Dismal Fourth Quarter Fuels Colts' Collapse To The Cardinals

If Brissett starts, he'll join Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson and Mike Glennon as starting quarterbacks from the Wolfpack. On kickoffs, they did a fairly decent job taking advantage of the Detroit Lions boneheaded attempts at running the ball out of the end zone. WR T.Y. Hilton needs 122 yards receiving to pass Lenny Moore for No. 4 in franchise history. 19/36, 332 yards, big TD pass. New tight end Jim Dray, who Arizona re-signed on Friday will have a role in certain packages on Sunday, Arians said. Kerwynn Williams will make his first career start.

The running game produced just 83 yards without running back David Johnson and the passing game was missing in action for three quarters without John Brown and Jermaine Gresham. Brissett was 17 of 27 for 205 yards, but the Patriots ran just 52 plays that game.

But they got the win. They convert a huge 3rd and 20, and a roughing-the-passer penalty on Jabaal Sheard on top of it gives the Cardinals 15 extra yards. They got some guys free on those.

"The quarterback has to play better", coach Bruce Arians said. "We went with him because he was nice and fresh".

But rookie Malik Hooker had other plans for the Cardinals. CB Justin Bethel has interception returns for touchdowns in each of last two games.

"It's the National Football League, so everything is tough", he said of his rush job as the starting quarterback.

Brissett was acquired by the Colts in a trade with the Patriots on September 2 to improve the team's quarterback depth while Andrew Luck recovers from offseason shoulder surgery.

Against the Colts, their best players came up big when it counted. The Cardinals failed to get much pressure on Brissett until very late in the game. Kicker Phil Dawson's 42-yard field goal at the gun though went wide right and this one was headed for overtime. Jones now has three sacks on the season.

The Cardinals limited the Colts to 266 yards of total offense in 70 snaps, 3.8 yards per play. That drive ended with a field goal to tie the score at 13-13. This trio combined for 348 rushing yards and three touchdowns playing second fiddle to Johnson last season. Adam longest field goal was 46 yards. But he missed the second kick. Not one bit. The first quarter was all about the Indianapolis Colts and quarterback Jacoby Brissett making his first start in relief for Scott Tolzien. "I take credit for that and I just have to know, which I do know, make a better decision".

Arians said he doesn't "feel great" about the left side of Arizona's offensive line, which will feature two new starters this weekend. While Tom Brady was serving his four-game suspension last season, Brissett was forced to step in when backup Jimmy Garoppolo was sidelined with an injury. Once he does, he will likely need four weeks before he is ready to play in a game.
