Fans hoping that Arizona Cardinals offense is real deal

Fans hoping that Arizona Cardinals offense is real deal”

Once the fourth quarter hit, Murray was masterful. But Harrison said his limited snaps against Arizona were not because of his conditioning.

The time for making excuses will be over on Sunday, when the Cardinals kick off the 2019 campaign against the Detroit Lions.

Unfortunately, the Arizona Cardinals did not get the memo as they stormed back from a 24-6 deficit in the fourth quarter to eventually tie the Lions 27-27 in overtime.

Kingsbury wasn't surprised. In fact, it was one of the key reasons he and the Cardinals front office drafted him.

"We're still undefeated", Fitzgerald said.

"I'm very confident in myself and the offense whenever we have the ball in our hands, no matter what it's looking like", Murray - who completed 29 of his 54 pass attempts for 308 yards with two touchdowns and an interception - told the media.

Yes, it would be a spread system, an adaptation of the "Air Raid" he brought with him from college, but the Lions had to prepare without the benefit of watching a Kingsbury-coached regular-season National Football League game, and all the tweaks that should have come with it.

"When it does get rough, that's when you really have to rely on those things", Kingsbury said.

For three quarters, it looked like a desert disaster.

The Cardinals managed just 100 yards of total offense in the first three quarters but gained 287 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Then Murray showed exactly why Arizona was so enamored with the Heisman victor coming out of the University of Oklahoma. If the opposing quarterback could see it, he was certainly going to take advantage.

Tie value: No way the Lions can be happy with the tie. "Late in the game, they just looked exhausted, " said Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, via MLive.com. The good news for Stafford and Bevell is that wideout Marvin Jones is healthy after being limited to nine games in 2018 due to injury. "Most young rookie quarterbacks in the first game could've easily gone in the tank, but that didn't happen to him".

Will Murray live up to the hype? They did that, so it was just me and the linebacker 1-on-1.

Murray showed the ability to make quick decisions in crucial moments and appeared to thrive under pressure.

For all the magic that Murray wielded to close the game, there were real things for the team to work on. The Cards kept just two tight ends on the final roster, Charles Clay and Maxx Williams, but both are talented pass-catchers.

Reality came crashing down on Kingsbury, Murray and Cardinals fans on Sunday afternoon when the team faced off against the Detroit Lions.
