CLEVELAND -- Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray faced a third-and-21 with 8:40 left in the first quarter Sunday against the Cleveland Browns because of an errant snap that resulted in a 14-yard loss.
It didn't matter.
On the next play, Murray took the snap from the shotgun, dropped back four yards, then stepped up about five yards all while keeping his eyes downfield, showing no sign of taking off. Murray then threw a perfectly placed ball over Browns cornerback Troy Hill to Cardinals receiver Christian Kirk, who caught it as he fell to the ground along the left sideline of the end zone. Kirk barely got his second foot in bounds for the touchdown to count before falling out of bounds, giving the Cardinals an early lead.
