MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Teddy Bridgewater gave the giddy fans chanting his first name a pair of go-ahead touchdown throws to cheer for in the fourth quarter, giving the Minnesota Vikings a 30-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night.

Bridgewater floated a back-shoulder fade pass from 2 yards out to Rodney Smith with 18 seconds remaining for the lead, after the Cardinals had gone ahead on a bizarre fourth-down score about a minute earlier.

On that final drive, Bridgewater completed six of seven passes for 77 yards. The first-round draft pick from Louisville, who finished 16 for 20 for 179 yards, found Allen Reisner for a short touchdown and Jarius Wright for the 2-point conversion with 7:57 left.
