The Colts will look to extend their winning streak with a victory against the Cardinals in Arizona.
Coming off a 27-17 win against the Patriots last week, the Colts will look to advance to 9-6 and battle for the top of the AFC South. Carson Wentz only completed five passes during the matchup and running back Jonathan Taylor carried the Colts offense with 170 rushing yards and a touchdown.
The Cardinals’ defense, which allowed 126 rushing yards during the 30-12 loss to the Lions last week, will be challenged by Taylor as he attempts to continue his hot streak. Linebacker Markus Golden leads Arizona with 11 total sacks and Chandler Jones has 9.5 for the season after bringing down Jared Goff on Sunday.
During the Cardinals’ last five matchups, Kyler Murray recorded six interceptions. The quarterback helped Arizona earn a 33-22 win against the Bears in Week 13, and completed 11 passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns, and added 59 rushing yards with two scores. As Murray prepares to go up against the Colts’ defense, which only allowed 81 rushing yards against the Patriots, he will likely rely on driving the ball through the air.
A win for the Colts will boost their chances at reigning supreme in the AFC South, however, it will hurt the Cardinals as they fight to stay on top in the NFC West. Coming off an embarrassment against the Lions, Arizona is in critical need of a victory.
