Sam Bradford led the Rams to a pair of touchdowns, and their defense made things tough on Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel in a 14-10 preseason victory Friday night.
Bradford was eight of eight for 76 yards on his first two series, with scoring passes of six yards to Mike Sims-Walker and 11 yards to rookie tight end Lance Kendricks. Bradford finished with 95 yards passing in his most significant dress rehearsal before the Rams’ opener against Philadelphia.
When it wasn’t Bradford hurting KC with his arm, Steven Jackson was pounding it. The big running back carried 15 times for 72 yards as St. Louis coach Steve Spagnuolo played his starters the entire first half.
The battle for the Chiefs’ backup QB job just became a little tighter after Ricky Stanzi, the fifth round pick from Iowa went 8 of 14 for 121 yards and a touchdown.
