Kyler Murray’s performance vs. Giants was one of most notable of Week 14

Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield included Murray in the five most notable QB performances of Week 14.

The Arizona Cardinals played well in their win over the New York Giants in Week 14 and quarterback Kyler Murray had his best game in a while. His play in the passing game was better than the previous few games.

Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield included Murray’s performance among the five most notable of the week.

Another team that really helped themselves this past weekend is the Arizona Cardinals. Not only did their win over the New York Giants move them back into the final playoff spot, but their offense got on track in the win. Kyler Murray completed 24 of 35 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown, and the offense looked more in rhythm than it had in the past month. This video highlights how the offensive play designs can give a quarterback information before the snap and options after the snap, and also dives into the alignment and usage of DeAndre Hopkins:

Murray looked noticeably more comfortable making different reads on Sunday. He did not turn the ball over and made a couple “wow” throws as well.

If he can play how he did against the Giants over the final three games, the Cardinals will be in good shape to make the postseason for the first time since 2015.

Haason Reddick is NFC Defensive Player of the Week after 5-sack game

The honors are no surprise after he set a franchise record for sacks in a single game.

It should not have been a surprise, but Arizona Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after his performance on Sunday in Week 14 against the New York Giants. His contributions and the franchise record he set were huge in the team’s 26-7 win.

It is the fifth time this season a Cardinals player has been named a player of the week.

Reddick set a franchise record with five sacks in the game against the Giants. He finished with five sacks, five tackles and three forced fumbles.

He and L.A. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald are the only players this season to log at least four sacks in a game this season and it is the first time in the league a player has had five sacks since Adrian Clayborn had six in a game in 2017.

Through 13 games, Reddick has recorded 50 tackles, 10.0 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 15 QB hits, four pass breakups and three forced fumbles. His sack, forced fumble, quarterback hit and tackle for loss totals are all team highs and also represent career highs for Reddick. After not recording more than 4.0 sacks in his first three NFL seasons, Reddick currently ranks No. 6 in the NFL with 10.0 sacks in 2020.

He revealed after the game on Sunday that he had never had more than two sacks in a game at any level previously.

Reddick is the second defensive player of the week for the Cardinals this year. Safety Budda Baker was the other after his play in Week 6. He was also named the player of the month. Quarterback Kyler Murray has been the offensive player of the week twice, after Week 5 and Week 7. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins won it for his performance in Week 10.

It is the most players of the week honors for the team since 2015, when there were six player of the week awards.

Haason Reddick named ‘hungriest player’ after 5-sack game, wears Snickers chain

He showed off the Snickers chain, something Kyler Murray did after Week 10.

An Arizona Cardinals player has been honored for being the Hungriest Player of the Week by Snickers for the second time. After quarterback Kyler Murray was honored for his play in Week 10, linebacker Haason Reddick earns the honors for Week 14. He had five sacks and three forced fumbles on Sunday in the Cardinals’ 26-7 win over the New York Giants.

The title is particularly apropos being a defensive player, as when, in particular, they get sacks, they call it “eating.”

Reddick ate a lot on Sunday. He had five sacks on the season entering Week 14 and had gone five games without on. He ate early and often, showing how “hungry” he was.

The result is the recognition. As part of it, he is passed the Snickers chain from the previous winner. That was Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller

Reddick showed off the chain on social media.

It was an incredible performance and gives him 10 sacks on the season.

This should not be the only award he wins. He should be considered the favorite to win NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Cardinals Week 14 defensive snap counts and observations

Check out how the Cardinals’ 49 defensive snaps were split up.

The Arizona Cardinals played only 49 total defensive snaps on Sunday in their 26-7 win over the New York Giants. For the first time all year, no defensive player played every snap. How was the playing time divided up?

We go over that for each player and position group below.

The studs in the Cardinals’ Week 14 win over the Giants

Four players and their performance stood out more than any other.

The Arizona Cardinals picked up a big win on Sunday, defeating the New York Giants 26-7 on the road. It ended a three-game losing streak and gave them possession of the No. 7 seed in the NFC, the final wild card spot, with three games to go.

They got big performances from several players.

Who were the studs in the win?

NFC playoff picture: Cardinals retake No. 7 seed with win

The Packers took over the No. 1 seed, Washington takes the lead in the NFC East and Arizona regains the No. 7 seed.

The Arizona Cardinals lost their hold on a wild card berth last week with their third straight loss and fourth in five games. At 6-6, they fell behind the 6-6 Minnesota Viking for the final playoffs seed in the NFC.

In Week 14, though, they regained possession of the No. 7. They defeated the New York Giants 26-7 and the Vikings fell 26-14 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

There was also a change in the NFC East. They Giants and Washington Football Team were tied with 5-7 records entering play on Sunday but New York, because of their season sweep over Washington, held the division lead. New York’s loss to Arizona and Washington’s win over the San Francisco 49ers gave the Football team a one-game lead in the East.

Here is how the NFC playoff picture now looks:

  1. Green Bay Packers, 10-3 (clinched NFC North)
  2. New Orleans Saints, 10-3
  3. Los Angeles Rams, 9-4
  4. Washington Football Team, 6-7
  5. Seattle Seahawks, 9-4
  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 8-5
  7. Arizona Cardinals, 7-6

  8. Minnesota Vikings, 6-7
  9. Chicago Bears, 6-7

The Cardinals now are once again in control of their own destiny. They must stay ahead of the Vikings because Minnesota holds a common games tiebreaker.

Green Bay clinched its division title and took over the No. 1 seed in the conference with a win over the Detroit Lions, while the Saints lost 24-21 to the Philadelphia Eagles. Both with the same record at 10-3, the Packers own a head-to-head tiebreaker.

The Rams and Seahawks both are 9-4. Los Angeles holds a head-to-head win over the Seahawks so they have the NFC West lead. The two teams will face one another in Week 16.

Week 15 matchups to watch

These games will play a role in the NFC playoff picture:

  • Panthers at Packers: Can Green Bay maintain the No. 1 seed?
  • Buccaneers at Falcons: If they lose, the Cardinals could pass them.
  • Bears at Vikings: Both are a game out of the final seed. Whoever loses is almost eliminated from contention.
  • Seahawks at Washington: The Football Team needs to win to stay on top of the NFC East. Seattle needs to win to keep pace with the Rams, who play the winless Jets.
  • Jets at Rams: L.A. will stay atop the NFC West with a win.
  • Chiefs at Saints: The Saints have a playoff berth clinched but a win keeps them in NFC South lead and in contention for the No. 1 seed.
  • Browns at Giants: New York must win and Washington must lose to take over the NFC East again.
