It’s been a long time since Teddy Bridgewater experienced a night like Friday.
The New York Jets quarterback hadn’t completed a pass since the 2016 preseason, before a gruesome non-contact dislocated knee injury wiped out the past two years, threatened to terminate his career, and ended his short-lived run as the face of the Minnesota Vikings.
Friday night, Bridgewater had a night of many first-in-a-long-times. His first completion, first touchdown pass, first time getting hit in game action since an Aug. 28, 2016 preseason tilt.
It wasn’t just the night of firsts that made the performance so special, it was that Bridgewater was nearly flawless. The Jets signal-caller completed 7 of 8 passes for 85 yards and one touchdown in two scoring drives, leading to a 10-0 first-half lead before he relinquished duties to star rookie Sam Darnold.
“I felt great. It was an awesome feeling. I was at peace out there,” Bridgewater said, via the New York Post. “I was just so excited. I was glad to be out there with the guys, looking at [their] eyes, and feeding off [their] energy.”
