Jacoby Brissett Named Colts' Starting QB After Just Two Weeks with Team

NFC Championship- Green Bay Packers v Atlanta Falcons

Tolzien ended up getting benched in the fourth quarter, but Brissett didn't get much of a chance to do anything.

In his second start, the Patriots lost to Buffalo in a game the Bills dominated in the time of possession, winning 16-0.

That's great to hear, but with the question marks behind center our models are still tempering expectations here. He completed 2 of his 3 passes for 51 yards. And while still costing $7,200, his 10.3 projected FanDuel points rank 27th among all receivers. He won nine of his 12 games in charge and become the first man with the interim tag to be named the NFL's Coach of the Year.

Week one was Bethel's first full-time start at cornerback and it would be smart for the Colts to revolve their gameplan around picking on him.

Arians insists his offense won't change "one iota", but according to Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, "It changes drastically".

The Colts play the Arizona Cardinals next week at home.

Brissett replaced Tolzien in the fourth quarter of Week 1 and led the Colts to their only touchdown drive of the game.

And Scott Tolzien couldn't get out of his own way, leading to a quick hook from Chuck Pagano. Williams - a former Colts draft pick - is a speed back but has shown little pass-catching ability. Tolzien threw two pick-sixes, and almost a third had it not been for Donte Moncrief committing a facemask that prevented Tolzien from tying the National Football League record for a single game.

However, the defense played way above their heads today as they were missing two starters in the secondary and two of their top three linebackers.

Sunday, Brissett won't be working with the weapons or coach he had in New England, but it's an opportunity.

The Cardinals failed to keep up the eight-point lead after the second-half in the loss Lions last Sunday.

Need More winners against the spread? Remember, just seasons ago, the Colts played Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley on one week's notice.

What the decision to switch to Brissett also means is that the Colts are acknowledging they made a mistake in not acquiring another quarterback to challenge Tolzien during the offseason.

Brissett may not know the Colts offense, but at least we know he has yet to throw an interception in his career.

Cardinals: Host Dallas after opening the season with back-to-back road trips to the Midwest. Since this is just Week 2, the season is far from being over, so the Colts might as well see what the young signal-caller can do.

As bad as the Colts offense was a week ago, their defense was almost as weak, allowing the Rams to do whatever they wanted.
