The Arizona Cardinals executed the unthinkable on Sunday afternoon against the Buffalo Bills while pulling all eyes on them ahead of Sunday Night Football. With former Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins securing a Hail Mary toss from second-year quarterback Kyler Murray to down the Bills as time expired, social media erupted like few times before as football fans literally witnessed one of the most incredible and eye-popping plays of all time.
As a result, Hopkins, who caught the game-winning touchdown over not one, not two but three Bills defenders, immediately took to Twitter to put his skills on full display—again.

Murray also took to social media after heaving the Hail Mary down field to Hopkins, though the former Oklahoma Sooners standout and No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick from 2019 took a bit of a different approach. However, it is hard to doubt Murray’s thought process here as he is no doubt speaking the truth.
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiid….. Hop down there somewhere! 🌚🧞♂️ @DeAndreHopkins

Leading up to the eventual connection between Murray and Hopkins, the Bills performed some impressive magic of their own in the final minutes of regulation against the Cardinals. Bills quarterback Josh Allen brought his team back from three points down en route to taking a lead, one that seemed like it would hold up as a comeback victory.
Even though Bills wideout Stefon Diggs hauled in a diving grab of his own that surely would have made some highlight reels if not for Murray and Hopkins, Buffalo’s late heroics unfortunately won’t be remembered at all.
