Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was thrilled after a huge win over the Seattle Seahawks as he said that's one of the games as a kid you dream about playing. The Cardinals beat the Seahawks 37-34 in overtime to improve to 5-2 and to hand the Seattle their first loss of the season as the Seahawks now have a 5-1 record.
With 1 minute and 4 seconds left in overtime, Cardinals rookie linebacker Isaiah Simmons intercepted Russell Wilson. The Cardinals then set up a 48-yard field goal for Zane Gonzalez, who made the field goal to hand the Cardinals the win.
"These are the games you honestly dream about growing up, watching 'Sunday Night Football' last week, playing on Monday," Murray said, per ESPN. "These are the games that you want to be a part of, and to be a part of these games, you gotta win, and you gotta keep winning.
"So I'm just super proud of the team, the way we fought, not giving up, no matter the circumstances, just keep battling, keep battling. And that's what we did. So I think that's huge for us to take that next step."
Murray kept locked in and fully focused
The Seahawks led for the majority of the game as the Cardinals finished the game with 13 unanswered points to win 37-34. "I don't think I smiled all game, honestly," Murray said.
"Just because it just felt like we just had to have your head down, just keep grinding. Just because when you're playing Russell, anything's possible, and I think everybody saw it tonight. "For me, personally, my mindset was just move the ball, do what I do.
Move the ball, be myself and lead the guys down the field, make smart decisions, take care of the ball. Whatever I see, go with it, trust it and do it with conviction, and let my guys -- obviously, we got a lot of playmakers on my team or on the offense -- get the ball in their hands, and let them do what they do."
Prior to the Cardinals game, the Seahawks were rolling and they entered the game determined to clinch their sixth win of the season and stay undefeated. "Wanting to be the best, you got to beat the best," Murray underlined.
"And that's just the nature of this game. In any sport, you got to beat the best. So I think it was a big, big step for us."
