Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was asked after Wednesday’s practice if he has any personal goals for the 2021 season, his first year in Denver.
“No,” Bridgewater said. “The only goal that matters to me is winning. Of course, you want to win the first game and the last game, and if you’re doing that hopefully you’re doing something special at the end of the season. Every day I come in here it’s about winning. Whether it’s winning the day or winning the rep and then ultimately on Sundays winning the games.”
That kind of mentality is exactly what the Broncos need from Bridgewater, and it’s probably part of the reason why teammates elected him as a captain.
“It’s something you take pride in, and I just look forward to being the best football player I can be and being the best leader that I can be,” Bridgewater said of serving as a captain this fall.
Bridgewater will lead Denver on the road against the New York Giants on Sunday. The Broncos are considered slight betting favorites.
