Carson Wentz has thrown a career-high four touchdowns against the Cardinals in only three quarters. More impressively, he’s thrown those scoring passes to four different targets.
The fourth, and arguably most impressive, came when Nelson Agholor shook rookie safety Budda Baker to his core with a spinning, juking dash that capped off a 72-yard reception in the end zone.
It’s great, Zimmer said. He’s worked extremely hard. Obviously not only him but the training staff, the doctors, [head strength and conditioning coach] Mark Uyeyama, all those guys have done a great job with him to try to rehab him and get him ready to practice. It’s a great deal for Teddy and we’ll take it one day at a time just like we did for the last 14 months.
Elite Mens Tyler Bozak Jersey Bridgewater injured his knee in practice on Aug. 30, 2016, and has been on the physically unable to perform list this season.
Bridgewater has been present in team meetings throughout the past 14 months. Zimmer said he is caught up on the playbook and receives the game script every week to run by himself.
He’ll be ready, Zimmer said. Teddy’s smart.
When Bridgewater practices, it opens a 21-day window for the Vikings to decide whether to promote him to the active roster or place him on injured reserve.

During his time with New Orleans, Brees hasn’t needed a great defense. He hasn’t even needed a decent one. When Sean Payton gives Brees a remotely competent defense, Brees delivers him to the postseason. I’ve mentioned this before, but the numbers are staggering. Check out the chart on the right.
The Saints have ranked in the top 25 of the league’s 32 defenses four times in 11 seasons with Brees. They’ve made the playoffs each time and won an average of 11.3 games along the way. Again, the Saints’ defense doesn’t even have to be good.
