The Arizona Cardinals have struggled against backup quarterbacks and they will likely get one making his NFL debut on Sunday with the NFL Playoffs on the line.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Los Angeles Rams starting quarterback Jared Goff had surgery on his dislocated thumb on Monday with hopes that he will be ready to return for the playoffs.

Of course, the Rams would have to beat the Arizona Cardinals to make the playoffs, and they will likely have to do so with a backup quarterback in John Wolford who would be making the first start in his NFL career.

John Wolford is Goff’s backup and now in line to start.
Wolford you may remember was the AAF Arizona Hotshots quarterback in the leagues lone season.
Now, he has a shot to knock the Cardinals out of the playoffs.
A win and their in game for the Cardinals is getting the big stage as well, something we will look at later.
