Good news everyone, Thursday Night Football is back in action!
Today we have a great game, as NFC titans clash as the Arizona Cardinals face the Minnesota Vikings. On the fence and worried you will pick the wrong team in your pick em leagues? Have no fear! I will help you pick the right team for tonight's big game.
The Vikings are one of the best teams in the league that no one is talking about.
While the Vikings may not be one of the most attractive teams to watch, they are very effective at what they do on both sides of the ball.
For Minnesota, everything starts with the running game. NFL Superstar Adrian Peterson leads the way, as he has 1,145 rushing yards on 245 attempts, which is good for 4.8 yards per carry. In regards to passing, Teddy Bridgewater has taken the role of game-manager this year, but has been a good one. He doesn't make too many mistakes and moves the ball down the field when needed.
Defensively, Minnesota is one of the best teams in the NFL. They are ranked 4th overall in points per game in the NFL. They only allow 226 passing yards a game, which is good for 6th in the league as well. The Cardinals running game is suspect, which means they will look to pass the ball early and often. Minnesota is great at stopping aerial attacks and punish teams with their running game on three and out series. This is the perfect matchup for Minnesota.
This will be a close one, but I'm betting my chips on Minnesota on this one.

Who do you guys think will take the Cardinals vs. Vikings matchup?

I say the Cardinals
Vikings will win 馃馃憤
Vikings, don't like em but I think they'll bounce back today
I'm sorry but @jeff4122 got me on this one and I'm going to go with the Cardinals!
Even though I can't stand the Vikings I think they will wing.
