Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray grew up in the state of Texas but that does not mean he was at any point in his life a Dallas Cowboys fan. Murray was pretty direct about that when asked about it recently, suggesting that it was hard for him to cheer for Dallas had never been good during his formative years.

That’s one way to get even hated more by another team’s fanbase, though, it’s unlikely that Kyler Murray would care at all. The focus for Murray and the Cardinals is not to get loved Dallas fans, but to get even loathed more by winning more.

But it’s also objectively understandable why Murray never develop a deep connection with Dallas. He was born in 1997 and since then, the Cowboys made the playoffs just nine times. In the first 10 years for the current Cardinals signal-caller, the Cowboys went to the postseason only three times, losing in the wild card round twice.

If anything, what Kyler Murray just said should be added fuel to the showdown between his Cardinals and the Cowboys in Week 17 of the upcoming 2021 NFL season.

Back in the 2020 NFL season, Murray led the Cardinals to a 38-10 win in Arlington over the Cowboys during Week 6. Murray went 9 of 24 for 188 passing yards and a couple of touchdowns without an interception, while also rushing 10 times for 74 yards and a score.
