GLENDALE Eddie Yarbrough Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — The first time Christian Kirk returned a punt in college, he took it back for a touchdown. He almost did it again on his first touch in the NFL.

“I was thinking to myself ‘It’s happening again,'” the speedy Arizona rookie said.

Not quite.

He slipped making a move, against the punter (a former college teammate) no less, but the 38-yard return set up a touchdown drive in the first-team offense’s only series of the game, and the Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Chargers 24-17 in their preseason opener on Saturday night.

Rookie Josh Rosen completed 6 of 13 passes for 41 yards in his Arizona debut, playing the whole first half after the opening series.

“There’s a lot of things he’s going to be able to learn and grow from off this first game, watching the tape,” Cardinals first-year coach Steve Wilks said. “We expect him to get better, along with myself and everybody else.”

Geno Smith, battling Cardale Jones for the backup job behind the Chargers’ Philip Rivers, completed 14 of 23 passes for 218 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown throw to Geremy Davis . He was intercepted once.

With Rivers sitting this one out, Jones started and played nearly the entire first half, completing 6 of 12 passes for 50 yards.

“At some point, I want to know what we have in Cardale Jones Cassius Marsh Jersey ,” coach Anthony Lynn said. “He came into this league and he’s never really been given a legitimate opportunity, in my opinion. I want to give him that opportunity.”

Kirk, Arizona’s second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, took the Chargers’ early punt and broke free . He might have taken it all the way had he not slipped trying to make a move against Los Angeles punter Drew Kaser, Kirk’s teammate at Texas A&M.

Kirk probably could have run right past Kaser.

“I gave him the benefit of the doubt, thought he could run a little bit,” Kirk joked.

“He thought I was going to keep running, too. It’s definitely disappointing, obviously, when you think you had an opportunity to get in the end zone, especially on my first touch.”

Arizona’s David Johnson reeled off a pair of 14-yard runs on the first two plays, his only carries of the night, and rookie Chase Edmonds scored on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line. Edmonds was hit behind the line of scrimmage but used a second effort to barely stretch the ball over the goal line.

Sam Bradford, making his debut as Arizona’s starting quarterback, directed the scoring drive in his Cardinals debut but mostly handed the ball off. He completed his only pass for 6 yards.

Arizona’s second touchdown came in the third quarter when Jeremy Cash returned a fumble 12 yards for a score. Later in the quarter, Cash was carted off the field with a knee injury.

Charles Kanoff Richard Sherman Jersey , an undrafted rookie out of Princeton, threw a 14-yard TD pass to Bryce Williams for the go-ahead score with 10:06 to play. The game ended when Chargers QB Nic Shimonek was tackled at the Arizona 2-yard line.

Arizona was 0 for 11 on third-down conversions.

ROSEN’S DEBUT

Rosen didn’t get much help from his offensive line or his receivers, having to dodge the rush to get a pass off. He had two passes dropped.

Daniel Munyer, the backup center now that rookie Mason Cole is a starter, had trouble with shotgun formation snaps, repeatedly rolling the ball to the quarterback. Cole took over when A.Q. Shipley went down with a torn ACL in training camp.

“I think I did some good things and some bad things,” Rosen said.

OKUNG’S PROTEST

Los Angeles left tackle Russell Okung raised his right first during the national anthem.

Okung stood behind the rest of the players, who had lined up on the sideline. He was the only player on either side to protest visibly.

Okung is a member of the executive committee of the NFL players’ union.

SLOPPY CHARGERS

Los Angeles turned the ball over four times, three times on fumbles and once on an interception.

The Chargers also were penalized 15 times for 155 yards. Arizona had one turnover and 11 penalties for 110 yards.

“You could tell it was definitely preseason week one,” Lynn said. “It was too sloppy.”

UP NEXT

Chargers: are home against the Seattle Seahawks next Saturday night.

Cardinals: play at New Orleans on Friday night.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Panthers rookie cornerback Donte Jackson is showing he can talk the talk.

Now coach Ron Rivera is hoping the team’s second-round draft pick can walk the walk.

The Louisiana State standout has already turned heads at training camp, displaying impressive speed – and a cocky swagger to match.

”He is fast, and I love his confidence level,” Rivera said of the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Jackson. ”We haven’t had a guy like that since Josh Norman.”

Norman was an All-Pro cornerback for the Panthers in 2015, the year Carolina went 17-2 and reached the Super Bowl. But he was released the following season because of a contract disagreement and signed with the Washington Redskins.

The Panthers have found one solid replacement at cornerback in James Bradberry Shilique Calhoun Jersey , and are in search of another. With veteran Ross Cockrell going down with a leg injury on Monday, Jackson may be called on to fill the other starting spot.

Not surprisingly, Jackson said he’s up to the task.

”Coming into the NFL I have always felt like I belonged here,” Jackson said.

Panthers cornerback Kevon Seymour has seen firsthand Jackson’s swagger. Seymour said when running back Christian McCaffrey was racing down the field, Jackson turned to teammates and said, ”He might outrun y’all, but he ain’t gonna outrun me. I’m way too fast for that. I’m like electricity. Shoooooom!”’

With that, Seymour started to laugh.

”That is how much confidence he has,” Seymour said.

Back in minicamp, Jackson told reporters he’s like the Beyonce song ”I just woke up like this.”

When Rivera heard that he broke into a wide grin.

”He is a personality,” Rivera told the team’s website in May. ”He’s got a lot of confidence. You see it on the field. You see it when you talk to him. You watch it in his gait, the way he carries himself. That’s the type of attitude you have to have if you want to play in this league. You have to have a certain type of swagger. Josh Norman had it. He had it from Day One. You guys saw it. He struggled a little bit, but because of his swagger, he was able to bring himself back. Well, this young man’s got something.”

Jackson, who said he’s been a talker since he played youth football Andre Holmes Jersey , welcomes the comparisons to Norman.

”I’m not quiet out there, and I play the same position” as Norman, Jackson said. ”We both talk a lot and compete at a high level so that’s going to draw a lot of comparison.”

Said Bradberry: ”He’s definitely confident in himself. I wouldn’t say he’s much of a trash talker. But that is the way people are going to perceive him, because he is very confident in himself. But he does talk a lot. And he’s very fast.”

Jackson’s speed in coverage has been on display on several occasions during training camp. The 5-foot-10, 188-pound cornerback got beat by rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore on one play, but then quickly recovered and broke up the pass.

”He’s not the biggest corner but he’s real fast,” Bradberry said.

When a reporter asked who is the fastest player on the team, Jackson responded by saying ”Donte Jackson, No. 26.”

And when asked if there is a player in the league he can’t cover, he said, ”C’mon man, you know the answer to that. I don’t feel like there is anybody I can’t cover.”

His Twitter handle reads Donte ”Action” Jackson because he says ”I’m about that action, simple as that.”

The Panthers sure hope so.

”It’s good to see,” Rivera said of Jackson’s confidence level. ”But remember, you have to back it up.”
