Soon after, the Cardinals found a resounding turnaround in the end zone, leading to a 42-34 victory over the visiting New Orleans Saints on Thursday. In the afterglow of the victory, the Cardinals minimized Murray’s performance with his coach.

“It’s just one of those things on the court. We have different opinions,” Kingsbury said. “Yeah, he said I didn’t look good on TV and I acted like a blast. So, I don’t know. It’s a Gen Z thing on TV, ‘calm down,’ but I like to express emotions.”

With the helmet off, it’s easy to see Murray’s unsafe comments about Kingsbury’s job as he quickly steps up to the coach and then becomes more active.

This Thursday night in the desert, unions found prosperity.

Murray-Kingsbury controversy gets a lot of attention, but it also happens in Arizona’s scoring barrage On, equally stunning and influential, revolutionized the game.

The Saints led 14-6 and Ingram scored with 2:28 left in the first half. It started a 102-second sequence in which the Cardinals scored three touchdowns, Saints quarterback Andy Dalton threw two picks, and a whole new ball game broke out. It combined to propel the Cardinals to victory with a 28-14 halftime lead, breaking a two-game losing streak and an eight-game losing streak at home.

Hopkins returns and a long-awaited win at State Farm Stadium — first since Week 7 last season — could be followed by a Cardinals victory There is a family feel to it. Of course, family members also quarrel.

“I mean it’s fine,” Kingsbury explained. “I think we’re trying to figure out what we want to be and what we want to do. When you have competitors of this intensity, I think it continues to push us forward.”
