Is it just me or is it a bit dusty in here all of a sudden? This is why people love sports so much. Bridgewater suffered one of the worst injuries you’ll see in sports, and some thought he’d never play again.
Now he’s back on the field, the fans are loving it and it’s just great to see.
Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for him to throw an interception.
Yikes. Bridgewater’s pass over the middle intended for McKinnon is tipped an intercepted.

And Bridgewater is intercepted.

At the end of the day, who the hell cares about the interception? It’s just great to see him back on the field.
