The New Orleans Saints played the Carolina Panthers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday and it was the first meeting between Teddy Bridgewater and his former team.
Bridgewater played quarterback for two seasons with the Saints and had a successful stint of games when Drew Brees was sidelined with a thumb injury for weeks. After being picked up by division rival Carolina Panthers in the offseason, Bridgewater played his first game against his former team on Sunday.
Commentators said before the game that they couldn’t get Teddy Bridgewater to say anything bad about his time with the Saints.
During one play, Bridgewater ended up out of bounds and on the Saints’ sideline where he found his old spot on the Saints quarterback bench between Drew Brees and Taysom Hill.

When asked about it in a postgame press conference, Brees said the humorous moment is right in line with Bridgewater’s personality. Brees even played along and showed Bridgewater the surface tablet (that players use to analyze film and pictures from previous plays), asking Bridgewater what he sees.
Despite a solid performance by Bridgewater, the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees got the victory 27-24.
