The Hail Murray was one of the most thrilling plays for the Arizona Cardinals this past season.
The game-winning touchdown by Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is now an award-winning play.
Just in case y’all forgot (but we’re not sure how you could).

In Week 10 of the 2020 season with 11 seconds left, Murray completed a 43-yard pass to Hopkins in the end zone while covered by three Buffalo Bills defensive players. The Cardinals would go on to win the game on that play, 32-20.
On Saturday during the annual ESPYs awards, the Hail Murray won the award for Best Play.
The Hail Murray beat out Seattle Seahawks wideout DK Metcalf chasing down Cardinals safety Budda Baker, Marshall’s Jamil Roberts’ title-winning goal vs. Indiana and Simone Biles’ vault at the U.S. Classic.
The Cardinals game-winning touchdown play was also named the 2020 Bridgestone Clutch Play of the Year at NFL Honors in February.
