Thursday Night Football: Cardinals at Rams - TV, Time, Odds, and More

Thursday Night Football Open Thread

Good even New York Giants fans!

Week 15 gets started tonight with a match-up between NFC West rivals, the Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams.

The Cardinals enter the game with a 10-3 record and the lead in the division. It has been "Next Man Up" all season for the Cardinals. They have lost major contributors all over their defense, their starting quarterback, and their starting running back.

The Rams, on the other hand, come in to this game with a 6-7 record and last place in their division. Like Arizona, St. Louis is also down its starting quarterback. But despite their record and missing quarterback, the Rams aren't a team to be taken lightly. Their defense has dominated their last two opponents, allowing the Rams to score a combined 76-0 over the last two weeks. Granted, their last two opponents have been the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins, so they are in for a jump in competition.

It will be interesting to see how the two back-up quarterbacks deal with the pressure brought by the high-powered defenses.

TV: NFL Network

Time: 8:25 p.m. ET

Odds: Rams are 4.5-point favorites.

And as always, use this as your open thread for this evening.
