An ESPN.com report from Oct. 18 indicates that coach Charlie Strong for the Cardinals believes his quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be ready to shine tonight, despite some saying he didn't play "his usual precise game" in their last outing. Louisville won that game 24-10, with Bridgewater on display in front of 26 NFL scouts from 20 different teams. Coach Strong said of his star QB:
"I don't think Teddy gets rattled with that. He didn't make some throws, but I guess every time he goes out we expect him to be perfect and he's not going to be perfect. People do have bad games.
We have raised the standard and he plays up to what we want him to play at. ... We won the football game."
