Teddy Bridgewater made his return to NFL action on Sunday with the Vikings beating up on the injury-riddled Bengals.

Bridgewater, seeing his first game snaps since the 2016 preseason, entered in the fourth quarter with the Vikings leading 34-0 on the verge of an 11th win and NFC North division title. Bridgewater wore a brace supporting his surgically-repaired left knee, which is nearly 16 months recovered from a dislocation and multiple torn ligaments suffered during a non-contact practice drill Aug. 30, 2016.

Starting quarterback Case Keenum took a seat after securing his 10th win for the Vikings, completing 20 of 23 passes for 236 yards and two passing touchdowns. Keenum added a 20-yard scramble on the opening drive.
