Thursday Night Football: Saints at Cardinals (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread, More

Chicago Bears

At face value, the Saints and Cardinals doesn’t seem like much to get excited about tonight. But, anything is better than the last two weeks of Thursday Night Football, right? *chuckles nervously*

I mean, we get primetime Andy Dalton and a depleted Saints wide receiver group on the road against Kyler ‘Call of Duty’ Murray. What can go wrong?

But seriously, Deandre Hopkins makes his season debut after serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Plus, Robbie Anderson will make his Arizona debut after being traded from Carolina on Monday afternoon.
