It has been a tough road back for Bridgewater, but this was his first start back in the NFL since a knee injury derailed his career in Minnesota. The Saints elected to go with their backup this week in a meaningless game as far as playoff seeding went. This was Bridgewater's opportunity to show the rest of the NFL that he could start again. It was a mixed bag of results as Bridgewater was without the full complement of offensive weapons this week. He threw his first touchdown in 3 years and added an interception on a poor read. Bridgewater looked mobile in the pocket and added a 9-yard rush for his long this week. His first touchdown in 3 years came to Smith and it was an amazing catch by Smith across the middle. Bridgewater took the shotgun snap and danced around in the pocket before finding Smith across the middle in the end zone. There was no pressure in his face, but Bridgewater let the ball go a little high and Smith took a big hit as he came down with the ball. The throw got the job done, but also shows a bit of rust on Bridgewater still. His interception came on the next drive when he targeted Watson deep down the seam. Bridgewater under threw his big tight end and it was a diving effort by the defender for the interception. It was not the best showcase for Bridgewater statically, but he did show that he is healthy and can compete at the NFL level.
