Arizona Cardinals doubters are a dwindling breed.
The NFL’s last unbeaten team stayed so in emphatic fashion Sunday with a 37-14 thrashing of a vaunted Cleveland Browns team. They improved to 6-0 with the win and remain the NFL’s only unbeaten team after claiming the mantle in Week 4.
They did it on both sides of the ball against a Browns team that’s pegged as an AFC contender. Once again, quarterback Kyler Murray took center stage on a four-touchdown day.
The Cardinals opened the game with a 20-0 second quarter lead. The Browns threatened to make a run with a 57-yard Baker Mayfield Hail Mary to Donovan Peoples-Jones to end the first half trailing 23-14. But a battered Browns team had no answers in the second half as the Cardinals ran a 14-0 shutout after halftime to secure the dominant victory.
