  • Jacoby Brissett to start for Indianapolis Colts in Week 2

As a third-string quarterback, he went 1-1 in games he started, finishing with a quarterback rating of 80.7.

The 23-year-old threw three passes, completing two of them for 51 yards. Defensively, a Justin Bethel pick-six to open the scoring and a sack from Chandler Jones highlighted a frustrating performance from the Cardinals' defense, allowing 367 yards of total offense while giving up 20 unanswered points in the 4th quarter en route to the loss.

In Week 2, Brissett will be the leader under center for the Colts as they take on Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals. He completed a 50-yard pass, a drive that was capped off by a Marlon Mack touchdown.

The Indianapolis Colts will also look to rebound after suffering the worst loss of any team in week 1 on the scoreboard, falling by a final count of 46-9 at the hands of the L.A. Rams.

- For a Cardinal team that led the league in sacks a year ago, it sure seemed like the Defense couldn't get to Stafford - as he easily picked apart the Cardinal secondary - it seemed he was never really hurried to get rid of the football.

Brissett started two games for the Patriots last season after Jimmy Garoppolo went down with an injury and while Tom Brady was suspended. According to multiple reports, the Colts are planning to start Brissett in their Week 2 contest against the Cardinals on Sunday. Tolzien failed to connect with him on several plays, including an interception on a throw that missed its mark. He won the first start against the Texans 27-0, before the Patriots were shut out the following week by the Bills 16-0.

Large numbers of police, ambulances, and fire trucks are in the area, which has been cordoned off by armed police officers. It is also being reported that people were initially told not to leave the station before an evacuation took place.


What does this mean for the Colts? . Will it be Joe Haeg or Le'Raven Clark at right tackle, in place of Good, who played well in Week One?

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton said that winning matchups will help the team's quarterbacks to perform better moving forward.

Where is Andrew Luck and when is he coming back?

Luck's injured shoulder dates back to 2015, and he played (poorly, relative to his standards) through the injury in 2016 before the Colts finally chose to have him go under the knife.

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.
