As the Cardinals face the Colts Sunday afternoon, there are several keys that they must accomplish to beat Indianapolis. With an emotional game for both teams, and a must win game for the Cardinals, it will take a tremendous amount of effort for them to come out on top.

The Cardinals have several things that they must accomplish to beat the Colts. First off, the Cardinals defense has to shut down Andrew Luck. As of lately, the Cardinals defense has been one of the best in the league. There is no doubt that this team can shut down Luck. With a stellar defensive line to get pressure on Luck, hopefully the Cardinals can establish a few sacks during the game.

Another key for this Arizona team will be turnovers. The Cardinals can't afford to turn over the ball and they certainly need to create turnovers on defense. The team that creates the most turnovers will win this game. They need to shoot for two or more turnovers this afternoon.

Time of possession falls into the hands of the offense. Arizona needs to have the ball as long as possible. With an explosive Colts offense, they need to keep the ball out of their hands. Smart play calling from the coaching staff and execution should put the Cardinals in good position.

The last key for the Red Birds will be to get the running game going. Running the ball will be huge. Last week the running game wasn't so hot. Everyone knows that the Cardinals can air it out. Along with passing they need to get the running game established this week. If they can, Arizona should walk away with a win.
