Arizona Cardinals vs Indianapolis Colts
No Peyton Manning, no worry for the Indy Andrew Luck came in last year as well as stole the program as a rookie, while leading the Indianapolis to another playoff appearance. I feel gaining on the roadway still postures a trouble for the second-year QB, as well as Bruce Arians will be well prepared for a QB he trained simply a seasons back.
Arians' experience will certainly aid defensive planner Todd Bowles design a game plan that will expose Luck's problems. Exposing his defects will bring about turn over, so maximizing those turn over and transforming them right into factors will certainly be important.
Rashard Mendenhall running back will certainly aid Cardinals play keep-away by regulating the clock. The Arizona victory thanks to a sturdy protective efficiency.
Indianapolis Colts vs Arizona Cardinals
The Colts head right into the year with high assumptions.
After being placed as a bottom-five team by most experts prior to the last year, the Indy shocked the globe as rookie Andrew Luck QB led the team to 11-5. The team started sluggish, but used Luck and the inspiring Chuck strong activity to a playoff place.
The team won't amaze anyone in season, and deals with a high probability of regression after outplaying their ability level last season. If anybody could lead this lineup back to the playoffs, it's Luck as well as Pagano.
Former Indianapolis offending planner Bruce Arians returns to Indy in this Week 13 showdown, this time as the Arizona head train. Arians has put his mark on the team currently, initiating a field to obtain Carson Palmer from the Oakland , giving a substantial upgrade to the Arizona’s largest weakness: QB.
Despite having the upgrade, the Arizona offense will certainly be hampered by among the worst offending lines in the organization. Preparing Jonathan Cooper in the initial round of the 2012 draft will assist, but the line was straight terrible last year, as well as one guard won't improve the entire unit as a lot as Palmer will certainly require it to in order to survive in Arians' downfield passing offense.
Forecast: Colts 28, Cardinals 23 (6-5).
