Update: Bridgewater’s first pass went off of the hands of Jerick McKinnon and was intercepted by Bengals’ safety Shaun Williams. Not quite the debut that Bridgewater or the Vikings probably wanted, but he’s going to get a couple more opportunities in this one, I would imagine.
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time since August of 2016. . .and since January of 2016 in a game that actually means anything. . .it’s Teddy Time.
With the Minnesota Vikings stomping the Cincinnati Bengals 34-0 in the fourth quarter of their game at U.S. Bank Stadium, the purple has taken the opportunity to put quarterback Teddy Bridgewater into his first NFL game since the 2016 preseason.
We’ll see how Bridgewater does, but it’s pretty freaking great just to see him out there for this one.
Again, Teddy Bridgewater is in at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! It is Teddy Time in Minnesota.
