On Friday night, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray made his 2021 preseason debut – and it didn’t work out too well.
Murray faced off against an improved Kansas City Chiefs defense that had the Cardinals offense reeling from the opening snap. The former No. 1 overall pick completed just 1-of-4 pass attempts for two yards.
He also had one carry for eight yards. Murray and the Cardinals offense just couldn’t get into a rhythm and he failed to pick up a first down in any of his three drives on the night.
Here’s what he said, via ESPN’s Lisa Salters:
“Not the outing we had hoped for. But it is what it is. Doesn’t count. Look forward to the regular season starting in a couple weeks.
I just think we’ve gotta clean some stuff up, get some things right. They kicked our butt for the three drives we were out there. It is what it is. We’ll be better when it counts.”
Murray and the Cardinals will need to be much better during the regular season if they want to keep pace in a crowded NFC West.
The team added wide receiver A.J. Green, who should help take some pressure off of De’Andre Hopkins. Arizona will be fighting for a playoff spot in 2021 if Murray can improve on his tremendous 2020 campaign.
