Bruce Arians does not try to pretend this is just another game. Not after what he and the Indianapolis Colts went through last season. 

As anyone who pays attention to the NFL knows, Arians took over as interim coach of the Colts when Chuck Pagano was stricken with leukemia. He famously left the light in Pagano's office on, never to be turned off until the coach returned. 

Meanwhile, Arians guided Indianapolis to a 9-3 record, earning coach of the year honors in the process. That propelled Arians to the head coaching job in Arizona and on Sunday his Cardinals will face Pagano and the Colts. 

Arians says he wished the Colts weren't on the schedule. Since they are, he says, better that the game be played in Arizona than Indianapolis.
