Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals nearly finished an improbable comeback on Sunday in the rookie’s debut, rallying from an 18-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 24 in regulation.
The Cardinals had two chances to win in extra time and so did the Lions, but all they could do was trade field goals and settle for a 27-27 tie.
Murray was 15 of 19 for 154 yards and two touchdowns during the fourth-quarter comeback. Overall, he was 29 of 54 or 308 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Matthew Stafford threw for 385 yards and three touchdowns for the Lions, but they couldn’t put together drives in the fourth quarter to stop Arizona’s momentum.
Larry Fitzgerald, in his 16th NFL season, finished with eight catches for 113 yards.
