Arizona Cardinals fans came out in full force for a huge matchup that will be the team's fourth primetime game of the season and their third evening matchup at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The Cards (10-2) will look to clinch a playoff spot when they host the Minnesota Vikings (8-4) on Thursday Night Football. Arizona is currently in position to secure the No. 2 overall seed in the NFC and a first-round postseason bye.

Both teams are dealing with a number of injuries, especially on defense. But predictably, Cards fans are certain that their team will dominate the Vikes and advance to the playoffs for the second straight season.
