In a recent post on Reddit, it was revealed that NFL Quarterback Kyler Cole Murray is a huge Call Of Duty fanatic. However, the data showed otherwise because of how he has been performing in the double XP events lately.

Kyler Murray is a well-known NFL Quarterback for Arizona Cardinals. In his career, he had seen many ups and downs but none come close to his Call of Duty graph. Not only this, but the fact that his CoD performance is actually affecting Cardinal’s graph, raises some serious concerns.

Kyler Murray and his Call of Duty graph

In the Reddit post, a fan dug out and calculated details about Murray’s Call of Duty history, for the last few football games. The results are a bit shocking as well as concerning for Cardinal fans. Mostly because it was made clear that the 24-year-old quarterback loses focus on his football game when grinding for rare skins in Call of Duty.

The graph shows how Murray, during the double XP events, performed negatively both on the gridiron and CoD too. As for any Non XP event, his performance shows Murray’s passer rating plunge from the upper 90s into the 80s, while the Cardinals’ win percentage plummets similarly.

Murray has led the Cardinals to a record of 18-16-1 during regular-season games, with a win percentage of 0.529. They are 4-7 on 2XP weekends, with a victory percentage of 0.360.

Why does Murray have such plummets?

The reason behind this is Kyler Murray‘s (recently rescinded) study hall clause. It was stated in the clause that Murray cannot be allowed to watch TV, browse the internet, or play video games. After this, rumors started floating that Murray plays a lot of Call of Duty and can’t focus on his football studies.

It is to be noted that the quarterback has to face a lot of issues with the Cardinals because of this. His contract recently got some addendum that led to him getting coerced by the authorities. Thus, it looks like a sort of dilemma for him to come out of the situation.
