2. 350 yard-performance for Teddy Bridgewater
What a showing for Teddy Bridgewater. After showing that he can still be a capable starting quarterback in the NFL during his time with the New Orleans Saints, his stint with the Carolina Panthers was ultimately forgettable. Broncos general manager George Paton believed in Bridgewater’s abilities to surrender a 2021 sixth-round draft pick in exchange for Bridgewater. Through one game, it worked out pretty well.
Facing off against the Giants, Bridgewater completed 28-of-36 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 19 yards on three carries.
As mentioned earlier, Tyrod Taylor, who had not played in a game since Week 1 of the 2020 season, looked like a star against Jacksonville. Bridgewater has the chance to do just that against the Jaguars. Bridgewater was able to succeed against a Giants secondary that was seen as their greatest strength entering Week 1. That turned out to be New York’s undoing in the end. Bridgewater has the chance to do wonders against the Jaguars, even with the absence of Jerry Jeudy.
350 passing yards for Bridgewater. Book it.
