Sam Bradford gets the start, starts with a few safe passes

The Vikings wanted to ease Sam Bradford into things, which is why he didn’t play last week.

And in the context of his first start, they made sure to do the same.

Bradford’s first pass was to the guy he’s going to get it to most often, a short swing pass to Adrian Peterson for no gain. He did complete a 15-yarder to Adam Thielen for a first down, but then their progress stalled and they punted to the Packers.

It was a safe set of downs, for a team that figures to play conservatively anyway.

    That old db can’t hang apparently.

    Everyone’s been talking about the Viking D but so far it’s the Packers D that’s shining.

    Get used to short, safe passes & next to no mobility. That’s Bradford’s bread & butter

    They should have sent pepto bismol to season ticket holders after they consummated the trade.
