Colts to start Jacoby Brissett

David Johnson injures Wrist in game against Lions

That's enough time, especially after what we witnessed last Sunday in Los Angeles.

After last week's nearly comedic performance, in which Tolzien threw a pick-six on his first attempt (one of two pick-sixes, actually), amassed a measly 128 passing yards, and ended up getting benched in the fourth quarter of a 46-9 spanking, Chuck Pagano has to start the newly acquired Jacoby Brissett. You can't have it on offense. Should the Cardinals start off 0-2, you can be assured that their odds won't be any better, especially with the recent loss of running back David Johnson. Since Arians assumed his role in Arizona, the Colts have peaked and come crashing down quicker than Vanilla Ice in the' 90s, and despite a rough year last season, the Cardinals have been one of the best teams in the NFL. The Cardinals allowed 26 straight points to fall behind 35-17.

Left tackle D.J. Humphries is out an estimated one to two weeks with a sprained knee and coach Bruce Arians said Friday that starting left tackle Mike Iupati won't play because of a triceps injury. "I'm going to make some mistakes and I'll own them". While Brissett is an upgrade, it's not a significant one for the pass offense. The defense will not have to worry so much about his abilities and will just have to focus on forcing mistakes from Carson Palmer. Scott Tolzien had an terrible time trying to replace Luck, throwing two picks that were returned for touchdowns before he was yanked.

His offensive line has never been good in five years, and his time off attests to that. Arians has worked with many skilled quarterbacks during his National Football League tenure, from Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger to Luck and Palmer. They're ready, " Pagano said.

- Not much more to say about Palmer this week.

New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles
The Yankees own an 11-6 advantage in the season series and it's because of an offense that has produced 141 runs so far. NY tied the game when first baseman Chris Davis misplayed Bird's grounder into an error , allowing Headley to score.

"Oh, No. 1 by far", he said Wednesday. "I just want to win". They went 11-3 after Brady finished the season for an injured Drew Bledsoe and then won Super Bowl XXXVI. I expect the Cardinals to pull out a win in what could be the ugliest game of the season, but it's hardly a sure thing.

Arians said the game will be a big opportunity for three young players - rookie wide receiver Chad Williams, running back Elijhaa Penny and tight end Ifeanyi Momah.

"It is a heck of a defense we're playing against, " Chudzinski said.

"We haven't had any injuries over there other than Robert so we should play better defensively for four quarters", Arians said.

A handful of Cardinals players also have Colts ties, including safety Antoine Bethea. That's what needs to happen for a team down so many pivotal players to have a chance on Sunday. "We played really good for three (in Detroit) and if we can just sustain that for four we'd have the defense I think we should have". In his five seasons to date, Luck has nearly 20,000 passing yards to his name, three pro-bowl appearances and was the 2014 passing touchdown leader.
