NFL: Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the best teams in 2021 will face on Thursday Night Football, but there are caveats. The Green Bay Packers (6-1) are a contender with Aaron Rodgers, however this week they are not the same team with a COVID outbreak forcing both Devonte Adams and Allen Lazard out of the lineup. That makes the Arizona Cardinals (7-0) the clear favorite in this game.

The Cardinals are the best team in football and its not even close. They have a Top 5 ranked offense and a Top 10 ranked defense. They are a complete team. Even if the Packers were healthy, I’d still pick the Cardinals here but in a closer contest.

Kickoff is set for Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 6:20 p.m. Mile High time at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix, Arizona and will air on NFL Network, Amazon, and FOX. If you are looking for an online stream elsewhere, fuboTV will be streaming this game.
