This was certainly not the way that the Detroit Lions envisioned themselves starting the 2019 campaign, especially when their first game once again came against a rookie quarterback in his first ever official NFL action!
The Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kyler Murray stunned the Lions at State Farm Stadium in Glendale yesterday afternoon, rallying to tie the Lions for a 27-27 final.
How were the fans and media members reacting? Check out a few examples:
It took him a while, but Kyler Murray just took over this game, with his arm and legs, to tie it with two late TD passes and a 2-pt conversion pass. 43 seconds to OT.

Okay @K1, I see you. I see you. 18 pets in the 4th QT for the @AZCardinals. Scored tied at 24 with seconds left. OT is about to arrive.
