The anatomy of ‘Hail Murray’: How Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins concocted Cardinals’ game-winning catch

Kyler Murray’s Hail Mary to DeAndre Hopkins was so incredible that when “SportsCenter” teased its Top 10 Plays the day after, they played a highlight of the catch with an anchor saying, “Well, I think we know which play is going to be number one.”

“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

Jamal Murray drops 50 while wearing Breonna Taylor, George Floyd shoes: ‘They give me life’

Jamal Murray was left speechless and out of breath following the Denver Nuggets’ 119-107 win over the Utah Jazz on Sunday night, which forced a Game 7 in their opening-round playoff series at Walt Disney World.

Prince William has joined sports stars including England rugby hero Jonny Wilkinson and tennis champion Jamie Murray on a zoom call to talk about mental health as sport returns.

William, 37, has spent much of the last year looking at how the stigma around mental health can be broken down, and has used football to encourage men in particular to start conversations with friends.

Now he has joined together stars from across the sporting world, telling them it is “vital” to talk about mental wellbeing as life begins to get some semblance of normality after the coronavirus pandemic.

Also on the call were Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds, Paralympic cyclist Dame Sarah Storey, skeleton racer Lizzy Yarnold, and former Arsenal and Lionesses footballer Alex Scott.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden also joined them, as did former England international Ledley King, and England international hockey player Maddie Hinch.
