Key games

The Cardinals dominated the game from the start, scoring with each of their five possessions in the first half.

Murray found Christian Kirk with a 21-yard touchdown pass to cap his first series, then chose Hopkins for a 13-yard score to finish his second and see Arizona quickly go up 14-0.

The Cardinals were a little guilty, however, for not quite putting aside a sloppy Cleveland team. Mayfield’s first fumble of the day and an interception thrown at Robert Alford only resulted in field goals in Arizona – Matt Prater managed to 36 and 51 yards to see the lead expand to 20.

Mayfield finally put the Browns on the board with an 11-yard touchdown to Peoples-Jones, then, after a third Prater FG, he finished the half with a superb 57-yard Hail Mary score to the same receiver to reduce the deficit at 23. -14.

After both teams provisionally opened the second half on offense, Arizona began to break free after Mayfield spat out his second fumble of the day, Murray conceding with a second strike at Hopkins.

Cleveland tried to respond, but a fourth pass from the Arizona seven-yard line was abandoned by Beckham and Murray finished the game with his fourth touchdown pass – a 14-yard throw to AJ Green – with a bit less than five minutes to play.
