A NFC battle for dominance is on display tonight, as the Minnesota Vikings (8-4) take on the Arizona Cardinals (10-2).  Can Teddy Bridgewater navigate his team to victory, or will Carson Palmer light the torches of a Viking funeral as they roll toward a top-two seed in the upcoming playoffs?

Vikings (8-4)

They are tied for first place in the NFC North, but they lose the head-to-head tiebreaker to the Green Bay Packers, who defeated the Vikings 30-13 in Week 11.  While Minnesota has eight wins on the season, they are somewhat one-dimensional on offense as they continue to struggle to get their passing game going.  The Seattle Seahawks (7-5) literally blew them out 38-7 in front of the hometown Minnesota fans last Sunday.

Cardinals (10-2)

Arizona has a commanding lead in their division, and they just blew-out the Rams (4-8) in a 27-3 tilt in St. Louis.  Meanwhile, Seattle is coming on strong in second place with a 7-5 record, while the San Francisco 49ers (4-8) anchor last place in the NFC West.
