Poised and precise, Sam Bradford made an impressive debut as a starting NFL quarterback. It may have earned him the No. 1 job in the regular-season opener.
The top pick in the NFL draft zipped passes between and over defenders, threw for two touchdowns then watched the second half from the sidelines as the St. Louis Rams beat the New England Patriots 36-35 on Josh Brown 's 37-yard field goal on the last play Thursday night.
But will Bradford be back under center for the Rams first snap Sept. 12 against the Arizona Cardinals?
"We've got to look at the film," coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "I want to see how he handled things when there was pressure."
