Cardinals QB Josh Rosen kicks off first road start with deep touchdown bomb
Both the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals moved the ball down the field on their first possessions for touchdowns on Sunday.
And while both drives went 75 yards, rookie quarterback Josh Rosen made it look a whole lot easier in his first road start of his career.
Not more than 10 seconds after 49ers running back Matt Breida crossed the goal line on a five-yard run, Rosen and the Cardinals responded with a score of their own.
Rosen wasted little time getting adjusted to his road settings, finding a wide open Christian Kirk for the 75-yard strike.
One pass. One touchdown.
The Cardinals moved the ball 75 yards down the field in 10 seconds thanks to Rosen’s arm and Kirk’s legs while San Francisco took more than five minutes off the clock to march down the field.
Rosen closed out the first half completing seven of his 13 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown.
