Purple Podcast, ep 14: Bridgewater showed promise in Vikings debut
The Purple Podcast analyzes the Vikings’ week 3 loss to the Saints. Matt Cassel apparently broke several bones in his foot and will likely miss an extended period of time. Teddy Bridgewater saw his first game action sooner than many originally expected. And while he’s not a finished product quite yet, he displayed positive signs Sunday that we’ll discuss at length on this episode. We also address Adrian Peterson’s absence, the offensive line's struggles, Vikings injury updates and a pivotal call that went against the Vikings. And while Minnesota falls to 1-2 with the 11-point loss, there were several positives, including Harrison Smith’s performance.
