#13. Minnesota Vikings: Teddy Bridgewater & Adrian Peterson

Bridgewater’s second season was much like his first — solid, but nothing to write home about. His numbers from Year One to Year Two are almost identical:

Passing Stats:

  • 2014: 2,919 yards, 64.4% completion, 7.26 YPA, 14 TDs, 12 INTs
  • 2015: 3,231 yards, 65.3% completion, 7.23 YPA, 14 TDs, 9 INTs

Rushing Stats:

  • 2014: 47 rushes, 209 yards, 4.4 YPA, 1 TD, 3 fumbles
  • 2015: 44 rushes, 192 yards, 4.4 YPA, 3 TDs, 8 fumbles

That’s not the improvement the Vikings would like to see, and while he proved capable enough to help get the team to the postseason, Bridgewater needs to make strides in 2016 to prove he can be a franchise quarterback.

Of course, having a mediocre quarterback is easier to stomach when Peterson is lined up at tailback. After missing nearly all of 2014, All Day looked like his old self in 2015, leading the league with 1,485 rushing yards. With his impressive return, he’s firmly established himself as one of the most reliable running backs in league history.
