Watch Indianapolis Colts vs Arizona Cardinals Online

The Arizona Cardinals have their sights set on a fourth consecutive victory in week 12 on the NFL schedule, but must defeat their coach’s former football home, the Indianapolis Colts, to pull the game off. Two teams gearing up for a postseason run will square off when we watch Colts vs Cardinals online free streaming live on CBS Sports by following the links found below.

The Cardinals have won three games in a row but those wins came against the Jaguars, Texans and Falcons. Today will be a true test of where their team stands in terms of making a postseason run toward a Wild Card spot as the Colts have a better record at 7-3 versus 6-4. With Seattle running away with the NFC West, the best the Cardinals can hope for right now is securing one of the two available Wild Card spots.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is facing his former team for the first time since he led them into the playoffs last year in an interim role. With coach Chuck Pagano sidelined, Arians steered rookie Andrew Luck and the Colts to a 9-3 record during his fill in time. That performance is the main reason Arians was hired for the head coaching position of the Arizona Cardinals, and it will be an emotional reunion for him and Pagano as the Cardinals try to win against the Colts for the first time in five tries.

Arizona’s defense has kept them in games just enough for Carson Palmer to guide the team through the air and secure wins. Arizona only gives up 81.4 yards per game on the ground, second best in the NFL, and have given up an average of only 45 yards per game on the ground over their past three wins. With Carson Palmer finally dialing down the interceptions, including none versus two touchdown passes against the Jaguars last weekend, the Cardinals are becoming a more complete team, granted one without much of a running game, who will give the Colts a run for their money when we watch Colts vs Cardinals online free live streaming on CBS this afternoon.

The Colts have managed to win three of their past four games but the wins haven’t been pretty. Last week they were behind 21-3 at the half and had to rally against the Texans, and this game came off being blown out by the Rams 38-8 in a game that resembled the Colts two years ago between Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck’s tenures as starting quarterback.

Running the ball has been an issue for the Colts all season and they found some success last week. Donald Brown broke loose for 80 yards and a pair of touchdown scampers while the team as a whole ran for 137 yards. The Colts failed to break 90 yards rushing in the previous two games, and Trent Richardson has yet to break out after another sub-par performance with 22 yards off eight runs last week.
