The Cardinals and Vikings played one of the early contenders for game of the year in Week Two.

Now Kyler Murray has been recognized for his performance in the contest.

Arizona’s quarterback has been named NFC offensive player of the week after throwing for 400 yards with three touchdowns and rushing for 31 yards and a TD.

Murray was a candidate for NFC offensive player of the week for his Week One performance against the Titans. Murray threw for 289 yards with four touchdowns and rushed for another in Arizona’s 38-13 victory. But Murray lost out to Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who had a new perfect passer rating in his Los Angeles debut.

Edge rusher Chandler Jones, however, earned NFC defensive player of the week for his performance against the Titans after recording 5.0 sacks.

This is the fifth time Murray has been named NFC offensive player of the week since he was selected at No. 1 overall in 2019.

The Cardinals will start 3-0 if they defeat the 0-2 Jaguars this weekend.

  1. Just curious how does dude win this with two INTs one for a pick 6, sacked three times got out rushed by the opposing QB win NFC Player if the week? It’s comical….lol

  2. Yup, the Murray haters cannot stand this type of recognition… The season is early and there is much more to come. This type of consistency from week to week will be amazing to witness.

  3. All the Murray haters, I love it. The kid is a stud. He’ll win an MVP at some point maybe even this year. Anyone who doesn’t think he’s an excellent QB doesn’t know football or isn’t watching his games.

  4. What happened to Aaron Jones who had four touchdowns, three passing and one on the ground for a running back??

  5. Scratching my head on this one. Do these people not watch the games or do they just watch the highlights?
    I watched the game, Cousins easily outplayed him. Murry had two ints, one a pick six, sacked a bunch of times. His best play he got lucky and hit a wide open receiver with nobody within 10 yards of him, even that ball was underthrown. The only reason they won the game was due to bad coaching and a kicker that missed an xtra point and a game winning chip shot.
