Viking will lose comfortably again against a good team but of course it'll be all the officials fault

Could be another blow out this with that Vikes D hit hard by injuries.

36-10 Cards.

Feels like we've conceded this game and using it as a mini bye week to get our defensive playmakers fit for the vital home games against the Bears and Giants in Weeks 15 & 16.

Makes sense to me - only had chance for 1 and a half training sessions before having to fly down to Arizona. TNF doesn't really work in my view, especially for the away team.

Cards by a comfortable 15+ for me.

Some stats from the Cards game day thread I liked.

Cards are 1-3 on TNF? If they can win tonight it will be the first time they have won on a Thursday night*

The first game between the Cards and Vikings was played on October 6 1963 - the day I was born.

*The Thursday night 'win' was a 27-26 victory over the Cowboys on Christmas Day 2010. Christmas Day was a Saturday so the league moved the game back to Sunday to increase the TV audience.

We really ought to win this and secure a playoff game.

Even healthy I don't think the Vikings are as good as they appear. The win percentage of teams they have beaten is .387 (I know, some of you will take offence to that, but its how I see it). I want them to beat someone really good so that I can believe. Perhaps that is tonight. They have a talented defence, which they clearly build any victory off, but with the injuries, it is going to be hard.

As the year goes on we continue to look brilliant on offence, and very good in the secondary on defence. Still the overwhelming, in fact, only concern is the lack of pass rush. it's a major worry. I don't think it will cost us tonight, but someone will take advantage of it.

Anything can happen, and the Vikings have plenty of talent, but we really ought to win.

Vikings 16 - 31 Cardinals

The only way that I can see the Vikings having any success tonight is if they run Bridgewater on the reverse keeper on at least a couple of occasions early.That may force the Cardinals D to hold off on crashing down to the run and free up Peterson a bit.

Otherwise I can't see any reason why the Cardinals won't be playing their second string in the fourth quarter.
