Preparing for the 2021 season, there was warranted optimism from everyone associated with the Arizona Cardinals. Everything rested on the development and growth of Kyler Murray. In addition, adding talent to his support cast was pivotal to the improvement of the offense.
Since selecting Murray first overall of the 2019 draft, the Cardinals' wins have increased each year. His rookie season added two wins from 2018, three more in 2019, and currently sitting atop of the standings with nine wins. Albeit, Murray has missed three straight games with a sprained ankle.
