Vikings starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will get the start against the Oakland Raiders. The 32nd overall pick of the 2014 draft is being billed as the next QB to break out and reach the next level.
Against the Raiders in Week 2 of the NFL preseason, Bridgewater completed 10-of-14 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown in about a quarter of work. Shaun Hill replaced the second-year player, but not before Bridgewater threw this 10-yard strike to Charles Johnson for his first touchdown pass of the preseason. Bridgewater completed his last seven pass attempts.
Below are Bridgewater’s stats to date:
2014: 64.4 percent, 2919 yards, 14 touchdowns, 12 interceptions
2015 Hall of Fame Game: 5-for-6, 44 yards
2015 Week 1 Preseason: 7-for-8, 86 yards
