8. Sam Bradford touchdown pass to David Johnson

There weren’t many memorable moments in Sam Bradford’s short tenure as the Cardinals but he had a couple.  One of them was a moment we had to wait until week three to see.

We had hoped to see a lot of Bradford to David Johnson as a receiver in 2018.  After scoring six points in the season opener and then being shut out in week two, the Cardinals went into week three without any passing touchdowns.

After a quick early touchdown to tight end Ricky Seals-Jones to go up 7-0, the two hooked up for a touchdown with 1:40 remaining in the first quarter.  A 21-yard strike from Bradford to Johnson put the Cardinals up 14-0.

It looked like the Cardinals we were expecting to see.  Johnson had the lone touchdown leading up to the game on the ground, but Johnson was expected to see a lot of action as a receiver given the lack of depth at the position.

Unfortunately this would be the only touchdown pass Johnson would receive from Bradford.  Those two touchdowns against the Bears were the only ones he threw before being replaced permanently by Josh Rosen late in this game.
