Kyler Murray’s NFL debut was fairly disastrous through three-plus quarters today. The Arizona Cardinals’ No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft was struggling mightily until the fourth quarter – along with the rest of his team.
Then, something changed.
Murray and the Cardinals stormed back from an 18-point deficit to force overtime. Arizona and Detroit ended up tying, 27-27.
The former Oklahoma star finished the game with a very respectable stat line, throwing for 308 yards and two touchdowns. He added three carries for 13 yards.
Murray took to Twitter following the game to send a message.
“Special day… started off slow but proud of the way we fought as a team. Learn and grow,” he wrote.

Murray has a lot to be proud of for his fourth quarter and overtime performance. The Cardinals have a lot to build on moving forward.
