Minnesota Vikings Nominated for Performance Play Of The Year


The Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year nominees for the 2014 regular season have been released and the Minnesota Vikings have a play nominated for the award.

The play that received the recognition didn’t start off as much.  In overtime of the game between the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings, rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater audibled to a screen pass after seeing the coverage by the Jets defense.  Bridgewater’s pass to third year wide receiver Jarius Wright was high, but Wright jumped to grab it and immediately took off running.  With solid blocking for Greg Jennings and Kyle Rudolph, Wright sprung the short pass for a 87 yard walk off touchdown win.

Here is a gif of the play to refresh your memory:
