Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater Cleared To Play Against Raiders
After suffering a concussion against the St. Louis Rams last week, the status of up-and-coming quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been up in the air for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Bridgewater has played well this season leading the Minnesota Vikings to an impressive 6-2 record, but without him under center, the Vikings could be a very different team this weekend.
According to Ben Goessling of ESPN, Minnesota will have their star quarterback back in action this weekend.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who sustained a concussion Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, has been cleared and is ready to play against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, according to a league source.
The Vikings have been one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season with Adrian Peterson and company leading the way in the NFC North division. Minnesota is currently tied for first place in the division with the Green Bay Packers.
Coming into Week 10, the Vikings will face a Raiders (4-4) squad that has been equally surprising this season. Second-year quarterback Derek Carr has the Raiders firing on all cylinders with the team having a legitimate shot at making the playoffs for the first time in quite a while.
According to Sportsbook.ag, the Raiders are favored to get the win in Week 10 with a -3 point spread. Oakland will play host to the Vikings at O.co Coliseum with hopes of rebounding from last week’s loss on the road to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Although the Vikings are a talented team with a potentially bright future, Minnesota will find it difficult to content the Raiders’ potent offense in Oakland. The Raiders should get the win at home while covering the -3 point spread.
