The Kyler Murray-led Arizona Cardinals are hot on the heels of the NFC West table-toppers Seattle Seahawks heading into Week 9. Kliff Kingsbury’s side put in an emphatic display to beat the Seahawks last weekend. Star quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins starred in that win.
Ahead of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, the Cardinals remain contenders to make the Playoffs in 2020. But what does franchise quarterback Kyler Murray think of his team? Is he keeping track of their competitors? The video below indicates the exact opposite.
Against popular opinion, Kyler Murray’s Arizona Cardinals are doing quite alright in the league this season. They sit second behind Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West Division table. But it seems like their star quarterback is not aware of his team’s achievements this season.
As of Saturday, the Cardinals are the top-ranked offense in the NFL as per ProFootball. But Murray was not aware of that and reacted accordingly, saying, “Is that real? I don’t know that, but I guess it’s because we’re doing something good.”
Murray has been brilliant over the last 7 games in the league. He has thrown for 1,847 yards with 13 TDs and 7 interceptions.
Meanwhile, Murray also spoke about his opponent, Tua Tagovailoa, on Sunday. The former Heisman Trophy winner had nothing but kind words reserved for the path-breaking Miami Dolphins rookie.
“The times that I’ve been around him, I can’t say anything bad about Tua — great dude, down to earth, great player. I don’t know him too well, but the times that we were around each other was nothing but good times,” Murray said via The Sun Sentinel.
The Dolphins are second in the AFC East Division table behind the Buffalo Bills. They are in desperate need of a win this weekend.
A morale-boosting win against the top-ranked offense in the league will be just the kind of push Tagovailoa needs if he wants to lead the Dolphins to the Playoffs in 2020.
