Indianapolis Colts home opener against the Arizona Cardinals

Indianapolis: The Indianapolis Colts will still be without Andrew Luck going into week 2 of the season. So they will have Scott Tolzien taking the reins again after not doing so good against the Rams.

The Arizona Cardinals are coming off a loss to the Detroit Lions. Despite the loss Carson Palmer threw a bit better then Tolzien did in the season opener. He threw for 269 yards and went 27/48 with one touchdown and three interceptions.

The Colts are going to have to take advantage of any turnovers and hope the defense is not still tired from last weekend. Scott Tolzien better be doing his homework and getting mentally prepared for this game if he expects to lead the Colts to a win at Lucas Oil on Sunday.

The three keys to the game for the Colts to win will be that the defense is going to need to get some sacks and get some key stops at the line.

Another key is Scott Tolzien is going to have to play like an elite quarterback, the Arizona defense is going to try to get at him and make him feel pressured all night.

Last key for the Colts to win this game is score first and score often they do not want to play from behind at Lucas Oil, then you will lose the crowd and any momentum going into another half and another quarter.

I hope the Colts can pull this one out, but i think the Arizona Cardinals come into Indy and win this game 35-20. The quarterback void is going to hurt the Colts for a while.
