    Arizona possibly has the worst team in this thing , which makes sense considering their decades of futility and lack of a real home grown star at quarterback. Their secondary would be their best hope and Lane and Williams are both two of the best and the Wilson brothers would both keep Manning , and especially his receivers a little scared to attack them. Manning is too smart for that though , he would attack them with the running game and then when the linebackers and Wilson started creeping closer to the line , Mackey would start getting his production.

    Defensively the Colts would have some problems with the Cardinals receivers , who are a great duo in their own right. The problem is that you would have to consistently rely on Plummer to get them the ball in the right situations and not make mistakes and I think the Colts defensive line could get some pressure and force Plummer into doing Plummer things. The Cardinals best shot would be running Anderson behind Dierdorf and Gray and hope Dierdorff maybe rips Marchetti's ear off in a scrum.

    Final Score
    Colts - 27
    Cardinals 13

    Passing Leaders
    P. Manning - 21/30 , 246 Passing Yards , 2 TD's 1 INT

    Rushing Leaders
    E. James - 21 att. , 109 yards , 1 TD
    O. Anderson - 16 att , 71 yards , 1 TD

    Receiving Leaders
    J. Mackey - 7 rec. , 81 yards , 1 TD
    L. Fitzgerald - 11 rec. , 121 yards , 0 TD

    Defensive Standouts
    B. Sanders - 6 tkls , 1 INT , 1 Sack
    A. Williams - 2 tkls , 1 INT

    Really the only big advantage the Cardinals have is their secondary. And that really isn't going enough to overcome the Colts big advantage at quarterback and defensive line.

    I see a shootout early, then a blowout by the end of it in the Colts favor. Neither D is that tremendous, compared to what we've seen, but Colts would shut it down late 3rd Qtr and win comfortably.
