Listen: Audio Emerges From Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins Moment

Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals had a brief sideline tiff during last Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Thanks to HBO's Hard Knocks, we can now hear the content of their back-and-forth. The exchange started because Hopkins was unhappy Murray did not throw him the ball when he felt he was open.

"One [Murray's number], what you lookin at bro? What's you see?" Hopkins can be heard asking in the Hard Knocks footage.

Murray responds that he was looking at Hopkins, who says that "s--t was wide open."

"I'm trying to win!" Hopkins continued. 

"I'm gonna get you the ball! I'm gonna get you the ball! Calm the f--- down!" Murray fired back. 

Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury defused the situation by calling the entire offense over for a meeting. 

After the game, Hopkins downplayed the confrontation.

If we're being honest, this type of back-and-forth happens more often than we probably know during games, so it might not be that big of a deal.

However, the Cardinals' 3-6 record is a major problem. Arizona has lost four of its last five and sits in last place in the NFC West.

The Cardinals have a wealth of problems right now. It would help if their quarterback and best wide receiver could get on the same page though.
