Kyler Murray's first meaningful NFL game didn't start so hot.
Through three quarters, the Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback had completed just 9-of-25 passes for 70 yards and an interception. He'd also suffered a sack at the hands of J.R. Sweezy, his own offensive guard:

Murray's one of the league's most diminutive quarterbacks—and Sweezy does boast an impressive 36-inch Vertical Jump—but the former's attempt to leap over the latter during a game still went about as well as you'd expect.
Murray was able to turn things around in the fourth quarter, however, and eventually rallied the Cardinals to a tie with the Detroit Lions. He finished with 308 passing yards and two touchdowns.
