Last Sunday was tough for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and today’s Buffalo Bills game may not give him much more room to breathe. As you watch Vikings vs Bills online free live streaming, you’ll see a rookie QB making his first start on the road. And while Buffalo lost last week as well, today’s Vikings game kicks off the softest part of their schedule.
Bridgewater got his second career start last week against the Detroit Lions and the NFL’s top defense. The rookie quarterback threw three interceptions in the 2-4 Vikings’ 17-3 loss after returning from an ankle injury. While he statistically outplayed Lions QB Matthew Stafford (23-for-37 with 188 yards vs. Stafford’s 19-for-33 with 185 yards), those three INTs were killers against the league’s top-rated pass defense.
The Bills’ pass defense isn’t nearly as stout, allowing 269.2 yards per game, but their run defense leads the NFL. Bridgewater will once again be without running back Adrian Peterson, so the Bills’ defense may gamble more than normal and put extra pressure on Bridgewater.
Buffalo (3-3) has its own challenges at quarterback. As you watch Vikings vs Bills online free today, Kyle Orton will get his third start as EJ Manuel is forced to watch live from the sidelines. Last week Orton went 24-of-38 for 299 yards and two touchdowns, but the Bills QB threw an interception and had a lost fumble. Those miscues provided just the opportunity the New England Patriots needed to win 37-22.
The Vikings’ defense will surely take note of how Orton performed last week under pressure. With cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes and Josh Robinson trying to lock down the Bills’ receivers, the Vikings pass rush will try to add to the 14 sacks they’ve accumulated through six weeks.
