Vikings win, but big hit on Bridgewater leaves bad taste in their mouths


A big hit by LaMarcus Joyner injures quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and sparks some controversy. It seemed like Bridgewater was targeted by the safety as he was sliding down to end the play.

“The Minnesota Vikings stand at 6-2 after their 21–18 overtime win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, but nobody in Minnesota’s locker room was talking too much about the win, or about the team’s second half of the season and where things could go from here. Instead, the focus was on the hit Rams defensive back Lamarcus Joyner laid on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater early in the fourth quarter. The optics were not good for Joyner, who appeared to be targeting a sliding quarterback.” – Reported by Doug Farrar
