Former Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater who left the Vikings after a remarkable injury recovery is now with the New Orleans Saints. Bridgewater and the Saints will be in Minneapolis to take on the Vikings on Sunday night and Vikings receiver Adam Thielen has nothing but praise for his former teammate.

“Yeah, I can't wait to see him. I said it earlier this week, you know, he's been a huge part of my career and probably, definitely wouldn't be the player I am today without him. He's just an unbelievable guy that cares more about any of his teammates than he does about himself. And, it's really cool to see where he's come from, from the injury and I'm so excited for him to be where he's at, you know, it's fun to see him in the preseason doing really well. And, I think he's in a great spot.”

Theilen joined Dave Lee Thursday morning on WCCO’s Morning News and was also asked about last season’s win over the Saints on Stefon Diggs 61-yard game winning "Minneapolis Miracle" TD as time expired.

“Probably the thing I remember most is just being in shock. I couldn't really move, I couldn't really talk, I didn't know what to think. I wasn't sure if the game was over, if there is a flag, what happened. What an unbelievable moment. Something I'll never forget. Um, but obviously this is a completely different year and a different team obviously, and we're just excited to go out there and, and try to put a w in the wind.”
