The Las Vegas Raiders fell to the Arizona Cardinals in heartbreaking fashion in Week 2. The loss was an absolute roller coaster for Raiders’ fans. Las Vegas led 20-0 at halftime.
Cardinals’ QB Kyler Murray had quite the second half, and his insane athletic ability created an insane stat versus the Raiders. Arizona needed every point and every yard from Murray to complete an unreal comeback.

The conversion by Murray was one of two that the Cardinals converted against the Raiders.
The defense for Arizona sealed the game in overtime on a fumble returned for a touchdown. Murray was the hero for the Cardinals, though. He threw for 277 yards and a touchdown and ran for 28 yards and a TD.
His athleticism was on full display, and the Raiders could not contain him enough to secure a victory.
The Raiders will look to bounce back next week against the Tennessee Titans. They cannot afford to begin the season 0-3.
