Arizona Cardinals passing game looks impressive in debut

The starting field position couldn’t have been much worse for the rookie quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. Austin Ekeler of the Los Angeles Chargers had coughed up a fumble at Arizona’s two-yard line, putting Kyler Murray’s back up against the wall. With the coolness of a cucumber, however, the first-overall pick of the 2019 draft led his team out of it.

Murray played in just one series, but it certainly was an impressive one. The 22-year old exhibited the poise of a veteran, completing six of seven passes for 44 yards on the drive. Murray flashed outstanding arm strength, and every one of his throws was on the mark.
