From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Jennings was able to grab a score from Teddy Bridgewater, and he should have a higher weekly floor and ceiling as Bridgewater's game improves. Against Washington this week, he's worth a look with so many top receivers on bye this week.

Week 9: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Teddy Bridgewater notched his second win of the season for Minnesota vs. the hapless Buccaneers, cutting his interceptions to zero in that game while throwing 24/42 for 241 yards, one TD and one rush for three yards. Cordarrelle Patterson led the Vikings in receiving (12 for 6/86/0 receiving), but ended the day in a walking boot with a supposedly 'minor' foot injury - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News as we get closer to the weekend to see if Patterson can consistently practice this week. Tight end Chase Ford posted six targets for 6/61/0 receiving, while Greg Jennings handled the TD for Bridgewater with six targets for 3/38/1 receiving. It was a positive development for Bridgewater and the Vikings. The Washington pass D is ranked seventh in the NFL avearaging 219.2 net passing yards given up per game, but they bleed six-point plays this year with 17 passing scores allowed vs. only three interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied-ninth) generated. Last week Tony Romo and company posted 21/34 for 224 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions, with five sacks taken for -54 yards; Charlie Whitehurst threw 17/26 for 160 net yards, two TDs and one interception at Washington two games back, with one sack taken for zero yards. Bridgewater and company have a neutral matchup at home this week - we'll see if Bridgewater can get rid of the football quickly in the face of Washington's blitzing D.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs DET (6 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)

Jennings was invisible until the first quarter as Minnesota turned into clear catch-up mode on offense. Even then, Jennings was relegated to crossing routes, added a dropped pass, and one of his receptions came in the closing minutes of garbage time. Jennings has not scored since Week 1, has just eight receptions over the past three games, and the Minnesota offense has had little working in back-to-back games. Matchups against the Bills and Buccaneers coming up offer some optimism.

2014 Week 7 vs BUF (7 / 6 / 77 / 0 rec)

Jennings' first catch was an impressive one as quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw the ball high and behind his receiver but Jennings made a one handed grab. The bulk of Jennings' yards came on a 38-yard reception in the second quarter. On the play, the Vikings had three receivers spread out with Jennings in the slot. Bridgewater dropped back and had plenty of time to scan the field. The ball was a little short of Jennings but he had great position on the defender, blocking the Bills player out so Jennings could make the catch. Overall Jennings did a very good job hauling the ball in, catching six of seven targets and finding ways to gain separation through route running and physicality.

2014 Week 8 vs TB (6 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)

Jennings saw a lot of tight coverage and got little to no separation for most of the game, but managed to get some on his touchdown. On the play, he ran for the end zone on a deep route, getting just a little ahead of two defenders. Bridgewater threw a perfect pass, dropped the ball right in front of Jennings in the end zone for the score.
