There's a damn good game on tap in the desert tonight with the Vikings facing the Cardinals. Both are division leaders and headed for the playoffs, which means this could end up being the first of a couple meeting between them.
The Cardinals come in at 10-2 and are led by Carson Palmer who is having an MVP season. In hindsight, he and Jared Veldheer would like to thank the Raiders for allowing them to leave.
Vikings are 8-4 and are in a fight with the Packers to win the NFC North. They were destroyed last week by the resurgent Seahawks and are hoping not to suffer the same fate in prime time.
The staff has the Cardinals taking this one.
