Whatever issues the Rams defense had in the first quarter against the Raiders, it won’t likely happen against a Cardinals defense with Bradford taking the snaps.
Bradford, who had a less than pedestrian game against the Redskins in Week 1, throwing for 153 yards on 20/34 and an interception, won’t be much better this week. Already the whispers of Rosen taking over are making their way through the desert, and those same whispers will likely follow him to the Los Angeles Coliseum.
Don’t look for wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to be terribly effective against the Rams pass defense either.
Arizona will find it tough going against Los Angeles, and the one to bear the brunt of what the best team in the division can offer, will be Bradford.
Does this mean the Rams get to baptize Rosen in his NFL debut should things get out of control in LA?
That might be something worth watching.
Either way, look for the Cardinals to maintain a six point scoring average, as the Rams defense punishes Bradford, who won’t get his team into the end zone once on Sunday.
