Dismal Fourth Quarter Fuels Colts' Collapse To The Cardinals

The Colts lead 13-3 at halftime, but penalties and an interception from Jacoby Brissett in overtime keep them from closing out the game.

INDIANAPOLIS -- In his first start at quarterback since arriving in Indianapolis, Jacoby Brissett threw for 216 yards, but added an interception in overtime which sealed the Colts' second loss to start the season in a 16-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Running back Frank Gore added 46-yards rushing with one touchdown.

The Colts took a 10-3 lead into halftime thanks to a 5-yard touchdown run from Gore and a 46-yard field goal from veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri.

The defense added an interception of their own. Rookie DB Malik Hooker recorded his first INT of his career in picking off Cardinals' quarterback Carson Palmer midway through the second quarter.

Unfortunately, the Colts could not hold onto the lead. After Vinatieri added another field gooal to put the Colts up 13-3 near the start of the fourth quarter, Arizona tooking advantage of several late penalties committed by the Colts and put together two scoring drives: one for a touchdown and another for a field goal.

Indy would get lucky after icing Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson into missing a game winning field goal from 42-yards out as the 4th quarter expired.

Tied at the end of regulation, overtime ensued. The Colts only had one play in overtime, a passing play over the middle by Jacoby Brissett, which resulted in the interception that would set of a game winning field goal from Dawson.

The Colts are now 0-2 on the season and will face the Cleveland Browns at Lucas Oil Stadium next Sunday.
