Bridgewater has spoken of his faith before, describing how his devout mother instilled Christian teachings in him as a young man in a 2014 interview. [firefly_embed] [/firefly_embed] His mother raised him and his three siblings as a single parent, according to a 2014 TwinCities.com profile. He was a first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings that year. After a horrific leg injury ended his 2016 season with the team, Bridgewater said it was part of God’s plan. “I never asked God why this happened to me, I’ve only told him thank you,” he said in an August 2017 tweet, according to Sports Spectrum. “A year later, he’s showing me why this happened to me. Blessed.” Bridgewater had a career-high 18 touchdown passes as the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback last year.
