TFD: A chance for Bridgewater to be a legend or Ponder to be an unlikely hero

TFD: A chance for Bridgewater to be a legend or Ponder to be an unlikely hero

Teddy Bridgewater is officially listed as questionable for Thursday’s Vikings/Packers game, after doing some light work in practice today. While we’d still be stunned if he doesn’t play — or at least we’re telling ourselves that so Sid won’t have ridiculous bragging rights and we won’t have to go to his house wearing a Ponder jersey — but questionable is questionable. It’s technically 50-50. So we’re left with this as a dueling best-case scenario: 1) Bridgewater is 90 percent or better and is able to suit up. The ankle hurts a little, but it’s manageable.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is listed as questionable with an ankle injury for Thursday’s game against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Vikings Rewind: Jerick McKinnon's 55-yard run

The situation: Up 14-7 with 13:07 left in the second quarter, the Vikings start their third offensive series at their own 8. They hand the ball off to rookie running back Jerick McKinnon. The reason: The Vikings are pinned deep in their own end zone and need some room to work with. They design a draw play in this situation, hoping it’ll do the trick. The result: McKinnon breaks off a career-long 55-yard run on his first carry to the Falcons 37 to put the Vikings in scoring position. “I was messing with him a little bit,” fullback Jerome Felton said. “I was wondering when I was...
