Breaking down all of Teddy Bridgewater’s rookie season interceptions

13 of 13

Bridgewater’s final interception of his rookie season came in Week 17 against the Bears.

This is a quick slant look on a three-step drop for Bridgewater. As Bridgewater looks to fire the pass to Patterson, he notices the safety charging towards Patterson so he throws the ball a bit behind him to be safe. The ball ends up a bit more behind Patterson than Bridgewater wanted, although Patterson was able to get both hands on the ball.

To me, there’s fault on both ends here. Bridgewater’s pass could’ve been much better, but Patterson definitely could’ve caught the ball or at least prevented an interception.

So, after breaking down all of Bridgewater’s rookie season interceptions, it’s safe to say that not all 12 of them were his fault by any means. I’ll leave it up to you to interpret exactly how many were on Bridgewater and how many were not. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

A couple of things that Teddy Bridgewater can improve on this season include his tendency to stare down receivers and his tendency to try to do too much. Both of these things led to multiple interceptions in his rookie season. Bridgewater definitely has the arm talent and the smarts to make it as a successful starting quarterback in the NFL, and if he can fix these things it will only help his development.
