Bridgewater was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2014 and became the team’s starter soon afterward. However, he suffered a devastating knee injury in training camp in 2016 and missed the entire season. He came back to only play one game for the Vikings the following year.

He signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2018 to back up Drew Brees. He backed Brees up for two seasons. He played in five games for New Orleans in 2019 when Brees went down with an injury and led the Saints to five straight wins.

Bridgewater finished 2019 with 1,384 passing yards, nine touchdown passes, and two interceptions.
