2021 Thursday Night Football Schedule: How to Watch Packers at Cardinals

Here's the entire 2021 Thursday Night Football Schedule and where to watch each game on TV

Week 8 of the 2021 NFL season kicks off on Thursday night with a highly anticipated matchup between two of the NFC's hottest teams.

The Green Bay Packers will battle the Arizona Cardinals for first place in the conference at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ.

The Cardinals enter Week 8 as the last undefeated team in the NFL. Arizona's lethal offense, led by MVP candidate Kyler Murray currently ranks fourth in the league in points per game while Green Bay ranks 14th.

The Cardinals' defense also has emerged as a force to be reckoned with through the first seven weeks of the season. Arizona's defense has forced the third-most turnovers in the league with 14. Many of those turnovers have come thanks to an incredibly effective pass rush behind the strength of J.J. Watt, Chandler Jones and Markus Golden. Cornerback Byron Murphy is in the midst of a breakout season, catching three of the team's six interceptions, with linebacker Isaiah Simmons, cornerback Robert Alford and safety Buddy Baker getting one each.

However, the Cardinals have yet to face a quarterback on the level of Aaron Rodgers this season. Since losing their season opener to the Saints in Week 1, the Packers have rallied to win six straight games. In that span, Rodgers has thrown for 1,557 yards and 15 touchdowns with just one interception.

But Rodgers and the Packers' offense might be without their best weapon. All-Pro wide receiver Devante Adams was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday and would need two negative PCR tests 24 hours apart to play Thursday night.

The showdown on Thursday Night Football has the potential to be one of the best games of the 2021 season, with Rodgers and Murray's ability to make jaw-dropping throws.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the mid-week showdown.
