A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
With Sam Bradford out for the season, it’s time to look at who should become the new Rams quarterback this year.
Another notable NFL injury occurred on Saturday, and though it may sound less serious, it may be much more serious in the long run. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker sustained his fifth concussion in a full year on Saturday, and it’s not known what his status is for week one.
“It’s tough to tell with these head injuries. The NFL obviously wants to be very careful with these concussions,” said Schalter. “They’re going to treat him with kid gloves, and honestly, they have so many options at WR in Denver, it might not slow them down at all. Emmanuel Sanders looked as though he may surpass Welker on the depth chart anyway.”
