No one in the NFL is more difficult to tackle in the open field than Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, and he showed that during Sunday’s game against the Lions.
Murray is like a swiss-army knife for head coach Kliff Kingsbury, as he can manage a game, throw the football and he sure can run.
So when the Cardinals had a first-and-goal scenario from the one-yard line, on which so many other teams would call a traditional run inside the tackles, Arizona did the opposite. Instead, they let Murray run it himself, and he bounced it outside, in search of the end zone. He was met by a Lions player, but Murray faked the poor guy out of his cleats, en route to a go-ahead touchdown.
Murray really is fun to watch.
