Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim said in a radio interview this week that he wanted to see the team’s star players play like stars.
Keim got what he asked for in a 30-10 win over the Jets. Kyler Murray threw for 380 yards and ran for a touchdown, DeAndre Hopkins caught a touchdown, Kenyan Drake ran for one and the defense kept the Jets in check despite losing Chandler Jones to a biceps injury.
Murray’s effort came after two bad outings that dropped the Cardinals to 2-2 on the season.
“Overall, it was a decent day . . . We’ve got weapons. I think we have to use our guys.” Murray said, via the team’s website.
Decent might be underselling things a bit, but the word choice is less important than the comfort level Murray and everyone else on Arizona’s offense showed on Sunday afternoon.
