Well, the complaints about the quality of the matchups on Thursday Night Football will have to wait next week when the St. Louis Rams host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tonight, it's a clash of two playoff-bound teams in the NFC West-leading 10-2 Arizona Cardinals and the 8-4 Minnesota Vikings who are knotted up with the Green Bay Packers atop the NFC North.

They're familiar foes for St. Louis Rams fans. The Rams beat the Cardinals on the road back in Week 4, 24-22, but last week's 3-27 hammering at the Cardinals' hands is likely more memorable. As for the Vikings, it was the 18-21 overtime loss in Minneapolis that kicked off this five-game losing streak for the Rams.

So with just four weeks remaining in the 2015 NFL Regular Season, we've got a quality one to kick things off tonight.

Here's to something as entertaining as last week's thriller as the Packers beat the Lions with a last second bomb from Aaron Rodgers. A man can hope.
