y 48 hours away from their final preseason game, there are still plenty of position battles to be decided. Some of those battles tend to fly a little under the radar to the casual fan, but there’s always a focus on who’s playing quarterback.

And it turnut the Cardinals still have a dilemma there.

Not in terms of who the No. 1 is, of course. Sam Bradford has been the guy all along, and he’s done nothing this preseason to dissuade his coaches or teammates from feeling that way.

The dilemma centers around the guy behind him. Josh Rosen’s status as a first round draft pick at quarterback might typically be enough to earn him a rest in the preseason finale.

But this situation is a little different after Rosen, who will be a game-time decision Thursday against the Denver Broncos, missed the third preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday with a thumb injury. That’s because Rosen may very well be the first option off the bench if Bradford goes down at any point during the regular season.

Through three games, he has completed 28/41 of his passes for a 68.3% completion rate. He has thrown for 340 yards, 3 touchdowns to just one interception. On the flip side, Lynch has completed 14/29 of his passes for a 48.3% completion rate. He has just 102 yards passing with 0 touchdowns and one interception.

It’s pretty clear who is rising and who is falling here. Both still need a big game though. Kelly to keep his hype train rolling and Lynch to give evaluators around the NFL hope he might still have a future in this
