As of now, it seems like Bridgewater will be back under center for the Panthers this week, though after watching P.J. Walker last week, they could keep him on a short leash. If Bridgewater is healthy, he should have no issue with his Week 12 matchup against the Vikings. There are just four teams who've allowed a touchdown pass on more than 6.0 percent of attempts, and the Vikings are on that list. There have been five quarterbacks who've thrown for three or more touchdowns against them, and that's despite just three quarterbacks throwing the ball more than 37 times against them. Meanwhile, Bridgewater has thrown multiple touchdowns in five of his last seven games. The Vikings pass rush has been a major issue for them, as they're averaging just a 27.1 percent pressure-rate on the season, which ranks 27th in the NFL. While operating in a clean pocket, Bridgewater has a 116.7 QB Rating, which ranks eighth among quarterbacks. Then you look at the position they struggle the most with (wide receivers), and you combine that with Bridgewater's highly-targeted players, you realize that this matchup is very good for him. The downside is not knowing if he's truly 100 percent. If he gets in a full practice by the end of the week, Bridgewater can be considered as a decent QB2 with top-12 upside, though there is certainly risk.
