The 2015 Pro Bowl selection, who many experts said would never play again, signed with the Jets at the beginning of the 2018 season as a backup to rookie Sam Darnold. Once Darnold assumed a firm grasp on the starting job, Bridgewater signed with the Saints. It wasn't because he bombed with the Jets, but because the franchise traded up to grab Darnold with the No. 3 pick in the draft and were committed to him, win or lose.
On Sunday, Teddy B finally got a chance to touch the field in a regular season game, which is a huge deal.
His first pass was a 16-yard completion to Mark Ingram and he finished 14-of-22 for 118 yards a TD and a pick. Later in the game he threw his first TD pass since December of 2015.
Great to see Bridgewater back on the field and he should be in someone's camp next season competing for a starting job. What a comeback story.
