Carolina Panthers

Teddy Bridgewater improvising, extending drives

On the Carolina Panthers first drive against the Arizona Cardinals, Teddy Bridgewater was able to scramble for a first down. Apparently, that was not how it was supposed to go down. 

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule credits Teddy Bridgewater for improvising  a busted play. 

“Really on that play, we had some sort of miscommunication with the receiver, not blaming him, just something happened wrong, and so it was just Teddy and Teddy found a way to make it happen. That has been my message from the very beginning with our guys – great players are way more important than great coaches and great players figure it out. I thought that was a great example of Teddy just figuring it out.”

Here is the play in question.


Clearly Pharoh Cooper is confused on the play. (and yes, this was an uncalled delay of game because of it), But Teddy was able to improvise and get the first down on a touchdown drive that set the tone for the game. 

This isn’t average QB play in the NFL. This is good NFL play.
