Cardinals move to 2-0 after Vikings miss last-second field goal
Kyler Murray threw three touchdown passes and added a rushing touchdown for Arizona
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Kyler Murray threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns and the Arizona Cardinals stayed perfect on the season when the Minnesota Vikings missed a last-second field goal Sunday, Sept. 19.
It was a fitting ending to a seesaw game that saw the lead change eight times.
In the end, the Cardinals won 34-33 and moved to 2-0 on the young season.
The Vikings (0-2) put together a near-perfect final drive, picking their way down the field while managing the clock so they would get the final play of a wild game in the desert.
All that was missing was the finish. Greg Joseph pushed a 37-yard field goal wide right as time expired, leaving the Vikings deflated for the second straight week.
Murray was stellar and added a rushing touchdown to go with his 400 yards and three scores passing.
But he did have two costly interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown.
