Fran Tarkenton: Teddy Bridgewater can play; so can Vikings
The Vikings' 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday was the most exciting NFL game I've watched in years. I lived and died with every play, and a thrilling game had a finish to match. I walked away with one clear conclusion: Teddy Bridgewater can play. Pioneer Press September 30, 2014
