Teddy Bridgewater Promises Next Time He’ll Tackle The Guy

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater regrets not trying to tackle Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay on his decisive 83-yard fumble return for a touchdown on Sunday.

Bridgewater initially said he tried to funnel Slay toward another Denver player who could make the tackle. But Bridgewater realized only after he watched the film that he was the last line of defense and that Slay was in the clear after sweeping past him at the Eagles 45-yard line. Broncos coach Vic Fangio called out Bridgewater for his lack of effort in a team meeting Monday.

Bridgewater said he concurred with his coach.
