw for 269 yards and one touchdown.
He also threw three interceptions which all turned out to be huge swing points in the game.
One thing to watch going into this game is running back David Johnson and his status for this week. He is day-to-day with an injured wrist and no one really knows his status for this game.
If he isn’t able to go that is a huge loss for the Cardinals as Johnson is a do it all running back for the team.
The defense also needs to be better in this game. They gave up too many big plays for Stafford in the second half and they can’t let whoever gets the start for the Colts have a big name.
They need to do a better job of creating turnovers and use that to create offense.
On the other side of this match up is the Indianapolis Colts who look like if they don’t have Andrew Luck for a while they could end with the worst record in the NFL.
They played the Los Angeles Rams who are a team that don’t have high expectations for this year, but they made Jared Goff look like Tom Brady. They allowed Goff to throw for over three yards and one touchdown.
The Colts defense could not slow down the Rams at all and they were allowed to just march up and down the field.
But as bad as the defense was the offense was even a bigger problem. Scott Tolzien the starting quarterback was a disaster from the opening drive.
He was 9-18 for 128 yards and two interceptions and zero touchdowns. He was bench for Jacoby Brissett who threw for 51 yards including one 50 yard pass.
They haven’t announced who is going to be the starting quarterback for this game, but whoever it is needs to be a lot better.
The biggest issue is they can’t turn the ball over. They need to get a rhythm early, and not make big mistakes.
