Tom Pelissero mentions that it’s possible the Vikings could give Teddy Bridgewater more playing time for their season finale against the Bears, assuming there’s nothing to play for at that point.
The Vikings have already locked up the NFC North and the Packers could very well be starting a backup quarterback in Week 16 if they’re out of the playoffs, so it would make sense for the Vikings to use this opportunity to see what Bridgewater could do with an extended look, considering that he’ll be an unrestricted free agent next year.
