Week 11: Denver Broncos @ St. Louis Rams (11/16/14 11:00 am MST)

Bradford was actually having a fairly efficient season last year before yet another injury relegated him to clipboard duties. This will be a make or break year for Bradford but if he can stay on the field he has a great chance of taking another step forward. Jeff Fisher and his staff have surrounded Bradford with one of the best offensive lines in football and he shouldn’t have to take very many chances with the defense the Rams should field this season.

Bradford has shown at times throughout his four-year career he has what it takes to be a top-flight NFL quarterback, but like the two sophomores before him on this list he hasn’t figured out how to do it consistently. Even at home it will be a tall order for the Rams’ offense to keep pace with the Denver Broncos when they roll into St. Louis in November. As long as Manning is still taking snaps instead of Brock Osweiler, this one is also no contest.

Advantage: Manning/Broncos
