Target Corporation (TGT) - Get Report may have beat Wall Street's expectations for its third quarter earnings, but the big box retailer still faces a long road to recovery in an age dominated by Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report .

Target's competitors will be watching and for the Target team, it's game on.
