Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray continues to play bigger than he is.

The rookie was named NFC offensive player of the week, after throwing for 340 yards and three touchdowns in a win over the Falcons last week.

The No. 1 overall pick also ran for 32 yards, including his game-clinching conversion run which allowed him to kneel out the clock.

Murray has led the Cardinals to a pair of wins and a tie, perhaps ahead of the pace most anticipated for them this year.
