The Cardinals are 2-0 to start the season, but the win over the Vikings wasn’t pretty. It came down to a missed Greg Joseph kick that determined the game.
Murray acknowledged how ugly the win was.
“I tell you all the time, it comes down to shooting ourselves in the foot and stopping ourselves,” 他说, via the 团队的网站. “When we score, it feels easy, it feels fun. When we turn the ball over, negative plays, it’s like ‘Damn,’ s— feels ugly. It is what it is, we have to continue to get better and continue practicing.”
