Bradford makes debut, but Rosenfels steals spotlight

ST. LOUIS, MO- AUGUST 14

Sage Rosenfels threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, leading the Minnesota Vikings to a 28-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams in each team’s first preseason game.

Rosenfels  relieved  starter Tarvaris Jackson  early in the game and completed 23-of-34  attempts,  including touchdown passes of  65 and 71 yards to Garrett Mills and Marko Mitchell, respectively. The Vikings, currently playing without last  year’s starting  quarterback, Brett  Favre, are  looking to  build on  a season that saw them lose in overtime in the NFC Championship to New Orleans.

Rookie  Toby Gerhart  led the team in  rushing with 24 yards on eight carries, and Mills ended with four catches for 106 yards.

Top overall pick Sam Bradford made his Rams debut and completed 6-of-13 passes for  57 yards.  Bradford was  given  one of  the richest  contracts in  league history  as a  rookie,  and it  will be  up  to him  to  lead the  Rams to  an improvement on last year’s 2-14 mark.

Danny  Amendola accounted  for St.  Louis’ lone  offense with  a 93-yard  punt return for a TD in the opening quarter.
