Colts-Cardinals: November 2013 Blowout Win

The Arizona Cardinals made a statement when they defeated the Indianapolis Colts, 40-11. 

With a 7-4 standing, the Cardinals stayed in serious contention for a wild card playoff berth. The Arizona Cardinals proved their playoff worthiness when they beat the Colts at home. 

The Cardinals made an explosive first half by ending it with double-digit points. Arizona led 27-3 at the end of the first half, while their quarterback finished 15 of 20 for 191 YDS (passing yards) and two touchdowns (TDs).  

The ball landed in the hands of Arizona’s wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He also beat two Colts players to the end zone. 

The Colts’ offense was weak in the third quarter. Though Indy made its first TD with 10:26 left plus a two-point conversion, its score was still behind by 23 points. 

Colts vs. Cardinals: Stats Last Season

2017 NFL Week 2 

Arizona’s Carson Palmer made a late rally that pushed the Colts-Cardinals game into overtime. His teammate, Tyrann Mathieu, also made interceptions that set up fellow Cardinals Phil Dawson for a 30-yard field goal. 

Dawson pushed a 42-yarder wide right as time expired. The Cardinals (1-1) never led until the final play. 

The Colts were 0-2 for the fourth consecutive year. Indy’s quarterback, Jacoby Brissett, led the Colts to a TD on their first drive. He also made a field goal on the second drive. 

Unfortunately, Indy’s inability to move the offense helped Arizona’s Palmer get in sync. The Cardinals won the game via OT, 16-13.
