The New Orleans Saints will go as far as Teddy Bridgewater takes them as Drew Brees is set to be sidelined five more weeks.

The upcoming matchup on Sunday Night Football against an undefeated Dallas Cowboys team is hyping up to be another difficult test for the newly crowned starter. The Saints just got off a Week 3 win over an undefeated Seattle.

With the Cowboys as one of the hottest teams in the NFC, there are a few things that Teddy Bridgewater can do to keep it a close ball game. He was capable enough in the team’s Week 3 outing to squeeze out a victory, but they’ll need more.

After getting an astonishing win against the 2-0 Seattle Seahawks, now starting quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, looks like he can man the helm of the Saints high-octane offense. However, it wasn’t without some contention as the Saints failed to register much offense in the first half.

With a great scoring and momentum push by the special teams and defense, Bridgewater looked more comfortable in the pocket and was able to find Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara to jump out to a comfortable lead that held to the end of the game.

That said, as the former Vikings starter is set to start just his second meaningful game in the past few years, the Saints will likely rely on him to ignite the offense. Here are three things he must improve upon in Week 4.
