Bills fall short to Cardinals 32-30 in wild finish (full coverage)

Just when it appeared Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills would celebrate his 12th fourth-quarter game-winning drive, Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals had other ideas.

DeAndre Hopkins caught a 43-yard-pass in between three Bills defenders with two seconds left to give the Arizona Cardinals a miraculous 32-30 victory over the Bills on Sunday.

Murray scrambled to his left an eluded a Bills tackler before turning and throwing to a leaping Hopkins, who finished with seven receptions for 127 yards.

The Bills seemed to have victory in hand after Allen found a diving Stefon Diggs in the corner of the end zone with 34 seconds remaining for a 21-yard touchdown that capped a 12-play drive that went 38 yards.





The Bills are coming off of a win against Seattle and have a chance to pick up two-straight wins against NFC West opponents. On the other side, Arizona faced a tough loss to the Dolphins last week and are trying avoid dropping two straight games to AFC East opponents.

The NFC West currently owns the most wins in the NFC and the second most in the NFL with 20 combined wins. The AFC East has 15 combined wins, which is the second lowest win total in the AFC. According to the Cardinals have the ninth-toughest schedule remaining, while the Bills have the 11th.

Buffalo is currently 2-0 against NFC West teams this season with the Cardinals and 49ers remaining on the schedule. Arizona is 1-1 against AFC East teams with Buffalo and the Patriots remaining. Bills head coach Sean McDermott knows his team must dial up a great game plan as they get ready to take on the NFL’s best offense in terms of total yards per game.

“I think we have to come back with a chip on our shoulder this week and put a good week of practice in,” McDermott said. “Have great clarity around how we’re going to go about game-planning and the game plan and the expectation level. We still have a lot of football yet to be played, and we’re going to face a good Arizona team out at their spot. We’re going to have to travel across the country here, so we have to get back to work.”
