CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kyler Murray can’t explain why the Arizona Cardinals continue to start games slowly.
He’s just glad they managed a strong finish on Sunday.
Murray threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns and added another score on the ground as the Cardinals overcame another lackluster first half, rallying with 16 fourth-quarter points to beat the Carolina Panthers 26-16.
