Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins shine as Arizona stuns San Francisco

    The Arizona Cardinals kicked off their 2020 campaign by defeating the defending NFC champions.

    A slew of fourth-quarter touchdowns and a solid defensive performance late propelled Arizona to a 24-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

    In the fourth quarter, Kyler Murray scored a 22-yard rushing touchdown, and DeAndre Hopkins had a clutch 33-yard reception to set up a one-yard touchdown by Kenyan Drake to give the Cardinals the advantage.

    Hopkins, in his first game as a Cardinal, had a career-high 14 receptions for 151 yards. Furthermore, five of his receptions came on the two fourth-quarter touchdown drives.

    Murray finished the game 26-for-40 with 230 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. He also rushed for 90 yards on 13 carries.

    The 49ers got the ball back with five minutes to go, but the Cardinals’ defense came through when it counted the most — in the red zone.

    Patrick Peterson broke up a pass in the end zone, and Byron Murphy knocked away two passes, including one with just 33 seconds remaining in the action.
