Drew Stanton doesn’t make the quickest of reads, and he’s far from a pinpoint passer. He’s a lifelong backup whose throws have a tendency to sail.

His coach will argue otherwise, but Stanton isn’t leading the Cardinals to anything resembling a postseason run.

He can, however, fling it downfield, which is a talent he’s sure to showcase this afternoon.

Kansas City’s safeties can’t afford to gamble, particularly with a speedster like John Brown darting down the seam.
