METAIRIE Andrus Peat Jersey 2019 , La. (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton says Teddy Bridgewater will start New Orleans’ regular-season finale Sunday against Carolina.The decision announced Friday afternoon allows starter Drew Brees to rest for playoffs with the Saints already having wrapped up the top seed in the NFC.Bridgewater has appeared in just four games this season and has thrown only one pass, which was incomplete. Now the former first-round draft choice by Minnesota is set to assume his first prominent role in a regular-season game since 2015. A major knee injury has sidelined Bridgewater nearly all of the last two seasons.Payton says Bridgewater has “looked sharp all week,” and has made some “pretty special” throws during practices this season.Payton hasn’t gone into detail about other playing-time decisions Sunday. But the Saints have ruled out offensive linemen Terron Armstead (chest), Larry Warford (knee) and Jermon Bushrod (hamstring) on Friday’s injury report.Saints rank 3rd in ESPN’s NFL Future Power Rankings It’s almost crazy how much the New Orleans Saints are getting love after a rather successful 2017 campaign. Of course, it wasn’t just one season that went into a big rebuild that stretched across three straight 7-9 seasons from 2014-2016. However, last season’s draft class hit in a major way Womens Tyeler Davison 2019 Jersey , and was a big reason why the black and gold were able to get back into the postseason and win the NFC South.Recently, a panel of three ESPN analysts (Louis Riddick, Field Yates, and Mike Sando) projected which NFL franchises were in the best shape for the next three years. The metrics included the team’s roster (which excluded quarterback), quarterback, draft White P.J. Williams Jersey , front office, and coaching. New Orleans came in third. You can view the original article here, which requires ESPN Insider.ESPNObviously, the front office rating wasn’t favorable, but some major progress has been made to help shape the Saints roster. Hitting on nearly all of their 2017 draft picks, with major contributions from Alvin Kamara P.J. Williams Jersey 2019 , Marshon Lattimore, Ryan Ramczyk, and Marcus Williams made believers out of many. However, going back to the year before, the class of Sheldon Rankins, Michael Thomas New Orleans Saints Tommylee Lewis Jersey , Vonn Bell, and David Onyemata can’t be ignored either. Drew Brees is arguably the most important cog in the wheel here for New Orleans. One side note, it’s also interesting to see that ESPN Staff Writer Dan Graziano threw out a prediction of Brees retiring after the 2018 season several days ago. As long as Brees continues performing at a high level, he should be fine. Now is the time for the Saints to make a deep postseason run.
