Week 13 of NFL: Murray Raises Cardinals & Lions Get First Win While Chiefs Get Fourth Straight Victory

The Arizona Cardinals are almost fully healthy. That was highlighted on Sunday, when Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins returned from their bye week to help the team win 33-22 over the Chicago Bears, improving their record to 10-2. That’s good enough to put them a game ahead of the Packers, who have a bye, in the NFC standings. Murray tossed two touchdown passes and ran in another, while James Connor racked up over 100 yards of total offense.

The Cards’ defense also produced, picking off Andy Dalton four times in the win. Elsewhere, the Detroit Lions finally got that first win of the season at the 12th attempt, taking down the Minnesota Vikings 29-27 courtesy of a last-second touchdown as time expired. Jared Goff, who had nearly 300 yards for the game and three touchdown tosses, engineered a 75-yard drive with under two minutes to go, and he found Amon-Ra St. Brown for the winning score as the clock ran out. That brings the Lions to 1-10-1 and will at least make them feel good for a while. Over the in the AFC, things got even tighter as the Baltimore Ravens lost and the Kansas City Chiefs won. The Chiefs won over the Denver Broncos 22-9 on SNF, bringing their record to 8-4 and tying them with three others in the conference for the top spot. Despite their struggles this season, and there have been many, they have now won four straight, and are in prime position to claim home-field advantage.
