Minnesota Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made his NFL debut on Sunday against the Saints, completing 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards in place of Vikings starter Matt Cassel, who left the game with a foot injury.
It didn't take long for Bridgewater to make his mark Sunday. On his first series, Bridgewater completed three passes for 46 yards and had two rushes for 11 yards, leading Minnesota to a 30-yard field goal from Blair Walsh.
The Vikings selected Bridgewater with the 32nd overall pick of the 2014 draft. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner later said that Bridgewater should have been a top ten selection.
