Garrett Bradbury – C

Garrett Bradbury had himself a game to forget this past Sunday. While he is certainly deserving of blame, when you’re going up against one of the best interior defensive linemen in the entire NFL for your first game back in weeks, it’s hard to do a stellar job.

Bradbury could have done better for sure, but his guards on the interior did very little to help him in his return.

Bradbury was barely able to practice prior to the Vikings playoff matchup, and when you couple that with his battle against Dexter Lawrence, it was a recipe for disaster.

Lawrence had his way with Bradbury all day, a common sight to see from the big man for New York. While Bradbury struggled mightily, it didn’t help that right guard Ed Ingram and left guard Ezra Cleveland gave him little help up the middle.

Bradbury may have been rushed back to play this past weekend, as the Vikings were very thin at the center position, and it clearly showed that he wasn’t fully up to the task after missing so much time.
