Rescuing Rally Cat — Inside the secret life of a St. Louis Cardinals legend

“SportsCenter” almost never reveals its No. 1 play. Oftentimes, the teaser highlight doesn’t even make the cut. But in this case, there was absolutely zero doubt that the play of the weekend (and maybe of the entire 2020 NFL season) was the Cardinals’ game-winning pass to beat the Bills in Week 10.

It was quickly dubbed “Hail Murray,” even though elements of the play weren’t traditional Hail Mary aspects, and also ignoring the crucial role in the play Hopkins played. But it’s got a nice ring to it, so that’s fine. This is our breakdown of “Hail Murray,” one of the greatest
