The Vikings vs. Cardinals live stream online and televised 2015 NFL game highlights the Thursday Night Football schedule for Week 14. Both Minnesota and Arizona are very much alive in the NFC playoff hunt, with the Cardinals considered a Super Bowl favorite for many weeks now. Minnesota has been leading their division, but suffered a loss at home against Seattle and will now need a bounce back win on the road to stay on top. The 2015 NFL live streaming and televised coverage will be presented through NFL Network and several other sources on Thursday night.
According to ESPN.com in their Dec. 10 game report, the Arizona Cardinals have been seemingly under the radar in the NFC with a record of 10-2 overall and 4-1 at home. Due to the success of the undefeated Carolina Panthers, Arizona may have been unnoticed by many fans so far, but are certainly amongst the contenders to win it all. Should they win tonight, they could secure a playoff spot. They can also clinch their division if they get that win and Seattle loses or ties at Baltimore this weekend. Arizona enters this game off a 27-3 win over St. Louis in which quarterback Carson Palmer racked up 356 yards and two touchdowns.
On the opposing side, Minnesota has been in a bit of a downward spiral since previously leading the NFC North. Their recent loss at Seattle now has them behind Green Bay, who is also 8-4 but defeated the Vikings 30-13 several weeks ago. The two teams will meet again for their final game of the season in Green Bay on Jan. 3, but a win tonight could hinge on how well Teddy Bridgewater plays and how well the defense does despite being so banged up. As of this report, a variety of key players were ruled out including nose tackle Linval Joseph, linebacker Anthony Barr and free safety Harrison Smith.
After first opening at a touchdown in their favor, the line now has moved to -11 in favor of Arizona. Minnesota is a +435 underdog, while the Cardinals are -500 favorites at home. The points total is currently at 47 for over/under bettors to speculate on. In terms of future odds to win the Super Bowl in 2016, Arizona is second overall with odds of 6 to 1, trailing the Patriots and Panthers who are tied with 5 to 1 odds currently.
