Luck hasn’t been on Bradford’s side as back in 2011 he only played 10 games. In 2013, only seven games because of an injury and in 2014 he didn’t played at all. However, 2016 was the year of the quarterback. He played 15 games with the Vikings and his stats finished with a 3,877 yards with 20 touchdowns. He also did 5 interceptions. He helped the team as he averaged 84.4% on throws. On Monday, Bradford scored 3 times against the New Orleans Saints. Luckily for Minnesota, they can count with Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray to replace Bradford’s absence. In an emergency, they can also count with Case Keenum.
In 2016, Keenum marked 2,201 yards, 11 interceptions and helped the Los Angeles Rams with 9 touchdowns throws. He can help the Vikings for a while, meanwhile Bradford recovers from his injury. The team is currently competing for the playoff spot on their league. They have to fight for that place against Green Bay as the NFC North contestants.
