Arizona Cardinals vs 49ers, Week 1: Good, bad, ugly
By Scott Allen
A lot of good happened on Sunday. It wasn’t the prettiest game ever but there was certainly enough to get excited about.
DeAndre Hopkins had 14 receptions for 151-yards. The receptions were a single-game career high for him. Welcome to the Cardinals.
Special teams, more specifically the punt block team. Ezekiel Turner came up huge down 10-0 and blocked a punt to quickly put the Cardinals in scoring position. That lead to a Kyler Murray touchdown pass to Chase Edmonds.
Then there is Murray himself. He rushed some passes and took a slide a little early several times but overall he played well. He had 91-yards rushing including a touchdown run. He only ended with 91-yards and not 100-yards because of two kneel downs at the end of the game.
Murray had the touchdown pass and his lone interception was on a tipped ball. Otherwise he was strong on Sunday.
