GLENDALE, Ariz. — Dwight Freeney stripped the ball from Teddy Bridgewater with five seconds to play to deprive the Vikings a chance at the tying field goal and the Arizona Cardinals clinched a playoff berth with a 23-20 victory over Minnesota on Thursday night.

Bridgewater moved the Vikings to the 31-yard line, well within the range of Blair Walsh. But Freeney hit the quarterback’s arm as Bridgewater tried to pass. The ball came loose and Calais Campbell recovered.

Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 47-yard field goal with 1:23 left for the winning score as Arizona (11-2) won its seventh in a row.

Bridgewater passed for 335 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (8-5), who were playing without four defensive starters.

Carson Palmer threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns for the Cardinals.

EAGLES: DeMarco Murray is no Keyshawn Johnson. The 2014 NFL rushing champion made no demands – “Just Give Me The Damn Ball” – in his first comments to the media since a report said he complained about his role to owner Jeffrey Lurie on the plane ride home following a 35-28 win over the Patriots.

Murray said he sat next to Lurie by coincidence.

“I love playing for this team, I love the fans,” Murray said Thursday. “When I signed on that dotted line I knew I was going to be here for a long time and I’m committed to win a lot of games here. Obviously, it’s a tough year for myself and the team so far, but we’ve still got a chance.”

Murray has been a bust after leaving Dallas and signing a $40 million, five-year contract with $21 million guaranteed. He played just 14 of 61 offensive snaps in a stunning upset at New England last week and Coach Chip Kelly said Murray was unhappy with his role.

JETS: Cornerback Darrelle Revis, who has missed the last two games because of a concussion, said he expects to be cleared to rejoin the Jets on Sunday against the Titans.

“I practiced,” Revis said, “so I’ll be ready.”

Revis returned to the practice field Thursday, though he did not face any contact. He must be examined by a doctor and released from the NFL’s concussion protocol before he can be cleared to play Sunday. The Jets hope that will happen Friday.

GIANTS: Being in the playoff chase with four games left in the season has Tom Coughlin excited.

The 69-year-old is so energized, he started doing jumping jacks at his news conference to share his feelings.

What got Coughlin going was a question about the range of emotions he felt in the past few days. The downer was Sunday when the Giants blew a 10-point lead and lost to the Jets in overtime.

It was wiped out on Monday when Dallas got a late field goal to beat Washington and create the three-way tie in the NFC East, with all three teams having 5-7 records.

When asked about how the Cowboys’ win changed the emotions in the building, Coughlin started doing jumping jacks, something he did in the team meeting.

“Jumping jacks for every meeting like that, that’s for sure,” he said.

Giants players got a kick out of Coughlin’s exercise.

“I have seen the jumping jacks,” quarterback Eli Manning said. “They’re impressive.”

Hall of Fame coach John Madden was released from the hospital after undergoing open-heart surgery.

The NFL said Madden left a San Francisco hospital Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery.

The 79-year-old Madden coached the Oakland Raiders from 1969-78, leading his team to a Super Bowl victory after the 1976 season. He became a household name after retiring and then becoming a broadcaster.

RAMS: St. Louis cornerback Janoris Jenkins missed his second straight day of practice with a concussion, while tight end Lance Kendricks returned from a concussion.
