Welcome back, Teddy Bridgewater.
The Minnesota Vikings quarterback hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since suffering a devastating injury before the 2016 season. But the Vikings blew out the Cincinnati Bengals 34-7 Sunday afternoon, which allowed Bridgewater to make his return during the fourth quarter.
