The surging Indianapolis Colts will try to move closer to a postseason bid when they take on the reeling Arizona Cardinals in a key 2021 NFL Christmas Day matchup. The Colts (8-6) have been on a roll, winning two in a row and five of six, including last week’s 27-17 win over the New England Patriots, a team Indianapolis had not beaten since 2009. The Cardinals (10-4), who lead the NFC West by a tiebreaker over the Los Angeles Rams, have dropped two consecutive games and four of their past seven following a 7-0 start to the season. This will be the first meeting between the teams since 2017, when the Cardinals defeated the Colts 16-13 in overtime at Indianapolis.
Kickoff from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., is set for 8:15 p.m. ET.
