Bridgewater completed 25 of 37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. He was sacked six times, and finished with 43 rushing yards on four carries. Bridgewater took a number of big hits, and had to leave the game briefly in the first half. While he showed toughness throughout, he couldn't make enough plays in the end. His fantasy production continues to be limited, with just one 300-yard passing game, and one touchdown or less in nine of 10 contests this season. The second-year QB has added some fantasy value as a runner, with a couple of touchdowns on the ground. Next week, he and the Vikings will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons, who have generally held opposing QBs in check this year.
Bridgewater (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers. Bridgewater hasn't reached 200 yards passing in three consecutive contests, averaging 157 yards with a 60.3 completion percentage and two touchdowns versus two interceptions during that span. Clearly, the Vikings' offense centers around Adrian Peterson (hamstring), but Bridgewater could prosper against a Green Bay defense that has allowed seven touchdown passes to quarterbacks over the last four outings.
Bridgewater (left shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable against Green Bay. Bridgewater was able to fully practice all week, so this injury looks minor and likely won't be a factor Sunday.
Bridgewater (concussion) completed 14-of-22 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-14 win at Oakland. He also had two carries for 23 yards. Bridgewater was questionable heading into Sunday's game, but was able to suit up, playing an efficient game in the victory. He should have had two touchdowns, but Kyle Rudolph dropped a wide-open score in the end zone in the first half. While Bridgewater has led the Vikings to a 7-2 record, the team's success has not translated on his stat sheet, with multiple touchdown passes in just one of nine games this season. Next week, Bridgewater might have to air it out a bit more against Green Bay, although the Packers have really struggled offensively this year.
Bridgewater (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest at Oakland, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports. Emerging from the concussion protocol in short order, Bridgewater will extend his consecutive starts streak to 20 games, as he takes on a Raiders defense that has surrendered multiple touchdown passes in seven of eight games this season.
