NFL 2014 Thursday Night Football (Week 5) Vikings Vs. Packers: TV Schedule/Streaming & Preview

For the 2nd week in a row division rivals will face-off on Thursday Night Football as the Minnesota Vikings take on the Green Bay Packers in what should be an action- packed match-up.

The game will be broadcast from Green Bay’s home turf, Lambeau Field , at 8:25 P.M. (EST)  on both CBS and the NFL Network.

(Unlike in years past, this year the NFL Network will air 7 Thursday night games between September 11 and October 23).

Live streaming will be available from the NFL Network, DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket, Verizon and Manscave Football.

Streaming through the NFL Network is free, but can only be accessed through a participating cable provider and only through your home WI-FI Network: it can not be accessed when traveling.

The DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket requires a subscription, which starts at $199 and is available to all Direct TV customers.

Those who do not have DIRECTV, but live in NY City, Philadelphia or San Francisco are eligible to purchase the service as well.

Verizon customers who have the Verizon Wireless More Everything Plan can also watch the game through live stream for free, as they dropped the $5 service fee for this season.

There is also HD streaming service available form Manscave Football, which can be used on any device anywhere you go.  They have various packages, from $9.99 a month and up, offering access to all the games, replays, highlights and stats.

These 2 teams have been battling for a long time, with Green Bay dominating their meetings with an impressive 7-1-1 record against the Vikings.

The one tie came during week 12 of  last season, leaving the Vikings itching for a rematch after coming so close to finally beating them.

Both teams have the same record (2-2), but Green Bay is the favorite here, especially since the Vikings have rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater leading them and an offense that has been struggling without Adrian Peterson.

Although Bridgewater  and the offense looked good in the Vikings win over Atalanta last week it’s going to be a lot different this week.

Bridgewater will probably suffer nerves and make some mistakes without the home crowd to support him, which could cause the offense to sputter again.

The Packers, on the other hand, are coming off an impressive win against the Bears last week, quieting fans who thought they were in trouble this season.

They have a great weapon in QB Aaron Rodgers, who is the best there is when playing at home and driving an offense, but have to get their rushing game going if they want to continue to win.

Look for the Pack to win this one, 27-24.
