The Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback has a much better day in preseason week three game vs Minnesota Vikings
Yes, he had a couple of passes batted down. That’s something Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will need to work on.
However overall, the rookie quarterback had arguably his best start since the preseason started. He found his receivers and was able to move the ball. The only downside was he never connected on a touchdown pass.
However, it is preseason. We aren’t going to look down on the fact he didn’t throw a touchdown. What we will look at is how he was able to move the ball down the field a few times for scores, albeit field goals.
He connected with several receivers. He even showed he could take some snaps from under center. At this point, it is another step in his growth.
We probably didn’t see much of what we should expect in the regular season come September 8th against the Detroit Lions, but it was still fun to see him in action against the Vikings. He ran himself out of trouble and threw a couple of very pretty passes.
Murray played most of the first half. He played all but the last drive heading into the halftime session. Murray went 14-21 for 137-yards. As previously stated, he didn’t throw any touchdowns but he didn’t throw any interceptions as well.
That will be the last time we see Murray until September 8th. I think at this point, even though the exact offensive plays that will be run haven’t been shown, we get a decent idea of what Murray can do well and what he needs to work on.
He has such a strong arm and such quick legs, he can get himself out of a lot of jams. There was one instance where he lost three yards trying to run, but couldn’t out-run 258 lb Vikings linebacker Ifeadi Odenigbo.
However he slid and didn’t try to do too much. So now he goes into the regular season healthy as we all wanted. Can’t wait until September 8th.
