Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray develops playing skills in virtual NFL Pro Bowl


Kyler Murray may not have been able to show up on the field for his very first Pro Bowl, but instead he showed off his playing skills in this year’s Virtual Pro Bowl.

Murray kicked off the NFC team, facing Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson in a first quarter game against Madden NFL 21.

The second-year quarterback put the NFC on the board first, converting to fourth and using Vikings Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook to find the end zone.

Just like he has done several times in real life, Murray raced his virtual self to get the first one.

But the virtual Kyler doesn’t seem as fast as the real Kyler, at least to Snoop Dogg who thinks the QB’s Madden rating is too low.

“You’re supposed to be faster than this Kyler,” Snoop Dogg laughed.

Murray currently has an overall Madden rating of 82.

After Watson missed a placement for the AFC, Murray handed the lead to Bubba Wallace of NASCAR for the second quarter with the NFC in the lead, 7-6.

Murray also improved his coaching skills, calling a play for Wallace, who went on to score for the NFC with remarkable Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams and longtime NFL running back Marshawn Lynch joined Murray and Wallace on the NFC team, while Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, former wide receiver. NFL Keyshawn Johnson and rapper Snoop Dogg rounded out the AFC squad.

The NFC team took the win with a 32-12 victory, and Murray was named MVP of the match.

Murray was one of three Arizona players voted Pro Bowlers this year, joining Hopkins and safety Budda Baker. They were all represented on the virtual lists.
