Cardinals winger Kyler Murray threw 283 yards and three touches while running 106 yards and a touch on Sunday, but those numbers weren’t enough for the Cardinals to win against the Dolphins.
Dolphins scored 10 points in the fourth half while Chase Edmonds was halted in the fourth half to finish off a drive and Zane Gonzalez popped up in an on-field goal after failing to finish in the third and first half having can tie the game. The 34-31 defeat left the Cardinals unable to overtake the Seahawks at NFC West, but Murray said after the match that was not the focus of his mind.
“Personally, I’m not really worried about first place in the league,” Murray said at the post-match press conference. “I don’t think anyone should worry about that. I don’t think anyone should worry about that. We come out and lay an egg. We have to become better ”.
Murray had converted the score 4 and 1 earlier in the game by running in 28 yards, so head coach Kliff Kingsbury faced the question of the plays they called at those late spots. He said he had “some bad calls coming late” and the memories of them will lingering a bit as the Cardinals continue to face the Bills.
