Mon, 09/29/2014 - 2:39pm

Mon, 09/29/2014 - 10:03am

Each week Neil Greenberg will take a look at the numbers from the week to see what trends are emerging.

Teddy Bridgewater can play

Bridgewater’s debut was almost everything you can ask for from a first round draft pick. He completed 63.3 percent of his passes for 317 yards and didn’t throw an interception. And while he didn’t throw a touchdown pass either, he did run one in from the 13-yard line.

A little over a week has passed since the NFL has had a headline that packs a horrible PR hit and there’s a sense that the focus is returning to the football field.

But that doesn’t mean that the domestic violence crisis that engulfed the league starting Sept. 8 has passed and it could still claim the job of the league’s top official.

His coach, Jim Caldwell, was left to talk about whether Suh would like to play for either New York team (or perhaps Chicago or Dallas) when he becomes a free agent five days after the Super Bowl. Or to not talk about it.
