Jacoby Brissett to start for Indianapolis Colts in Week 2

Arizona Cardinals: 5 players who must show improvement

In another life, or alternate universe, perhaps the storyline would be different. Goodwin indicated Wetzel had very little work at left tackle.

Of course, that decision was never even an option for Irsay.

Chuck Pagano was forced to leave the team to undergo cancer treatment during the 2012 season.

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.

"Everybody has a bad game", head coach Bruce Arians said.

Scott Tolzien, the team's Week 1 starter, will sit for Brissett. The NFL, and life in general, are just kind of amusing that way. Carson Palmer threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-11 beat down of the Andrew Luck led Colts at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. He was subsequently shut out the following week in a loss to Buffalo when he had two fumbles. When not actively tossing the ball to the other team, he leaned heavily on Larry Fitzgerald and Johnson, who caught 12 passes for 143 yards between them.

Spoiler alert: it ain't Chris Johnson. Three times in his career he has had at least seven sacks in a season.

Hot Singer gets a New Kidney From Best Friend!
Now, Francia has spoken out about the donation and transplant with an emotional Instagram post that echoes Selena's sentiments. The two have been friends for more than eight years, often posting Instagrams of each using the words "sister" or "hermana".

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.

Recently-signed offensive lineman Alex Boone will start in place of Iupati, who played last weekend despite a tricep injury.

That ability to recover quickly from hard conditions, to not have poor plays or poor games linger from one day to the next or one week to the next is something Palmer takes great pride in, and something the Cardinals hope will once again be on display against the Colts. He healed after tearing his ACL for a second time, this time in Arizona.

Defensively, it's clear the Cardinals will want to mount a consistent pass rush against whichever quarterback the Colts start.

KEYS TO THE GAME: The Cardinals' offense might go into this game with wide eyes after watching the Los Angeles Rams batter the Colts for 46 points in Week 1.

On top of that, Indianapolis will face a Cards defense in Week 2 that ranked fourth against the pass last season.

PREDICTION: After losing their best playmaker on offense, the Cardinals could use a matchup like this.
