Thursday Night Football is just a few hours away from kicking off. This week, the Minnesota Vikings host the Washington Redskins in an NFC battle.

Each team is heading in the opposite direction in regards to success. The Vikings are 5-2 after winning their last three games. Minnesota looks to keep pace with the Packers in the NFC North Division.

Washington has been abysmal to say the least. The Redskins are 1-6, good for last place in the NFC East Division. Jay Gruden paid the price for the team's lack of success, losing his job earlier this month.

Gruden's refusal to play QB Dwayne Haskins may have been the motive for his firing. Now, interim head coach Bill Callahan hopes to salvage some of Washington's season.

Ahead of Thursday night's game, ESPN has released its final prediction.

The computer model's Matchup Predictor calls for a big time Minnesota win tonight. The Vikings have a 91.6 percent chance to come away victorious, according to ESPN's Football Power Index

Vegas is also anticipating a huge win for the Vikings. Minnesota is currently a 16.5-point favorite. The game's over/under is set at 42.

If ESPN's prediction holds true, tonight's game could get ugly fast.

Vikings-Redskins kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET on FOX.
