Aaron Rodgers had a fantastic game against Arizona Cardinals, throwing 2+ touchdown passes for another game. The run continues for Green Bay, as they draw level with Arizona at 7-1. Where one undefeated streak stops, another streak hits the mark, and of course Aaron Rodgers is involved in it. But Kyler Murray did not have a poor game either this Thursday.

Emerging out an incredible talent pool, Kyler Murray has really shone this season. He led the Cardinals to seven straight wins and constantly found his targets. AJ Green, DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore were always clear to catch a pass from Murray. This offensive line is very clearly the best in the league.

With a team so strong, Arizona has established themselves as strong favorites to qualify for the playoffs. Unless Los Angeles Rams pull off a shocker in the NFC West, the Cardinals are easily heading into the playoffs. Recognising their true potential, Aaron Rodgers commended Kyler Murray for his recent run of powerful performances in his post-match interview.

“I said I respect the way he plays. He’s starting off with some incredible years he’s put together. He’s so talented, he runs all over the place. I said we will see him in the playoffs.” If it’s come out from the 2020 MVP’s mouth, chances are it’s going to be true. Kyler Murray and Arizona Cardinals can light up the 2021 NFL playoffs.

Both Rodgers and Murray are in the run for 2021 MVP, along with big names like Tom Brady, Derrick Henry and Lamar Jackson. However, Rodgers and Murray have entered the upper echelon of MVP candidates as they go 7-1. If Brady touches 7-1 when the Buccaneers play New Orleans Saints, we’ll likely have a three-horse race for MVP honors.
