Kyler Murray showed why he was No. 1 overall pick vs. Lions

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray scrambles against the Detroit Lions during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 8 2019 in Glendale Ariz Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals - 9/8/19 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Cardinals quarterback led the team on five consecutive scoring drives to give Arizona the improbable result.

After all that drama, Murray's debut ended in a tie that nearly seemed like a win.

Matt Prater made a 33-yard field goal with 3:48 remaining in overtime to help the Detroit Lions salvage a 27-27 tie with the Arizona Cardinals, who overcame an 18-point fourth-quarter deficit Sunday in Glendale, Ariz.

The Cardinals had two chances to win in extra time and so did the Lions, but all they could do was trade field goals and settle for a 27-27 tie. Both head coach Kliff Kingsbury and No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray will make their debuts Sunday at home against the Lions. David Johnson benefited too; he hauled in six passes for 55 yards and a score (as a receiver).

The Detroit Lions will look to forget about the preseason after finishing with an 0-4 preseason record following a 20-16 loss to Cleveland in their last outing. Murray found Christian Kirk on the 2-point conversion to tie it with 43 seconds remaining.

Kyler Murray had already produced a few storybook moments during his first game as an National Football League quarterback and seemed on the verge of another in overtime.

"I'm very confident in myself and the offense whenever we have the ball in our hands, no matter what it's looking like", Murray - who completed 29 of his 54 pass attempts for 308 yards with two touchdowns and an interception - told the media.

There some bright spots in the loss, including Stafford who went 27/45 for 385 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound tight end, the No. 8 overall pick in April, was a problem for the Arizona secondary, creating mismatches all over the field. Travis Fulgham had 3 receptions for a team-high 80 receiving yards while Isaac Nauta logged 3 grabs for 45 yards and a touchdown. However, a Chandler Jones strip sack of Matthew Stafford keeps them from capitalizing.

He struggled for a full three quarters, but the Cardinals' No. 1 pick came to life in overtime and mounted an incredible rally - one that almost resulted in a win.

The Cardinals still do not have a touchdown with Kyler Murray on the field.

Given how bad Murray and the Cardinals were for three quarters, they'll take it. This was on track to be a win that set a good tone for a much-needed strong second season for head coach Matt Patricia.

It was a collapse, a completely brutal one, for the Lions.
