If the Cardinals are going to come back and beat the Broncos in Denver, they’ll need their rookie third-string quarterback to do it.
Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton, starting in place of the injured Carson Palmer, left today’s game to get evaluated with a concussion. That meant it was time for Logan Thomas to enter the game.
Thomas looked overwhelmed on his first series, a three-and-out on which he was sacked both times he dropped back to pass.
The Cardinals also lost one of their best defensive players, Calais Campbell, when he suffered a leg injury on an illegal chop block. The Cardinals’ Twitter made a point of complaining about that illegal block:
Campbell was a big loss, but Stanton may be a bigger loss.
