Arizona Cardinals dominated by Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals kicked off the 2022 season on Sunday. Here’s a look back at the game.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray struggled to find a rhythm Sunday against the Kansas City chiefs, while Patrick Mahomes again proved he is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.

The result was a 44-21 victory for Kansas City.

Mahomes finished the game 30-for-39 for 360 yards and five touchdowns. Murray was 22-for-34 for 193 yards and two touchdowns. Most of Murray’s yards and both touchdowns came in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City led from the first drive. The Chiefs were up 23-7 at the half and 37-7 after three quarters.

Murray led the Cardinals in rushing with five carries for 29 yards, but close behind him were Eno Benjamin (4-28), James Conner (10-26), and Trace McSorley (3-20).

Greg Dortch led the Cardinals with seven catches for 63 yards.

It wasn’t just the Arizona offense that struggled. The numbers by Mahomes and the 128 rushing yards the team compiled speak to the holes in the Cardinals defense.
