The Carolina Panthers have to find a way to stop Kyler Murray if they want to secure their second win of the 2020 season against the Arizona Cardinals.
Coming up against quarterback Kyler Murray is a problem that most NFL teams haven’t been able to solve during his brief but sensational start to life at the next level. Some questioned whether the signal-caller was worth the No. 1 overall pick in 2019. But his doubters have been well and truly silenced.
Murray showed enormous promise as a rookie and has propelled himself to a completely different level this time around. The Carolina Panthers will need to come up with some sort of solution to try and limit his ability to make his presence felt and if they can do this, then it might come with their second straight win.
There did appear to be some kinks in Murray’s armor against the Lions last weekend, which was the Arizona Cardinals’ first loss of the season. His three interceptions were uncharacteristic, but he was still electrifying otherwise.
One suspects that Murray will still get his fill no matter what the Panthers throw at him. Their defense was much improved at the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3, but that was against a rookie quarterback in Justin Herbert who was still finding his feet.
It might be extremely hard to do, but here are three ways the Panthers can try and stop Murray’s sensational skillset at Bank of America Stadium.
