Now in his third season in the NFL, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has had time to see and digest the differences between coaching in college and the pros. One of the biggest has been how to motivate players: "At the college level, with that many players on your roster, usually 120, you're going to have to poke and prod some guys to go to class, do their weights, eat their meals, all those things. With here, if you don't do that, you're just not going to be here," Kingsbury said.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said he understood how Urban Meyer felt when Meyer said that every week in the NFL is like playing Alabama. "I heard that," Kingsbury said. "I mean I coached at Texas Tech, so every week felt like the Dallas Cowboys."

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said he has "zero pride when it comes to play calling," something he learned as Texas A&M's offensive coordinator in 2012 with Johnny Manziel as his quarterback: "When you coach Johnny Football, you just take the wins as you can get them. You don't worry about being on time for meetings or showing up for practice some days. You just get him out there Saturday and let him go, and collect a check."

Cards win 34-33 thriller after Vikings miss last-second FG

— Arizona's Jordan Hicks didn't dare turn around as Minnesota's potential game-winning field goal floated toward the uprights. Instead, he watched the videoboard for a moment and then locked eyes with Ezekial Turner, who had been knocked to the turf,...

Kyler Murray finishes with 33.10 fantasy points. That gives him 66.66 through two games, the third-most by any quarterback through that many team games in history (Ryan Fitzpatrick 72.26 in 2018, Patrick Mahomes 67.18 in 2018).

Kyler Murray — assuming his score holds — is only the third quarterback since the merger with 30-plus fantasy points in each of his team's first two games of a season (Lamar Jackson 2019, Russell Wilson 2020).

HALFTIME: What a first half in Glendale. It didn't start pretty again for the Cardinals but Arizona made up for it with big play after big play. Kyler Murray threw for 229 yards in the first half while rookie Rondale Moore had 102 yards receiving. But that wasn't the half of it (no pun intended). Murray spun out of a sack and threw a 77-yard TD to Moore and then Matt Prater kicked a 62-yard FG, setting a new franchise record. Time to take a breath.
