The Pro Football Writers of America have named their 2014 All-Rookie Team, and to the surprise of nobody (with the possible exception of Oakland Raiders fans), Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been named the team's quarterback.
Bridgewater started 12 games for the Vikings in 2014, and completed 64.4% of his passes (the third-highest percentage for a rookie in NFL history) and threw for 2,919 yards, as well as 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also notched six victories on the season, which was as many victories as all of the other rookie quarterbacks in the NFL this season combined.
Unfortunately, Bridgewater was the only member of the Vikings to make the team. The PFWA named Giants' receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. the Offensive Rookie of the Year (as well as the overall Rookie of the Year), while St. Louis Rams' defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Congratulations to Teddy Bridgewater on making the PFWA All-Rookie Team. The full All-Rookie Team looks like this:
