Kyler Murray

The Arizona Cardinals found themselves in a dog fight with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Down 20-13 about midway through the third quarter, rookie No. 1 pick Kyler Murray stepped up big time. That included him finding fellow youngster Christian Kirk on a 69-yard touchdown to tie the game up.

Bucs cornerback Ryan Smith had no chance. He was burnt from the get by Kirk, who is seemingly coming into his own as a second-year player.

At 3-5-1 on the season, Arizona has been much more competitive than most initially thought. It’s in this that the Murray-Kirk battery mate could make some noise moving forward.
