Andrew Luck ruled out for Colts home opener Sunday

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano kept replaying the season-opening rout in his mind Sunday night.

It shouldn't come as a surprise considering he still has yet to practice with the team and the coaching staff being very tight-lipped about his status.

When looking at the Colts' starters going into this match, there is a big question of just who exactly is going to be starting in this match.

Vikings dominate the Saints in Monday's 29-19 victory
Stefon Diggs scored a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints , and he celebrated. The Vikings opened up last season 5-0 with victories over the Titans, Packers, Panthers, Giants and Texans.

"It's something we'll discuss", Pagano said when asked if Brissett could get the start this Sunday.

In fact, Tolzien probably would have thrown a third pick-six if receiver Donte Moncrief hadn't broken up the pass by grabbing the facemask of Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman.

The Indianapolis Colts got obliterated on Sunday by the Los Angeles Rams. Rookie linebacker Anthony Walker (hamstring) was the only player injured significantly Sunday, Pagano said.

Hamas ready to reconcile with Fatah
The Fatah leader expressed his hopes that "Hamas should commit to what it signs and announces and executes, so that we can delete the black era of division from the Palestinian history".

Brissett was 2-for-3 passing after replacing Tolzien in the fourth quarter of the Rams' blowout loss. Bruce Arians, head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, previously served as the Colts interim head coach while Chuck Pagano battled leukemia during the 2012 National Football League season. Well, unfortunately for Colts fans, Luck will not be on the other side against the Cardinals. That shows something about his competitiveness and will-to-win that Tolzien lacks. More recently, he threw for 341 yards and four touchdowns and ran for one more in the Patriots' 40-38 preseason loss to the Giants, securing a spot on New England's final 53-man roster and allowing the team to trade him. The choice seems obvious, but nothing is ever simple with Indianapolis. If the Colts do not win in Week 2, Pagano could be on the hot seat already this year.

The season opener in Houston turned into an unmitigated disaster with Collins going 16 of 31 with 197 yards and one touchdown while losing two of three fumbles in a 34-7 loss. They have to do so without including Andrew Luck in their Week 2 plans, with the quarterback ruled out for the next game against the Arizona Cardinals as he continues to recover from a shoulder surgery. He was eventually benched for the newly-acquired Brissett near the end of the game, and that may become a permanent move going forward for the Colts.

Tom Savage or DeShaun Watson
Comment below and tell us whether or not you think Watson is the right choice to start and whether he will play well on Thursday. The Cardinals scored the first 10 points of the game and led 17-9 late in the third quarter before giving up 26 straight points.
