Vikings vs. Cardinals, Thursday Night Football: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, odds

The Vikings and Cardinals open Week 14 of the 2015 NFL season. We've got all the TV schedule nuts and bolts to get you ready for this potential playoff preview.

We're back for Week 14 of Thursday Night Football! The NFC gets a potential playoff preview, as the Arizona Cardinals host the Minnesota Vikings. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT on NFL Network.

This is a big one for two potential playoff teams. The Cardinals head into this game at 10-2, and can clinch a playoff berth with a win, and the NFC West with a win and Seahawks loss. Given that the Seahawks are facing the Baltimore Ravens this weekend, I doubt Arizona gets that lucky. Minnesota is 8-4 and tied with the Green Bay Packers for the NFC North lead. Green Bay has a win in hand against Minnesota, so the Vikings need to win just to keep pace for now. The Packers are hosting the Dallas Cowboys this weekend, so a road win over Arizona would be huge for the Vikings.

The Cardinals opened as a touchdown favorite, but the line has climbed to 8.5-points, with one sportsbook going as high as ten. The Vikings will be without both starting safeties, a defensive lineman and a linebacker, so it is not surprising money is coming in heavily on the Cardinals. I think the Cardinals offense has its way with the Vikings defense, but we'll see what the short week means for this game.

Here is everything you need to know about tonight's game.
