Cardinals QB Kyler Murray’s fiery reaction to loss vs. Lions
Even after back-to-back defeats, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is still much confident in where his team is at this point in the campaign.
The Cardinals came away with one of the more notable upset results of the season, as they fell to the Detroit Lions by a 30-12 final score in Week 15. The Murray-led Cardinals offense struggled to string together multiple promising drives in the contest, which included failing to record a single red zone touchdown drive.
Last season, the Cardinals had a golden opportunity to push for a playoff spot in the NFC. In the end, a 2-5 finish to the year saw them miss out on playing playoff football in January due to their 8-8 record.
As the Cardinals quarterback noted during his post-game press conference, he does not see that his team will end up mirroring last year’s collapse over the remainder of this season.
“Not at all,” Murray said. “We’re still 10-4, still in first place. This is nowhere near where we were last year, and we’re not going to allow it to be.
“We know who we are. We know the guys we have in the locker room, we’ve got the talent, we’ve got the coaches, we’ve got the leadership. It’s about locking in and playing to our capabilities.”
As it stands with multiple games still to be completed in Week 15, the Cardinals hold the No. 4 seed in the NFC. They are still alive in the fight for the top seed in the conference, but a three-game winning streak to finish off regular season play sure is now needed from them.
