The Arizona Cardinals are coming off a road victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-14. Carson Palmer went his first full game without an interception and threw two touchdowns. He has Six touchdowns and two interceptions over his last three games. This week, they face the Indianapolis Colts at home. It is head coach Bruce Arians first game against the team he led to a 9-3 record last season in Colts head coach Chuck Pagano’s absence.
The Colts are coming off a Thursday Night Football victory over the Tennessee Titans, so they have had 10 days off since last playing. Is it an advantage? We’ll see. I can tell you this is the second straight opponent the Cards have faced that had their previous game against the Titans. Does that help? Who knows. This game is at home though. The last time these two teams played Peyton Manning was still the Colts quarterback and Kurt Warner was still the Cards quarterback. The Colts won 31-10 on Sunday Night Football in Glendale.
