In week five of the NFL season, Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals earned their first win of the season on a game-winning field goal against the Cincinnati Bengals, 26-23.

The matchup was headlined by tough defense until the fourth quarter. Kyler Murray completed 20-of-32 passes for 253 yards, as well as rushing for 93 yards and the first touchdown of the day.

 On the Cardinals final drive, Murray made a crucial 19-yard scramble to set-up Zane Gonzalez for a game-winning field goal.

Murray and the Cardinals will look to continue their winning ways against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.

The former Sooner threw for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns in his senior year at OU, in addition to winning the 2018 HeismanTrophy.
