Teddy Bridgewater struggles in preseason opener

In his first preseason contest Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater struggled.

While Matt Cassel started Friday’s contest but Bridgewater still go a chance to see action with the first team offense.

While Bridgewater played into the third quarter he struggled to put much together finishing the night 6-of-13 for 49 yards. He also fumbled once which the Vikings recovered.

There is still time for Bridgewater to overtake Cassel or the starters role but he can ill afford many more bad moments. Cassel finished the night 5-of-6 for 62 yards.
