NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thursday, friends and fans!

Coming off of his game-winning Hail Mary connection, former Oklahoma Sooners QB Kyler Murray is set to lead his Arizona Cardinals on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. K1 led the Cards to a win in the teams’ first meeting this season, and the winner of tonight’s rematch will take sole possession of the top spot in the NFC West.

Before the game, tune in for an exclusive interview between Murray and FOX Sports’ Erin Andrews where they’ll take a look back at the amazing Hail Mary pass from K1 to star WR DeAndre Hopkins.

A lot is on the line as far as potential playoff positioning is concerned in this west coast clash. Thursday Night Football kicks off at 7:20 p.m. CT on FOX and the NFL Network.

Now for today’s Hot Links! Oklahoma’s advantage in Bedlam can be found in the trenches, a couple OU commits rise in the recruiting rankings, a Dubs star likely faces another major setback and more!
