Remember when people thought that Kyler Murray should play baseball?

Well, they were wrong. The 2018 Heisman Trophy winner has been nothing short of exceptional in his first two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals and joined an exclusive club on Sunday.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury elected to roll the dice on 4th-and-1 around midfield in the third quarter and called a read-option. Murray took it for 28 yards with an electric scramble to the sideline.
