Week 4: at Denver Broncos
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. With Adrian Peterson featured against the Chargers, Teddy Bridgewater took a back seat in Week Three, throwing 13/24 for 121 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception against the Chargers. He had just one rush for -1 yards in the game - Minnesota is leaning on Peterson heavily coming into Week Four. The team hopes that Charles Johnson (ribs injury) will be able to go this week (but he's been slow this year so far with eight targets for 6/46/0 receiving). None of the Vikings' wide receivers have scored yet - Mike Wallace leads the team with 14 targets for 12/150/0 receiving to date. The Broncos' pass D is ranked first in the NFL averaging a meager 176.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with a mere one passing score given out to date, vs. six interceptions (tied for second in the NFL) and 11 sacks (tie-third) generated. Matthew Stafford was sacked four times last week, and threw 31/45 for 262 net yards, one TD and two interceptions vs. Denver. This is a fearsome pass D, friends. Advantage, Denver.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 3 vs SD (4 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)
Wright is doing good work for the Vikings on crossing patterns underneath that allow him to get yards after the catch, but he is just a role player in this offense.
2015 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec, 1 / 29 / 0 rush)
Jarius Wright's first catch was on a dime thrown by Teddy Bridgewater in the first quarter. On the play, Wright ran a 15-yard out route, ending up close to the sideline. Bridgewater placed the ball perfectly where Wright was the only one who could make a play on the ball. Wright also showed off some speed on a reverse near the end of that same quarter, as he took the ball and then went outside (with some help from a Bridgewater block), outrunning defenders until he was brought down after gaining 29 yards.
2015 Week 1 vs SF (4 / 1 / 27 / 0 rec)
Wright was bracketed by good coverage all evening, with his one catch coming with the defense playing a prevent at the end of the first half. Wright was also the target on a wildly overthrown ball in the middle of the first quarter that, if it had been a better pass, might have been intercepted anyway.
