Garrett Bradbury – C
As mentioned above, the interior of the Vikings’ line struggled in Miami. Kirk Cousins felt immense pressure and the majority of that came up the middle.
Minnesota center Garrett Bradbury has been shockingly good this season and has gotten better every single game. However, he had a bit of a regression down in South Beach and looked much like the Bradbury of old.
Bradbury was pushed around by a very talented Dolphins’ defensive line. He also had a miscommunication that lead to an Elandon Roberts sack of Cousins where he came in basically untouched. That may or may not have been Bradbury’s fault, but it definitely didn’t look great for the maligned center.
Bradbury has been much better this season, and this down game of his is still a much more solid performance than what we’ve gotten accustomed to seeing from him over the years.
Bradbury’s future with Minnesota is uncertain, and while this game may not help, his play this season has at least made the discussion of bringing him back in 2023 a possibility.
