The Arizona Cardinals head north to visit the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday
Well, a trip to Minnesota in November is what the Arizona Cardinals get as reward for finishing in first place in 2015. They face the defending NFC North champion Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, indoors at their new stadium.
You likely won’t find many complaints amongst Cardinals players for a trip up north in November. What you will get on Sunday though is a lot of noise. Some have said that U.S. Bank Stadium is louder than CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The two teams met in December last season. The Cardinals came away with a 23-20 victory on Thursday Night Football. They were able to secure the victory with a Dwight Freeney sack of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Neither player will be on the field on Sunday. The Vikings now have Sam Bradford running the ship at quarterback with Bridgewater on injured reserve. The Cardinals allowed Freeney to walk away as a free agent after the season ended.
