The NFC West is primed for a wild, wild finish with Kyler Murray right in the middle of it.
Murray’s 43-yard Hail Mary heave was hauled in by DeAndre Hopkins with one second remaining to move the Arizona Cardinals into a three-way tie for first place with a miraculous 32-30 victory over Buffalo in Glendale. Ariz.
Josh Allen had nudged Buffalo (7-3) ahead 30-26 with 34 seconds remaining with a 21-yard touchdown toss to Stephon Diggs.
Starting at his own 25-yard line, however, Murray completed three straight passes to move the Cardinals past midfield with 11 seconds to go.
The former Heisman Trophy winner scrambled to his left and heaved the ball across to the end zone, where Hopkins out-jumped three Buffalo defenders to snare the last-second touchdown.
Murray also scored twice on the ground for the Cardinals (6-3) to become the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to have a rushing touchdown in five consecutive games. The most-recent of four quarterbacks in NFL history to accomplish the feat was Green Bay’s Tobin Rote in 1956.
The Los Angeles Rams’ defensively fueled 23-16 win over slumping Seattle — combined with Arizona’s comeback victory – resulted in a three-way tie atop that division at 6-3 with seven games remaining for each team.
Russell Wilson was intercepted twice by Darious Williams, sacked six times and held without a TD pass for the first time this season as the Seahawks lost for the third time in four weeks following a 5-0 start.
