Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray didn’t hold back at Sunday’s postgame press conference following a close loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Murray was 18-for-29 with 191 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The interception came in the first half at 4 and 1. The Chargers scored on the ensuing drive. Arizona could only add seven points in the second half and at one point punted three straight times.

He talked about the offense after the game and didn’t mince words.
“No, that wasn’t about Hop, actually,” he said of the interception. “Schematically, I mean, they were kind of screwed.”
He added that the lack of execution ultimately gave the game away.
“The whole game we had more or less what we wanted. Our four-minute offensive run made us lose the game. Defense, I don’t think they should have put them in that situation.”

The Chargers did not want a tie to send the game to overtime. Head coach Brandon Staley, known for his aggressive nature, went for a two-point conversion after an Austin Ekeler touchdown lead to a thrilling 25-24 win over the Cardinals.
Justin Herbert and the Chargers’ offense met at the Arizona 38-yard line and just under two minutes to play down 24-17. A touchdown was needed to keep the game alive.
Herbert went to work, finding tight end Gerald Everett for a 10-yard gain, then Keenan Allen on a 16-yard play to put the Chargers in the red zone. From there, Herbert found Ekeler, who stayed close to the goal line with 18 seconds left. It seemed inevitable that Ekeler was going to get the ball back immediately, and he did to make it 24-23.
However, the Chargers know that the playoff implications came this week. They hit .500 this week and battled for a wild card with the Kansas City Chiefs pulling away in the AFC West.

So Staley set up the 2-point conversion instead of sending it into overtime, and Everett was the man Herbert found in the end zone.
