NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Games like tonight’s should draw more eyes than an ordinary Thursday Night Football matchup. In week four, the games start being carried over the broadcast airwaves, and FOX gets a great game to add to their schedule. Two of the top three teams in the NFC according to Bovada’s Super Bowl odds square off in a possible preview of a playoff matchup.

One team is riding high on a three-game winning streak, scoring 33, 34, and 35 points in successive games this year. The other is coming off an embarrassing upset loss to a 17-point underdog in which they could not reach double-digits themselves.

Green Bay Packers fans will be full-throated in their support for the Rams tonight as they host the Vikings, as a Minnesota loss gives Green Bay a chance to pull a game up on the preseason favorite in the NFC North. Here are all the details you’ll need to tune in for tonight’s contest.
