In a fight of existing vs. future, youngster Kyler Murray swiped the program from MVP front-runner Russell Wilson as the Cardinals bordered the previously unbeaten Seahawks 37-34 in overtime on Sunday evening.
The Cardinals (5-2) never ever led up until Zane Gonzalez struck a 48-yard field goal with 15 seconds continuing to be in OT to give them the triumph. The fact Seattle (5-1) never trailed before after that was because of an additional excellent performance by Wilson, who sometimes looked leading. Wilson completed 33 of 50 passes (66 percent) for 388 backyards and also three touchdowns, all to Tyler Lockett, that hauled in 15 catches for 200 yards. After the pair incorporated for their third score of the night, a 3-yard toe-tap TD to offer Seattle a 34-24 lead with 6:44 continuing to be in regulation, it appeared as if another tight Seahawks win was imminent.
Then Murray actioned in. After an unsportsmanlike conduct charge against the Seahawks on a Gonzalez basket attempt provided Arizona’s offense an initially down, Murray finished an 8-yard TD pass to Christian Kirk for the duo’s second scoring link of the night. That made it a three-point game, 34-31, with 2:28 continuing to be in guideline.
After Arizona used its final timeout, the Cardinals’ defense came up significant with a stop on third-and-short, offering the sphere back to Murray with 52 seconds on the clock. Murray led another picture-perfect drive to set up a 44-yard field goal from Gonzalez to send out the game to OT.
The big awesome for Wilson and also Seattle was three interceptions by Arizona’s defense. The Seahawks got away with the initial two after D.K. Metcalf’s touchdown-saving deal with on Budda Baker and also Quandre Diggs’ prompt choice to offer the ball back to Seattle in the fourth quarter. However the third time was the appeal for Arizona, as newbie linebacker Isaiah Simmons snagged Wilson’s hand down third-and-long to provide the sphere back to Murray at Seattle’s 49 with 57 seconds continuing to be.
From there, Murray had the ability to get the ball in basket range for Gonzalez, who missed out on an effort to win the game with 2:42 left in OT after a successful kick was nullified by Arizona having to call a timeout to prevent a delay of game charge. Gonzalez redeemed himself as well as made the winning kick.
Murray finished the video game completing 34 of 48 masquerade 360 lawns and 3 TDs, along with 14 brings for 67 yards and also a rushing TD. In a game where he was playing second fiddle a lot of the evening to the QB with whom he has actually usually attracted contrasts, he had the ability to triumph.
