Colts plan to start QB Jacoby Brissett

Colts plan to start QB Jacoby Brissett

Of course, that decision was never even an option for Irsay. Chuck Pagano is pleading for his football team to settle for punts on Sunday, instead of trying to force its way into a big play.

These five players need the greatest improvement over week one going into week two in order for the Cardinals to even their record at 1-1.

Pagano's sickness and absence from the team exposed two truths - that Arians is a very good coach and Pagano simply is not.

Now in Indianapolis, with Andrew Luck's return unknown and Scott Tolzien's horrendous Week 1, Brissett's got a chance to go out against the Cardinals and let it rip. The NFL, and life in general, are just kind of amusing that way. He completed a 50-yard pass, a drive that was capped off by a Marlon Mack touchdown. Now, fantasy owners are in a mad scramble (not that anyone cares about your fantasy team) after news that Johnson will be out at least two months after dislocating his wrist in last week's 35-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. I am not sure if the Colts will be able to move the ball much, but Brissett seems to have some promise in that offense.

Spoiler alert: it ain't Chris Johnson. Andre Ellington was supposed to be the feature back in 2014 and got hurt and the Cards used some Kerwynn Williams to muddle through. This trio combined for 348 rushing yards and three touchdowns playing second fiddle to Johnson last season.

Brown, who aggravated quadriceps injury that plagued him in training camp, had four catches for 32 yards in a Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions.

The Indianapolis Colts plan on starting Jacoby Brissett at quarterback for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday. Sunday's game takes place from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana and will air live on FOX. He healed after tearing his ACL for a second time, this time in Arizona. The Colts haven't declared a starter for Sunday.

KEYS TO THE GAME: The Cardinals' offense might go into this game with wide eyes after watching the Los Angeles Rams batter the Colts for 46 points in Week 1.

Palmer's three interceptions were his most since throwing four picks at Buffalo in Week 3 last season, leaving him with a 53.2 quarterback rating, the fourth-worst mark in 54 his games as a Cardinal. Winning early downs, and settling on some comfortable third-down calls, that this offense feels confident in, has to come about after the major struggles in Week One.
