This was a case of one team simply out classing another. This is not a swipe or a knock on the Cardinals. They are not a crappy team. They'd surrendered an average of 56 rushing yards prior to this game. They have an impressive passing attack. They have an excellent kicker.
But they went up against a Colts team that has re-discovered the big play.
The Colts ranked up over 500 yards of offense on the Cardinals, including over 120 yards rushing. Defensively, the Colts held the Cards to 24 total yards rushing and only 2.2 yards a carry. They harassed Kurt Warner all night, forcing the Cardinals into three turnovers.
No word yet on Dwight Freeney's leg injury. He walked off the field and into the locker room and seemed to be OK. We will see if everything is all right with Freeney, who dominated Arizona's tackles all night.
This was a dominant performance by the Colts in primetime, which is business as usual. Enjoy the win.
