No surprise to Louisville fans, but Teddy Bridgewater had himself an impressive rookie season in the NFL. The quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings completed 259/402 passes (64.4%) for 2,919 yards. He had 14 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. He tied or broke all kinds of Vikings rookie records–91 to be exact. Yes, 91. I won’t list them here.
Now Teddy is a finalist for NFL Rookie of the Year. The other finalists are Odell Beckham, Jr., Mike Evans, Sammy Watkins, and Jeremy Hill. Notice anyone missing? I don’t see Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel, the two quarterbacks taken ahead of Teddy.
