GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Indianapolis Colts propelled Bruce Arians into coaching prominence. On Sunday, as head coach in Arizona, his Cardinals embarrassed his former team. Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes to Larry Fitzgerald, Karlos Dansby returned an interception 22 yards for a score and the Cardinals won their fourth in a row with a 40-11 rout of the Colts. "We expect to dominate like this all the time," Dansby said. "We just finally put it together as a unit. Were starting to believe in each other and trust one another and were making plays all around." Arians became interim head coach of the Colts last season when Chuck Pagano was stricken with leukemia. Indianapolis went 9-3 under Arians, earning him coach of the year honours and a head coaching job in the desert. Now the 61-year-old coach is doing the same kind of job with the Cardinals (7-4). "The emotions of this game were gone way before kickoff," Arians said. "I saw a lot of friends, a lot of dear guys on that team. But once the whistle blows, its just you and your brother in the backyard." And Arizona was the big brother in this one. "I think this was a respect game," Palmer said. "I dont think were well-respected throughout the league and thats not anybodys fault but our own. "But I think were better than people think and when you beat a good team, and a team thats beat good teams, it ups your respect among your peers and throughout the league." Fitzgerald caught five passes for 52 yards, becoming the youngest player in NFL history to reach 11,000 yards receiving. Arizonas Michael Floyd had his second straight 100-yard receiving day with seven catches for 104 yards for the Cardinals (7-4). Andrew Luck threw for 163 yards, but had only 84 through three quarters as the Colts (7-4) fell behind 34-3. Its a familiar pattern. In their past four games, the Colts have been outscored in the first half 93-12. "There is blood in the water right now," Pagano said. "Until you get it fixed they are going to keep coming at us. It is the same thing week in and week out on both sides of the ball and on special teams. ... They are going to keep coming at you until we put out the fire. " The Colts still have a solid lead in the AFC South. "I dont know if I can big picture it right now coming off the field after we getting our butts beat like that. It is hard to," Luck said. "I guess we are sitting at 7-4, but I dont know what that means either." Jay Feely kicked four field goals in Arizonas highest-scoring game in three years, including a 21-yarder in the final minutes with the outcome long decided. Palmer, coming off a 419-yard passing performance against Jacksonville, completed 26 of 37 for 314 yards and, for the second week in a row, threw no interceptions. The Colts touchdown came on Lucks 17-yard pass to Coby Fleener with 10:26 to play. Palmer threw touchdown passes to Fitzgerald of 4 and 26 yards, then Dansby -- who had been kidded by his teammates for dropping a few potential interceptions this season -- picked off Lucks pass and returned it for a touchdown as the Cardinals blew open a 27-3 halftime lead. Arizona took the opening kickoff and went 80 yards in 10 plays, Palmer hitting Fitzgerald with a 4-yard fade pass for the touchdown. The Cardinals had no third downs on the drive. Arizona had a chance to lengthen the lead but the drive stalled at the Colts 10, then Sergio Brown blocked Feelys 28-yard field goal attempt. It ended a string of 17 consecutive field goals for the Arizona kicker. Adam Vinatieri kicked a 27-yard field goal to cut it to 7-3 with 1:15 left in the first quarter. But Arizonas offence got it rolling again. Palmer connected with Floyd for 29 yards to the Indianapolis 26. On the next play, Palmer, hit as he threw, lofted a pass to the end zone, where Fitzgerald beat two defenders to make the catch for the score to make it 14-3 with 13:29 left in the half. Moments later, Luck, under pressure from Darnell Dockett, threw toward Fleener. But Dansby stepped in front of the tight end, intercepted and returned it 22 yards for the touchdown to put Arizona up 24-3 with 7:55 left in the second quarter. It was Dansbys first touchdown since his 17-yard fumble return in overtime ended the Cardinals 51-45 wild-card playoff victory over Green Bay on Jan. 10, 2010. Notes: Through three quarters, the Cardinals had 346 yards to the Colts 96. ... Fitzgerald is 30 years, 85 days. Randy Moss had been the youngest to reach 11,000 at 30 years, 222 days. ...

Until last week, the Gambian-born forward was having a productive rookie season in Major League Soccer, flying mostly under the radar outside of Vancouver. But everything changed thanks to a stunning hat trick in a 4-1 road victory over the Seattle Sounders on Oct. 9 that saw the Whitecaps keep their playoff hopes alive. "Hopefully, if he keeps the right attitude, hell be somewhere else," DeMerit said Thursday when asked where he saw Mannehs career in a few years. "Thats not a bad thing. You draft kids to mentor them and make them better and you try not to hold those kinds of guys back. "Everyone speaks of his talent, and he knows of his talent. Now its just about making the most of that talent." But the 33-year-old Vancouver captain cautioned: "Hes not going to go anywhere unless he performs here first." And perform he did against the Sounders in a game the Whitecaps badly needed. Manneh scored in the 12th, 42nd and 54th minute for the franchises first MLS hat trick to send Vancouver to its first-ever league victory in Seattle. "Its always great to score a goal (and) especially a hat trick. Im really grateful to my team for the support they gave me," said the five-foot-nine Manneh, now also the youngest player to score an MLS hat trick. "It was a great feeling." Vancouver head coach Martin Rennie has had difficulty finding a consistent strike partner for Brazilian forward Camilo Sanvezzo this season, but seems to have something with Manneh. "Throughout the season hes just been developing as a player whos got exciting technique, great skills," said Rennie. "Hes naturally just a very gifted player and now hes learning the things weve been talking about. Hes learning his position a little bit more. Hes learning what it means to be a professsional player.dddddddddddd" Named MLS player of the week for his performance against the Sounders, Manneh was born in Madiba Kunda, Gambia, and played soccer non-stop as a child. "(Soccer) is all we do," he said with a smile. "Thats the sport you want to play. "We still have the field that I played on -- a dirt field." After his mother died when he was 10 years old, Manneh found his way to a Gambian soccer academy, which had a partnership with youth clubs in the United States. Manneh left Africa at age 15, eventually finding his way to a team in Austin, Texas, where he billeted with a family that would eventually adopt him. Fast-forward three years, the Whitecaps took Manneh with the fourth pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft. The club has tried to bring him on slowly, but he showed flashes of brilliance early in his professional career. "Coming in the first year I just wanted to learn as much as I could from the coaches and the senior players," he said. "I just came in every single day, worked hard and it paid off." Manneh came on as a second-half substitute with Vancouver trailing 2-0 against FC Dallas on April 27 and brought his team back to level with a goal and an assist. The Whitecaps (12-11-9) are three points out of the final post-season spot in the Western Conference, but play their final two games of the season against the fifth-place Colorado Rapids (13-10-9), who currently hold down the last playoff berth. Colorado hosts Vancouver on Saturday, before playing at B.C. Place Stadium on Oct. 27. With five goals and two assists in 18 games, including four starts, Manneh is trying to help the Whitecaps secure a playoff berth that seemed unlikely just a few weeks ago. "Over the course of the year, hes improved," said Rennie. "Hopefully over the course of a couple years he can improve the same or more and then youve got really a potentially consistent top player."
