MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With the poise of a veteran, Teddy Bridgewater drove the Minnesota Vikings 79 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter that put their game against Green Bay well within reach.
If only the rookie quarterback could have been that sharp in the first half.
Bridgewater got off to a jittery opening in his first game against the Vikings’ biggest rivals, missing open receiver after open receiver, and it cost them dearly in a 24-21 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
“I think I was just very excited being able to play the Green Bay Packers for the first time,” Bridgewater said. “I just have to settle down and remain poised and just let the game come to me.”
