It’s no secret that the Arizona Cardinals have upped up the ante this season. The NFC West franchise has thrived under Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury in 2020.
Quarterback Kyler Murray, in particular, has taken his game to a whole new level while justifying expectations in the build-up to the season. Another player who has been terrific for the Cardinals is the new summer signing, DeAndre Hopkins.
On 60 receptions, Hopkins has 734 yards and 3 touchdowns to his name in his debut season for the Cardinals. But there have been reports suggesting that quarterback Kyler Murray is demanding more from the veteran wideout.
At a recent pre-game press meet, Hopkins shot down these frivolous rumors while using the legendary Tom Brady as a reference point.
“I love it. I think that’s what makes us closer…I’ve heard some stuff in the media saying ‘beef,’ & stuff like that, because Kyler gets on me, but you never hear about Tom Brady beefing with his teammates…
Along with Hopkins, fellow Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has also found his feet. An impressive defense has now powered the Cardinals to second in the NFC West Division table.
They are currently on a 5-3 record heading into Week 10 of the ongoing season. They go up against Josh Allen’s Buffalo Bills this weekend before facing off against Divisional rivals, Seattle Seahawks, the following week.
Based on their last meeting a couple of weeks ago, we can’t wait for another Russell Wilson-Kyler Murray showdown.
