It was back and forth and neither team could deliver the knockout blow, and then in the end Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals showed you why they have held the line, as they win 25-23 in Murray’s return to the field.

Murray threw for 249 yards and one interception.

Kyler Murray had 33 yards rushing, James Conner had 73 yards rushing, and McBride was the first tight end since 1989 to go over 100 yards receiving as he finishes with 131 receiving yards and the Arizona Cardinals are back in the win column.

They gave Murray and the offense enough time to get down the field an setup a 23-yard game winning field goal for Matt Prater who kicked four today.

Of course on the final drive, Murray reminded us why he is so special:

Welcome back and welcome back to the win column for the Arizona Cardinals.
