Sam Bradford was in the zone during the second quarter as he led the Minnesota Vikings on a scoring drive against the New Orleans Saints.

Dealing strikes to his receivers on all three passes on the drive, which went for 74 yards and a touchdown, Bradford was on fire. This can be clearly seen on one particular play. Bradford was about to get absolutely plowed by a Saints defensive lineman. He knew the hit was coming yet hung tough in the pocket and delivered as perfect a pass as we saw throughout Week 1.

Jarius Wright was being tracked by two Saints defenders, and there was no room for error. Just watch this unbelievable throw.

One play later, Bradford has a much easier throw to make when he found a wide open Stefon Diggs in the end zone.\

This score put the Vikings up by the score of 10-6 with a few minutes left in the first half.
