Instead, they ended up with a swift punch to the gut.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — The NFL's showcase game in Mexico City featured two teams going in opposite directions in a hurry.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Kyler Murray's journey to NFL stardom appears to have hit a plateau.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft is having perhaps the worst season of his four-year career and it's one of many reasons the Cardinals (4-6) have struggled going into Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.

“Vitamin W is always good,” Cardinals cornerback Antonio Hamilton said, referring to Sunday's win over the Rams.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Colt McCoy realizes every time he steps on an NFL field these days might be his last chance to play, so the Cardinals' 36-year-old backup quarterback got some friends and relatives out to Los Angeles this weekend when he became pretty sure he would have to fill in for Kyler Murray.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The return of DeAndre Hopkins was obviously a boost for the Arizona Cardinals.

A pair of underachieving 2-4 teams face off on Thursday night when the Arizona Cardinals host the New Orleans Saints.

The Arizona Cardinals remember days like that, even if they're OK with their current situation.

That's pretty much how defensive lineman Zach Allen would rate the season's first four weeks.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kyler Murray can’t explain why the Arizona Cardinals continue to start games slowly.
He’s just glad they managed a strong finish on Sunday.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay has seen plenty of Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray over the previous three seasons.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kyler Murray appears content to let face smacks that happened in Vegas stay in Vegas.

For the Arizona Cardinals and Las Vegas Raiders, the 2022 season started with a dud.
