In overtime, the Cardinals forced a fumble from Hunter Renfrow which Byron Murphy Jr. recovered and returned 59 yards for the touchdown.
There was a bit of a scare, however, as Murphy was thought to have celebrated too early, kicking the ball before crossing the goal line. But the call held, and the game was over.
But that game doesn’t happen without the Cards’ insane comeback in the fourth quarter.
The Raiders had the ball in the lead 23-7 with 12:37 to go, but after Arizona forced a three-and-out, Kyler Murray walked downfield and a 24-yard catch by Marquise Brown put the Arizona at one meter line. Darrel Williams got the score, but what happened on the ensuing two-point conversion was unbelievable.

It goes down in the box score as a 2-yard run for the successful conversion, but according to Next Gen Stats, Murray ran over 84 yards before bringing the Cards within eight points.
The Cardinals then forced another Raider punt, and in the final 4:43, the Cardinals ran an 18-play, 73-yard drive that ended in a rushing touchdown by Murray as time expired. Needing another two-point conversion to send the game into overtime, Murray found stalwart veteran AJ Green in the back of the end zone.
The Cardinals got the ball first in overtime, but turned it over in tryouts. Fortunately, it didn’t matter.
The Cards picked up their first win of the season as the Raiders fell 0-2 in a stacked AFC West.
