It's Teddy time in New Orleans.
With the New Orleans Saints already locking up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will start over Drew Brees in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Carolina Panthers, coach Sean Payton said.
Brees hinted at the move earlier this week when he told reporters he expected Bridgewater to see significant playing time against the Panthers.
After suffering a devastating knee injury before the 2016 season, Bridgewater has attempted just three passes in two years. The 26-year-old isn't worried about the long break from meaningful action.
