The 4-2 Arizona Cardinals will take on the 4-2 Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at Mall of America Field in Minnesota. The two teams come into the game after tough week 6 losses and both look to rebound. The teams have enjoyed some surprising success so far this season, but have had recent slip-ups and injuries to deal with as of late. The game is set to kick-off at 1 PM ET on the FOX network and should provide for a good NFL match-up that could easily come down to the wire.
The Cardinals come into the game with serious running back issues after both of their expected premier backs went down this year. Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams have both been placed on IR with Williams officially out for the year. Quarterback Kevin Kolb, also is on the injured list and will miss this Sunday’s game after suffering a rib injury last week against the Buffalo Bills. It is a miracle Kolb has lasted this long given all the times he has been hit and sacked this season so far. One thing for certain is his replacement, Skelton, may be in for a long painful day.
Minnesota comes into the game much healthier and has remained relatively healthy so far this year, which has helped their success. Last week, their slip-up came against RGII and the Washington Redskins who beat the Vikings 38-26 at home. Minnesota did an OK job holding RGIII in the game until when it mattered most at the end of the game with a chance to get the ball back and win. This is when they let RGIII slip away and score a game winning 70 plus yard touchdown run. This is something I can assure you will not happen against Arizona this week.
