The Vikes find themselves at 2-4 and by no means are they out of anything. It has been a couple of tough weeks so let’s look at one of the bright spots and that is Teddy Bridgewater.
Teddy is fast moving up or passing former rookie Vikings quarterbacks’ records already and he is literally in his first couple of weeks. Sunday’s game will be his first start on the road.

2014 Draft Class passer Rating
1) Teddy Bridgewater- 111.2
2) Blake Bortles-110.0
3) Derek Carr 108.2
4) Jim Garoppolo 99
Bridgewater set a Vikings rookie passer rating in his first start in the NFL with a 98.9
If the Vikings can figure out a pass protection and I feel comfortable they will Bridgewater will smash every Vikings rookie record there ever was.
Go Teddy and Go Vikings.
