Tonight, a pair of NFC teams in the thick of the playoff race square off in the first non-divisional game of the year on Thursday Night Football. The Vikings and Cardinals match up, and the Green Bay Packers will have some benefit regardless of which team wins tonight.
If the Cardinals are victorious, Green Bay's path to an NFC North title gets a little clearer, as they will have a chance to take a full-game lead with a win on Sunday. If Minnesota wins, the Cardinals' third loss would mean that the Packers could earn the second seed in the NFC by winning out.
It's a rare Thursday game with playoff impact all around. Enjoy!
