We continue our season reviews with New Orleans Saints backup quarterback and pending free agent, Teddy Bridgewater. In 2019, Bridgewater unexpectedly had to assume the starting position and responsibilities after quarterback Drew Brees missed five weeks with a thumb injury.

Level of play in 2019

As previously mentioned, Bridgewater was thrust into the starting quarterback role in Week 2. In the five games he started, Bridgewater averaged 241 passing yards per game, with an average passer rating of 103.68, well above his career average of 88.3. To top it off, in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Bridgewater had a passer rating of 131.2, the second highest of his career.
