Teddy Bridgewater is on cloud nine right now.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback played his part in guiding the Saints to a 33-27 win in the club’s first game without Drew Brees, who is expected to miss several more games as he recovers from thumb surgery.
Bridgewater, who was 19 of 27 for 177 yards, might not have had a strong arm game against Seattle, but he did just enough to will his team to victory.
After the game Sunday, Bridgewater led an emotional post-game speech where he gave praise to the team for accepting him, all while reminding others to not take what they have for granted.
A little more than three years have passed since a severe injury with the Minnesota Vikings nearly ended Bridgewater’s career. He suffered a dislocated knee and a torn ACL when he went down during a non-contact drill at practice back in 2016.
Here’s hoping he has a ton more of success in his career.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
